Two lnks about the convention http://www.brianmayworld.com/Convention01.htm http://www.brianmay.com/queen/convention2001/gregbrooks.html
Greg brought a number of tracks to play - this was all he had time for and he
answered questions from the floor in-between.
Tracks Listing and Comments - by
Nevermore - alternative version with Freddie on vocal, a little heavier at the
end - paired with
2 White Queen (As It Began) - alternative version, probably
demo, with Freddie on vocal - both tracks from BBC 4th session Apr 74
Much Love Will Kill You - Mountain Studios 1988. Freddie vocal, piano/synth
strings - extended guitar solo plus still more new guitar at end.
Kashoggi's Ship/Party - Mountain Studios Nov 1988 - 3 or 4 different vocals on
the mix to give a flavour of different versions available. Some lyrics
The Wild Wind Instrumental - Very heavy drums with quite a different beat to
original. This is Roger ONLY singing as original guide vocal. Great
Headlong 1990 alternative version. This was Brian's guide vocal (with bass and
drums) during Innuendo sessions.
Invisible Man - Roger sang vocal as a guide.
Kashoggi's Ship/Party - Freddie's guide vocal Olympic Studios.
Manmade Paradise - 50 second Queen version!!!!
It Alone - Miracle sessions - 10 minutes long, unfinished and in 3 bits.
Previously unheard. Freddie's vocal is breathtaking - not a dry eye in the
house!!!!! Heartfelt wailing guitar.
Breakthu - alt version 1988
Like - rough early demo by Queen with Freddie on ad hoc vocals (became Under
Pressure) with David Bowie on piano. Very different piano and music.
to Questions from fans to GREG - by Freddie van ter Beek
BCC tracks will be in the Queen box
- 1st Queen box expected at end of NEXT
year, format yet unknown
- Man Made Paradise, there is a Queen version, will
be in the box, the demo's for Freddie solo album are not very different though,
that's why the track did not appear in the Freddie box.
- DVD's or CD-ROM
*will* be used in the box, format unknown yet, some interactive thing it will
- Greg is almost sure that after the Queen boxes, a LIVE box will be
- Michael Jackson tracks: Greg is positive that the tracks will
eventually appear on a CD in some form, there is 1 track in the Queen archives:
VICTORY, but they aren't allowed yet to release it! the track has all the queen
boys singing backing vocals!
- Greg's idea about the box format: 3 boxes,
each having 3-6 CD's. THIS IS GREG'S OPINION, NO DESCISION HAS BEEN MADE YET!!!!
with 2 DVD's included, the amount could be up to 8 CD's per box.
selection of tracks will be released in the box as instrumentals, like with the
- The Queen archive has 4000 tapes!!! 3/4 is safety copies or
- MOTHER LOVE, numerous versions with Roger and Brian
- alternate versions of "These are the Days of Our Lives"
exist, but all slightly diff though
- Fast WWRY, no other version than the
BBC version exists
- After the Queen boxes, Greg will almost surely be asked
to log the archived tapes of Roger and Brian, if any boxes of these guys will be
made is still unsure...
- The QUEEN LIVE book took 5 years to make, it was
not intended as a book first, only research, 80% is accurate, if Greg would
release the book now, it would be much more accurate!
Sorry for my english! :(
