ROGER TAYLOR To Re-Release Anti-Murdoch Song!

By on 20 July, 2011


QUEEN band-member Roger Taylor is to re-release a 1994 protest song he wrote about media mogul Rupert Murdoch as the News Corp boss fights to save his embattled empire’s reputation amid the ongoing phone-hacking scandal!


News Corporation has been rocked by the News of the World phone-hacking crisis, leading him to close down the 168-year-old U.K. tabloid earlier this month (10th July 2011).

He was grilled by a British Parliament committee on Tuesday 19th July, 2011 over what he knew about the scandal, and was left shaken after a protester attacked him with a cream pie during the hearing.


Now the 80-year-old has come under fire from drummer Taylor, who is re-releasing his anti-Murdoch anthem Dear Mr. Murdoch, which he wrote back in 1994 for his Happiness? album around the time the mogul was trying to buy U.K. football club (or soccer to my U.S. readers) Manchester United.

The song features the lyrics:

“We’re drowning in nipples and bingo and sex crimes… Dear Mr Murdoch, you’re really the pits, bad news is good business, you’re the king of the t**s.”


The song can now be downloaded from iTunes, for those who are interested!
