Nope, just in Staying Power I think,

But he did play on a number of songs in the studio

He also played the electric guitar...you can hear on the 'How do you think I'm gonna getta along' ... stanza?

And the piano too.

And the drums.

And he sang the song.

Well..not really but he should've.

Makies sense really - John plays a much much funkier rhythm guitar than Brian, who appears to have the complex rhythmical qualities of my front lawn.

And before you all jump on me, I'm only talking about the difference in ability in rhythm guitar. I understand that Mr May is quite well known for being a startlingly good soloist, once upon a time.

You say most, but there are a fair few of us who think the kidney version can't be beaten.

As a matter of fact Brian`s sense of rhythm is not extremely well developed. I like his funky rhythm in `Brighton Rock` though, for me that`s his best show-off as a rhythm guitarist. Roger referred to John in 1985 as "the best rhythm guitarist" in a Japanese magazine and pointed that he had played in some songs in `Strange Frontier`. I`d love to know which ones were...


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.

That's the second time you've jumped to Dr Bri's defence when I have suggested he may be somewhat less than perfect...these are my opinions...you obviously have your sycophantic ones.

<<...a kind of magic...>>

Very well done. Subconciously putting a Queen song in there. heh :)

John was originally a guitarist, correct? So I would imagine he'd keep some of the fundamental techniques of electric guitar playing. Plus his hair gave him special powers all the time, so there!

Staying Power - it's about Brian never cutting his lox o' strength.

Ofcourse it is. Try and analyse the lyrics



See what i've got, i got a hell of a lot

(Brian saying he has lots of hair)

Tell me what you feel, is it real is it real

(Brian asking someone how his hair feels. And then the other person thinks it feels so soft, it just has to be a wig: is it real?)

I know he played the acoustic solo on "who needs you" which surprised me cause he is actually a good soloist!

Don't know about you but I think "Staying Power" live sounded better than the studio version.
