  QUEEN LAUNCH '40 YEARS OF QUEEN' eBOOK
19th December 2012



ian watkins



Following on from the phenomenal success of the book release last year, 40 Years Of Queen is being released as a stunning enhanced ebook. Built using Apple iBooks Author, this will delight Queen fans and anyone with an iPad.

This is Queen's and Carlton Digital's first ebook, and the most advanced music ebook on the market and retails for a special low price of just £9.99.

The book contains biogarphies of each band member, including dynamic photo galleries, handwritten lyrics and audio quotes and the full story of the legendary rock band is presented in an imaginative and thrilling way.

Readers are able to seamlessly purchase Queen iTunes products without leaving the page. Other enhanced ebooks like this require you to stop using iBooks Reader and go into iTunes separately - this is the only product where you simply hit a button and the relevant iTunes page pops up in front of you.

MetalTalk's Mark Taylor was at the launch of the eBook held in one of the tea rooms at the Groucho Club in London and whilst munching on as many complimentary cookies as he could, Mark listened to Brain May whilst he gave a demonstration of the book.

Brian May has kept all the memorabilia from his time in the band in a massive room at his home and now a lot of that is now shared on the eBook. You can even click on a map and the setlist from the Queen gigs that Queen have played in that town will appear.

"I was very aware of history, I kept every ticket, every plectrum, and it's been gathering dust in a temperature-controlled storage room. So it was a curious enterprise going back through everything, and remembering what it all represented," said May.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
