I remember hearing a while back that there was/is a recording of a Bob Marley soundcheck from Madison Square Garden, I believe, where he plays a bit of AOBTD.  Has anyone here heard about that or has heard the actual recording?

I believe it was Queen playing MSG, Bob Marley was there for soundcheck, and John started playing Lively you (me?) up.

Chris Taylor (Queen band assistant): “Deaky and myself were the only two reggae lovers in the outfit, and Bob Marley turned up to see our show at Madison Square Gardens. Strange choice of show for Bob, but he loved “Another one bites the dust”, and he happened to be in New York on a stopover on his way to Germany for laser treatment. Show time and our intro tape was playing, and someone told John Deacon that Bob was in the audience, so he cranked his bass up and played "Lively up yourself" over the tape. This was very possibly the last time Marley ever heard this played as he died shortly after. I didn't get to meet him, but I did get to meet Tyrone Downie, Bobs keyboard player in the Wailers, and Tyrone and myself got up to all sorts of mischief that night”.
