Most of you will probably know the rules of the Kevin Bacon game, but if you don't this is how it works.
It's based on the theory that every single person in the world is seperated by no more than six degrees of seperation and for some unknown reaon you can link almost any celebrity to the actor Kevin Bacon in six moves or less.
For example: Dot Cotton from Eastenders to Kevin Bacon in 4 moves.
The actress who plays Dot Cotton is called June Brown and starred alongside Mike Reid who played Frank Butcher. Mike Reid starred as Doug the Head in Snatch alongside Brad Pitt, who starred in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon.

or Floella Benjamin to Kevin Bacon in 5 moves.
Floella Benjamin used to present the kids TV programme Play Away, as did Jeremy Irons, who starred in Die Hard With A Vengeance with Bruce Willis which also starred Samuel L Jackson who starred in Jackie Brown with Robert DeNiro who also starred in Sleepers alongside Kevin Bacon.

So the idea is to link the four members of Queen to Kevin Bacon in no more than six moves. To make things a little more interesting though, you can't link them through Queen. It has to be solo stuff.

The person who can do it with the least amount of moves wins a prize....let's say the chance to Kick Charles Baer squarely in the plums or something.

fatty.

Brian is now spending all his time doing "We Will Rock You" musical (instead of doing anything constructive)- Robert De Niro is a part of this project and- as mentioned- he played alongside Kevin Bacon...

PS
Can I kick him...?

Brian May contributed to the soundtrack to Mission Impossible 2 with Tom Cruise, who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon. 2 Moves.

Freddie contributed Love Kills to the Giorgio Moroder's Metropolis Soundtrack. Moroder also did songs for Top Gun, which featured Tom Cruise, who, as luck would have it, co-starred with Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men. 3 Moves.

Roger covered Racing in the Streets, a Bruce Sprinsteen song. Bruce contributed the song, Streets of Philadelphia to the movie Philadelphia, starring Tom Hanks. Hanks co-starred in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon. 3 Moves.

Can't top YV's Deacon connection, though
