Freddie bit a dove's head off during the filming of the video for "Save Me" and had to be taken to hospital for an avian flu vaccine. He later claimed that he thought it was a toy bird that had been thrown onto the set by a member of the crew.

Before John Deacon joined the band in 1971, Queen auditioned several hopeful bass players. One of whom was none other than Peter Suthcliffe who went on to find fame as The Yorkshire Ripper.

It was at Elton John's 39th birthday party that Brian May complained of stomach pains and had to be rushed to hospital. Having pumped his stomach, doctors were horrified to discover over 8 gallons of semen from no fewer than 24 different men.

Roger Taylor was killed in a car crash in 1974 and replaced with a look-a-like. Although officially denied by both the band and their record company, there are a number of subtle clues which hint towards the truth in song lyrics, most notably "I'm In Love With My Car", "Ride The Wild Wind" and the as yet unreleased "Roger Taylor Died In A Car Crash. You can also find clues on the album covers of "Sheer Heart Attack" in which Roger is sprawled on the floor looking like a corpse, "News Of The World" in which Roger is covered in blood and "The Miracle" in which Roger's face has been smashed beyond recognition.

If you play "Hot Space" and watch "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" at the same time, you will notice that the songs seem to be in perfect sync with what is happening on screen. For example when Freddie sings "Got a fire down below" from Staying Power we see a race car with flames coming from beneath the drivers seat. In Body Language just as Freddie sings "You got the cutest little ass I ever seen" we see Truly Scrumptious bending over to retrieve a cake from a picnic basket. And The line "You really get in the groove" from Cool Cat is sung just as Dick Van Dyke is giving that guy who played Goldfinger a rim job.

Although Freddie had AIDS, his actual cause of death was recorded as having choked on a ham sandwich.

The sax solo on "One Year Of Love" was played by none other than Blockbusters host Bob Holness.

In 1969, police raided a party in Kensington acting on a tip off that drugs were present. An officer who was searching an upstairs bedroom found Freddie Mercury and the Scottish singer Lulu under a blanket performing a sex act involving a Curly Wurly.

The Queen song "Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon" has been blamed on a number of suicides and it is now illegal for radio stations to play it.

One of the most common myths concerning Queen is that during the launch party for "Jazz", dwarves distributed cocaine from silver bowls to the guests. The simple truth is that to be considered a dwarf, the person has to be below four foot, nine inches. The waiter was in fact five foot, one which just made him rather short.

Wow, I seriously believed EVERYTHING up to the point where you said Roger Taylor was killed in 1974 and replaced with a look-alike. XD

so you took all the most famous rock and roll history urban legends and just replaced names and situations with Queen members?

Entertaining to be sure....over creative?...maybe not.
