    They made a musical about Queen, that was based on a video game, about Queen, and from what I gather, that didn't epicly fail. And Mama-Mia is a smash hit, so Green Day the Musical sounds feesable, a friend and I are writing James Bond the Musical, I'll post it in here somewhere as soon as its finnished. I was more shocked by this Jerry Springer the Musical also looks to be intersted. Last year there was a musical about former prime minster Paul Keeting. And not to forget "Shane Warne the Musical" its no suprise. Mama-Mia has the line "Shes a dancing queen" about 4 times "Descreteley" mentioned just before they burst out into song. So maybe we will see, "I'm walking a very lonely road, full of distroyed ideas..... It's A boulovard of broken dreams!"

    Well, the movie wasn't any good, but Tommy (1975) was written as a rock opera. So was Quadrophenia, but not with as much fanfare. American Idiot is in the same genre.

    I heard about this the other day, thought about it for about five minutes and decided it's a great idea. Of course, it'll probably be screwed up in production, but the _idea_ is great! American Idiot is one of the few modern albums that's actually an album, as in a body of work, a collection of songs that aren't just randomly slapped on a disc but relate to each other, and progress from beginning to end. The Wall worked pretty well, I'm hoping this will be the same thing for a new generation. Of course, it'll probably just end up being another jukebox musical, but I'm holding out hope.

    I heard about this from some riggers who were speculating on how it would be done.

    How can anyone honestly expect that will be good if it's not a comedy!
