People still love Queen: 15 min fact

They do.

Virgin Media have come up with a way of advertising their ‘Vintage TV’ channel: ask people what ‘music legend’ they would like to spend fifteen minutes with, and the winner was Queen. However, the full top ten is interesting because Oasis are the only young band on it, and they became irrelevant years ago, so on the plus side it wasn’t full of people saying they’d like fifteen minutes of contact time with Rihanna, and also on the plus side raised the touching image of Joy Division fans speaking with their sadly deceased idol. (Not that the same isn't true about Mr. Mercury, we just imagine JD fans being more intense.)

We imagine Don McLean makes it to number nine just so people can ask him what the fuck American Pie is actually about.
