I was thumbing through my collection of cover versions of Queen songs and noticed I have a lot of covers from the Sheer Heart Attack album.

Killer Queen - Travis
Killer Queen - Sum 41
Tenement Funster - Dream Theatre
Flick Of The Wrist - Dream Theatre
Lily Of The Valley - Dream Theatre
Now I'm Here - Def Leppard & Brian May
Stone Cold Crazy - Metallica
Stone Cold Crazy - Eleven & Joshua Homme
Dear Friends - Def Leppard
Dear Friends - Valensia
Misfire - Neko Case And Her Boyfriends

All I'd need to have the entire album in cover form would be:

Brighton Rock
In The Lap Of The Gods
Bring Back That Leroy Brown
She Makes Me (Stormtrooper In Stilettos)
In The Lap Of the Gods...Revisited

I've found a websites which list cover versions of Queen songs, but I'm not sure they're complete. For instance, I know that "Brighton Rock" highlighted a few years ago by a guitar magazine, where they teach you how to play the song. Silly me, I didn't by the magazine at the time, so I missed out on that version, which is the only instance I now know of the song getting a cover. If anyone has this version, I'd gladly take it off your hands.

Brighton Rock: The Fastback (live version on 1990 album BikeToy Clock Gift)
In The Lap Of The Gods: No official releases, but you can find a great version on acoustic guitar by a guy named Troubleclef on YouTube
Bring Back That Leroy Brown: Sung in Basque by Egan. Titled as Itzuli Leroy Brown (on 1992 LP/CD Egan Queen Omenduz)
She Makes Me: Taste Of Cindy (on a Queen covers compilation album from the '90s titled The Queen Is Dead)
In The Lap Of the Gods...Revisited: Sung in German by Circus Ripper. Titled as Im Land Der Gotter (Also on The Queen Is Dead)

Hope this helps

The guitar tutural of Brighton Rock appeared on issue no. 17 of Total Guitar, April 1996. Just a very short part of the solo was played. Also fragments of the solo's and backing tracks of Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Tie Your Mother Down, WWRY, Hammer To Fall, WWTLF, I want it all, Heaven For Everyone and AKOM

Thanks for the useful replys. I've actually been looking for the Fastbacks' live BR cover since I made my original post (no luck so far).

I'm sure there was a more recent guitar tutorial. I remember maybe 5 years ago standing in the now-(sadly)-gone Sam The Record Man in Toronto looking at the magazine (with CD) advertising "Brighton Rock,' and I'm sure I saw some postings about it on Queen sites at the time. Still, the Total Guitar version would do me fine in light of it being a rarely-covered Queen song. Any idea where and how I can get this?

It would be sweet if some band did a cover it (Def Leppard...Dream Theatre...anyone...?). I have more covers of "Rhapsody" and WWRY than I care to count, only a few are decent (I like The Braids BR cover, particularly).

Also, I download from here the Crossed Hearts cover of "She Makes Me," which is pretty faithful to the original and has good production value (good work, there!).

Many Queen tribute bands played (parts) of the Brighton Rock giutar solo. British Queen cover band GAGA recorded a 12 minute (Live Killers) version. Can be found on their album Live At The Queen Party Waalre "97 and another version on Serious Queen Tour '96. I don't know if that's also the full length version

You can keep your money in your pocket. Bruce Springsteen never played Now I'm Here.
