I came across this on You Tube today, claiming to be a demo of Dragon Attack. However I can't see any connection to the original and it doesn't seem to match the description given.

So does anyone know for sure if it is a demo of Dragon Attack or is it something else.

Thanks!

It doesn't sound like "Dragon Attack", it's more or less some studio improvisation. But sometimes those sessions lead to some riff, that may become the basis for a song. 

One of the most interesting improvisations I have heard so far is the guitar solo from the Houston 77 concert. It has a part, where you can detect within one minute the embryonic riffs for some songs they did in the 80s. "Put out the Fire",  "Hammer to fall" and "Kashoggis Ship" - really amazing.

I guess the only way we will know is if anyone was at this convention and heard what GB said about it. Anyone?

I was listening to an interview with Brian the other day regarding dragon attack (i think it was the in the studio with redbeard) and he said that it was basically a jam session that he cut up and compiled as a song and added the vocals later so there wouldn't really be a demo per se.

It sounds really un-Queenlike.

Maybe a fan trying to pose off his stuff as a Queen demo.

Listen to the lick at the very end. That's definately not Brian. The vibrato, the sound, even the lick is totally un-Brian.

Fake
