Timbale Posted September 10, 2022 Share Posted September 10, 2022 AP - September 10, 2022 Although it has been touch and go with Her Majesty's health for the last year or so, Buckingham palace announced in a statement that the Queen and her family were comforted that she lived long enough to see the 40th Anniversary release of Moving Pictures. With the band delaying the release a year past its actual anniversary, there were rumours that the royal family were feeling stress that the band would not get the box set out in time. It has been long known that Moving Pictures is the Queen's favourite Rush record by some margin. Known for her cheeky sense of humour, Her Majesty would often pull the vinyl out in front of visiting dignitaries, point to the cover sleeve and say, "Look - the photo is taken at ME Park!" The newly crowned King Charles III, off the record, stated after his mother's passing, "It is a bloody shame that the band could not pull it together to get the damn Signals box set out on its proper anniversary - she would have had something to look forward to, and it may have just made her hold on through the fall." The new King made this comment, despite the fact that is well known that the Queen was not the biggest fan of the so called synth era, and preferred the classic, 3-piece approach. We hope her joy at receiving the deluxe Moving Pictures box set kept her vital signs up, if only for a little while longer. 3 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
