Hi everyone. Please visit the new version of 'Bechstein Debauchery'. It's really great, except for the guest and studio sections which are a bit raw currently but I'll improve

Thank you

An interesting note...in your analysis of 'Put Out The Fire', you state that Brian sang the lead vocal of 'She was my lover'. I heard that myself a few months ago and was surprised, but just thought that Freddie was singing in a different tone for some reason. Wonder why the band did that.

Also, a wonderful website, Sebastian, even if I don't necessarily agree with some things. Very thoroughly researched - kudos to you!

Lester, just because Sebastian says something, it doesn't mean it's true.

I personally think that's a ridiculous claim that Bri sang that line, and that line only. Of course it's Fred.

Bohardy, I agree that because one person claims it's true, it totally dispells any rumor or speculation. Personally, I believe 'Don't Try So Hard' is John's, and that the only song Freddie ever played guitar on was 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love', and that John, not Brian, played rhythm guitar on a certain song because it doesn't "sound" like The Red Special.

However, after repeated listens to that line from 'Put Out The Fire', it just sounds to me like Brian. I'm probably wrong, and I agree that it's odd that Brian would sing that one line, but you never know.

Some people are still convinced that John sang backing vocals, though.

Very strange. The inflection on the word 'Was' sure does sound like Brian but Freddie becomes obvious shortly after, so if this is true.. then they did a masterful job of blending the vocal. Logic tells me that it's all Freddie, but I do hear some Brianocity there.

Maybe Freddie was trying to sound like Brian and that's the section where it came through best. I dunno.

Capital site Sebastian, 5 Flashy's out of 5.

Oh, by the way, I played the line 'She was my lover' through my Fredometer (patent pending) and it definitely registered, so that's an end to that argument.

>Personally, I believe 'Don't Try So Hard' is John's

Dave Richards, unlike you, was there, so her knows who wrote it

> and that the only song Freddie ever played guitar on was 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love'

John, who was there, unlike you or me, said that all four played guitar in the 'Hot Space' album

> However, after repeated listens to that line from 'Put
Out The Fire', it just sounds to me like Brian.

I agree. Although Brian did say that sometimes Fred sang with Brian's intonation and accent just to please him. Maybe this is one of the cases

An amazing site, tonnes of new info (to me, at least.)

This is one site that I would definitely visit again and again.

Oh, btw, your site says, "Written by Brian and Tim in 1968/1989." for Doin' All Right song analysis. You mean, 1968/1969? (http://sebastian.queenconcerts.com/doing.htm)

Curious...
"Brian (1982): "If I'm honest, I think I would like to be remembered for a few of the songs, none of which were really hits, but some of which had a lot of emotion in them: White Queen and Let Us Cling Together and Long Away off the A Day At The Races album. And We Will Rock You"

So WWRY wasn't a hit then?

Thanks for the 'Doin' All Right' thing, I corrected it and very soon I'll upload some updates. About 'Rockyou' I think he had forgot at that point the "no hits" remark. I think I'll ad a (sic) to that quote

"was" may sound like Brian, but "lover" sounds like Fred

Then perhaps it is the case Brian said that Fred sang with Brian's accent and intonation

So it's official- Bowie came up with Under Pressure's immortal bass line. I was always hoping it was Deacon! Thanks for clearing that up! Wonderful site, my favorite.
