Wonderful to hear Freddie’s voice again on a ‘new’ Queen song. Although I’m disappointed that there are only three ‘new’ tracks on the new Album, Queen Forever, it still remains a thrill to hear their songs for the first time. This one was originally recorded during work on The Works but didn’t make the cut and so wasn’t finished. In the end Anita Dobson, Brian May’s wife, recorded it instead. For the new album Queen returned to it and finished it, and hearing it now I have to wonder why it wasn’t chosen in the first place. Fantastic!
Queen were back playing live the other day in Kiev with Adam Lambert. Not had a chance to watch it yet, but the whole concert is on Youtube:
The Queen Extravaganza version of Somebody to Love from American Idol. Have to confess I thoroughly loved it – great effort for a first performance live.
Parenting done right!
Say It’s Not True – the Queen single live:
Just been sent these clips from the Queen + Paul Rodgers concert at Hyde Park in 2005 just after the bomb attacks in London. I was lucky enough to be their. Wonderful night!
Awesome guitar playing by Jeff Beck in this live collaboration with Roger Taylor from Queen posted on Youtube by the Official Queen Channel:
Happy 65th birthday…
Two videos to enjoy over lunch – will Freddie overcome Christopher Lambert in their clash on the set of Highlander? Will Flash save the world before the day is out?! I don’t know, but I’m sure they’ll try…
Been around a few months now, but still makes me chuckle when I think of it. I defy you not to smile!
