I know this topic has been done to death, but I've been looking everywhere and I can't find anything! Approximately how wide is Roger's vocal range?

as far as recording goes, from A1 to E4


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

where is that A1?


and btw, since theres still confusion about the octave numbers. A1 is the open A string on a guitar?

A1 - Ride The Wild Wind demo. I think also he does it in the low voice of Drowse, although it's very very very weak. The one in RTWW seems to be much more powerful (though I haven't listened to it)

The low octave-harmony in "Action This Day" reaches D1 at 0:44 ("...show DO-own"). Is it Roger?

the low voice is Freddie, but i doubt it's natural (i think the did the same trick with Leroy Brown) Cause it's not weak

He's got a good vocal range in 'More Of That Jazz' and 'Rock it'. Don't forget the high-ptched galileo's in BR. I don't think it's particularly good in IILWMC though.

The Galileos are falsetto, but I think Roger or Fred could have done them with head voices if they wanted to

in the takes brian showed in the documentary that's only fred, you can clearly hear it's him. in the album version he was replaced by roger

no way brian could do an a4

no he doesn't, even though he says that's the three of them no way it's like that. in fact roger isn't there either, it's just a double or triple tracked freddie

roger did sing it in the album version but what brian showed was an outtake, still he wasn't there

highest note brian did on recordings was an F4.

"Brian showed an outtake"

Not true. Brian used the original mastertape for the "Inside The Rhapsody" docu - so he just muted some channels to show stuff which would be buried in the mix normally.

oh really?

is he god or anything?

brian said masterstroke was recorded in wessex, and mentioned its story as part of "secrets from a night at the opera and a day at the races"

brian said in 1983 that he played koto in 'teo torriate'

brian said in 1998 that he didn't believe fred ever sang silver salmon

he can be wrong, while the tapes are not, either the voices are the three of them or they're not, that's even more simple

and yes he did show outtakes, because he showed the piano of the "is this the real life... reality" part, which, as he said, was taken out

he also showed fred singing the high galileos

in fact he did say that some of the takes he was showing went into the final mix, and some of them didn't
