Being a bassist I can appreciatte what John did

Intro to Millionaire Waltz is good
The whole of the Show Must On is great bass playing
Jealousy is good from a playing point of view
Under Pressure is one of the best bass lines ever written
The Miracle is a great bass part to play


back off with your Megaton

Slightly Mad


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'm a bass player too! I like to hear and play:

"A kind of magic"
"Another one bites the dust"
"Rain must fall"
"Too much love will kill you"
"Don't try suicide"
"Crazy litle thing called love"

And so many more!

All the best!

I always loved the ascending bass line in 'Liar', personally.

The bass parts for Crazy Little Thing, '39 (though is on acoustic bass) and Leroy Brown are amazing.

I'd put them at the top of my list.

Dragon Attack
Now I'm Here
A Kind Of Magic


And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

An underrated bass song is You're My Best Friend. Brilliance.

I've got an idea. Let's all name every single Queen song that John may or may not have played bass on, because - hey - every song is bound to be mentioned!

Let the games begin.
