Queen's Brian May tells the BBC that the members of Queen haven't gotten as much from the "Bohemian Rhapsody" movie as you might expect.  In fact, it's a lot less.  Brian May claims that Queen still hasn't been paid .  Not "a penny."  Not yet anyway.  It seems there's a long list of people who get paid off the top of the box office receipts before Queen does.  I'm sure their checks are coming.  Someday.

It's not all bad news though, Queen is currently enjoying a big bump in music sales due to interest generated by the film.  Those checks come faster.
