Hi there,

I wondered... what you you think is Brian's best piece/part of guitar solo in a song??

I like his solo part in Delilah very much!!

I quite like his acoustic bits in "39". The guitar solo in "Cyborg" is something to be proud of.

I do not like most of his solos that extend over a minute and a half, and the Back Chat solo had no place in the song.

I wish he'd played acoustic more often. He sounded gorgeous on it.

Bohemian Rhapsody,Brighton Rock and Invisible man.

The whole acoustic thing never suited Brian,he once said.

Dead on Time, Flick of the Wrist and You Don't Fool Me! All are wonderful!
But my personal favorite is It's A Hard Life. Very expressive solo.

Not sure if it counts, but I personally smile a little bit when I hear Brian's allusion to the 'Day Tripper' riff in his version of 'Rollin' Over'.

I love more his solo career, and the guitars of The Dark, Resurrection and Business are just stunning

concerning Queen, my favourite solo is the one of 'Days Of Our Lives'


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.

I like Put Out The Fire's solo, because of it's out-of-control feel... Brian should've been drunk more often while doing solos for rock tracks :P
