For those of you that did not see it yet - the All You Need is Love BBC charity video, with BM, is on.

VERY cheesy version if you ask me...

It's AWFUL.

I understand that the idea of a charity single is to get as many people in on it as possible, but they picked some real stinkers and the production makes it sound like it's being done in a cupboard.  The brass stuff is just EEUUUCH.....

Great to see Nick Mason and Brian in there, and that chick in the hooker boots I guess.  The rest can fucking drown for all I care ....

Nick doing backing vocals? Well... that was worth the four minutes of my life I'll never get back...

I agree: awful version. They could've done it great, but they didn't. Stepford as it may sound, the only brill bit was Brian's solo.



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.

fucking horrific as a cover, just glad Paul McCartney steered well clear .... it would be nice for Brian just for once leave the Queen sound off a solo & play it clean ... that song (1967 original) has one of the worst solo's in recorded history sorry George







But its for charity but truely ghastly

Why should he?  His tone and style are what make him distinctive from every other guitarist of his generation.  It was perfect for the song, and he certainly didn't take over the song.  He delicately left his fingerprint on it, while paying his due to the original with humility.

As far as I'm concerned, it was the only remotely original-sounding part of this version of the song... even if Peter Gabriel, Bill Wyman, and Nick Mason are playing on it.

Yeah, much as I don't want to sound like I'm brown-nosing, I agree - Brian was best in show.  At least he's performing with some character and doing something with a bit of musicality.

I can't believe I watched it again ; I've never heard anyone make brass sound so soulless .....

Nice to see Brian smiling for a change. These days he's as grumpy as Alex Ferguson when the ref doesn't add 15 minutes of injury time. These days, every time I see Brian or read his soapbox I feel like buying him a happy meal or something.

Other than Gabriel, Ferry, Mason, May and Ure I had no clue who any of those people were.  Are they recognizable in the UK? Or am I lame?

The bassist is ex-Stone Bill Wyman.

So what you mean is that I'm just very slightly lame. :)

Note to Bill: sorry! You look nothing like you did when I wasn't looking at you all those years.

Terry Wogan, The Corrs, Adrian Edmondson definitely, and possibly Peter Gabriel?

Definetely I think. I had to look up the charity's website to see who they all were. Loads of them I have no clue about.

The version of the song as a whole is lame. Brian`s bits, chords and solo, and also his smile: THAT made my day for the past couple of days :)

I hope he keeps doing his stuff in the guitar. That is what he is good at. In flesh and bone, 3D or not. Like this, for instance:

Does anybody have any more of this gig?

And precisely how did nature intend for a guy like Brian to play?

I´ve noticed that there are some cameras around, so I think we´ll have some pro shot material soon.
