I just thought about this the other day, Anyone know if Brian can speak different languages? :) Just when they toured wherever it was, at the beginning of the audience participation sections e.g Love of my life etc Brian introduces and speaks to the crowd Just wondered if those bits were rehearsed depending on the language of the area they were touring or whether he could speak the lingo

Try reading 'Queen and I: The Brain May story' If you haven't...it is most likely to say in there.
I think it said he spoke German French and Latin.
Italian? what the????? I don't think so...but I suppose it is possible.

about my language, italian, i'm afraid he only knows a little number of words...prepared for the occasions he went in my country. But maybe spanish was in his studies someway.

Anyway it's a very kind present to the audience talking a bit with another language.Thanks Brian!!

Get a grip. I could recite the chorus to Teo Torriatte but that doesn't mean I can speak Japanese.
Monty Python did an entire episode in German, but none of them spoke it - they just had it translated and learnt it parrot fashion.

SO, Otro Lugar & an appearance on TV does not make Brian a Spaniard.

I have Queen & I and I do not remember reading anywhere that he spoke another language. I could be wrong though.

exactly


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 seem to remember BHM saying that he'd picked up some Spanish when he was living in Tenerife doing astronomy. I guess he also picked up a basic knowledge of German whilst the band were recording in Germany. As for any other languages, I wouldn't be surprised if he had at least a basic command of at least several more!

" "Nimrod das erste wird eingeladen, auf der folgenden Abdeckung unseres eigenen Lieds zu singen"

But..what the heck does he mean??"

its german... and its sad that i CAN'T make it out and im holding a friggin' german dictionary... but i did find this much...

Lied = song
singen (isn't it obvious?)
zu = at/to
eigenen = own
auf = on/upon

so yeah... my dictionary is also from the 1960's... hope someone else can translate it better than i tried, lol!!!



Love me, that's all I ask of you
