Call me slow for not seeing this before, but did anyone notice on staying power(GVHII) John is seen playing a telecaster 6 string guitar...i guess for the twangy funky choppy parts of the song. Hmmm, i wonder if he ever played regular guitar on any other queen songs live?

It was kind of odd to see him and brian both playing electric guitars together on stage simultaneously! This was because the bass was synthesized. Cool!

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Yep, pretty cool. He still acts like a bass playter, though :)

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.

Actually I, like many Queen fans, noticed this all those years ago when it was first shown on Channel 4's The Tube. Still, this song is far better live than the studio cut.
