Queen's Big 40th Anniversary (Top Story)

Queen's Big 40th Anniversary was a top story in November. Here it is again as we recap 2010: (Gibson) After almost 40 years with EMI, rock legends Queen have signed a deal with Universal Music Group, according to Reuters. Re-releases of the band's studio albums have been announced for 2011, which also marks Queen's 40th anniversary. "We are very excited, after all this time, to be embarking on a new phase of our career with a new record company, with new ideas and new dreams," Queen guitarist Brian May said in a statement.

The switch from EMI to Universal has been rumored since May but was only recently confirmed. This marks another high-profile loss for EMI, who have parted ways with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Radiohead in recent years.

Starting in 2011, Queen albums will appear on Universal subsidiary Island Records. Reportedly, the label will release each of the band's 15 studio albums with bonus content and remastered sound. In March, the first five re-releases Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races will hit stores and online retailers. - more on this story
