The new 100-strong musicians' letter on behalf of the still-jailed Pussy Riot members Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is a wholly good thing. And it is.

Queen have overtaken The Beatles to become the official UK album chart leaders. They have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. We Are the Champions remains their most played song of all time, familiar to sports fans everywhere. They are bigger today than they were during Freddie's lifetime. No fat lady on the horizon. Not any time soon.
