“Brian May wrote amazing fuckin’ riffs all throughout Queen’s career. When I first started playing guitar, Jazz had just come out, and this song blew me away. It’s almost completely overlooked too.”

Surprised? I certainly was!

Mentioned before here but yes, it was a surprise, especially since Roger may have composed the riff ! Or even played it?

Very catchy: unfortunately I can't find any tutorials on Youtube to learn how to play it.

If I recall correctly, his myspace page had "Sleeping On The Sidewalk" on his playlist.

It's refreshing to hear an artist praise Brian May beyond "We Will Rock You" or "Tie Your Mother Down."

Was that it? Oh, well how about that. Something from News of the World, whatever.

In Slash's autobiography he mentions Fight From The Inside but that article you posted says More Of That Jazz. I guess he can't make up his mind!

Roger should be really proud that one of rock most popular guitarists was inspired by his riffs, lol.

Bri has some amazing riffs/solos.

You Don't Fool Me.
Ride the Wild Wind
Show Must Go On
Save Me.

WWRY and TYMD maybe the most popular, but the man is talented.

Great King Rat and Night Comes down are my favs.

Oh, and give Slash a break.  He's taken more drugs and drank more alcohol in his life than all of the members here combined.  His brain is a little mushy.
