I assume you mean Brian with his Flying V-guitar? Don't know which songs, but I believe he played on it during the Paris 1982 show.

if i remember correctly, it was his backup after the birch was smashed, and before he had the guilds. So the would mean he used it between 82 and 84.

I think his backup instruments went in this order, fist he used strat, then les paul, then birch, then guilds, then fryers, now guytons.

i THINK! so if anyone can correct any of that, please do.

I don't know about live, but didn't he play a flying V in the Princes of the Universe video?

Indeed it was a spare, used from US Hot Space tour until Tokyo '85. From Live Aid onwards he started using Guild.

The one in 'Princes' video is a Washburn, not a Gibson.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

There are pictures of Brian with the Gibson Flying V in Oakland 82. Also, he most likely played it in East Rutherford 82 (during Body Language), as he broke a string on both his Red Special and the John Birch copy during his Brighton Rock solo.

That is not true, Brian used the Guild's from the beginning of 'The Works' tour. He can be seen using a prototype at the Golden Rose festival and can also be seen with a production model at Rock in Rio during Now Im Here.
