I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Queen And Robbie Williams Duet
9 April 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

The remaining members of Queen: Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon have teamed up with Robbie Williams in the last two weeks to record a new version of We Are The Champions (originally released in 1977). It will appear on the soundtrack for A Knight's Tale, but will not be released as a single.

A Knight's Tale will be released in the USA on 11 May, starring Heath Ledger as a medieval peasant who takes over a knight's identity and takes up jousting.

Queen previously recorded with 5ive on a cover of We Will Rock You which went to Number One in the UK charts.
