I just got home form work and Live @ Wembley is on VH1 (I know, Queen getting air in the US, I'm amazed too). I'm definately not as knowledgeable as some here but during "Hammer to Fall"< who is the guy playing rhythm guitar while Brian solos? He is on the piano during CLTCL as well, and doesn't look like Spike Edney to me. He's wearing a hot pink tank top, suspenders and is right behind Brian when he solos. Is that Spike?

Thanks!

Yes, Spike.



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.

I know Sebastian already said but if you want to be perfectly sure, it is indeed, Spike. Very good question.

In addition to the post, some great backing vocals from Spike can be heard in "tear it up"... the longest  "oh yeaaaaaaahh" near the end belong to him!..




Queen rocks!

I have watched this probably hundreds of times and I never noticed him once wearing suspenders...

Hot pink tank top and suspenders?  Of course it's Spike, who else could get away with wearing that?  It was how I was pick him out of the crowd when I saved his life in 'Nam.

You're probably joking, but I think suspenders == braces in "real" English
