I have one big question:  what was happened to Freddie's voice during the tour (especially European part)? I mean all those rise and falls while the tour progressed.
What was the main cause of this?  Especially I don't believe that this was caused only by smoking, age, etc.
Would be great to hear the answer from professional singers!

Thanks in advance, Greg.

Every time I think about the works tour, is the shitty sounds for AOBTD. But love hearing stone cold, and great king rat being played.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Works tour was the first to have the "improvisation" segment.   Maybe a discussion about how it evolved over the tour?

Also I remember reading in the Queen Works book that on the first night in NZ Fred and the guy from Spandau Ballet got really drunk and they screwed up the rock and roll medley by singing the wrong songs.  I"d love to hear a clip of that if you have it in your archives.

Thanks!

Those are excellent questions! Your names will be credited during the debate and when it goes on Youtube, Queenzone (and the users), will get a shout out!

User "CosmosTales" should check his email! I just sent him a message!

Hmmm, his email's screwed up or something, but here's the message I sent!

Dang, I've got plans to go to a Star Trek convention instead. 

Besides, that sounds a little odd...

Must be another theme for discussion: what songs worked best musically in this tour, and what songs simply don't so much.  Also would be likely to hear thoughts about the songs from other tours that were dropped but must be kept in The Works Tour for a beauty show.

Thanks in advance.

I'll answer that in detail during the debate, but what I can say is that "Vagina" has six letters, and "Cunt" has four letters. That's a difference!

When the debate gets uploaded, be sure you grab some new ears--we played tons of "great" versions of It's A Hard Life, Bo Rhap, etc!
