I have it. It has some nice bits, but generally it's crap IMO. For example, the extra guitar bit in IWIA, just before the fast part - originally this wasn't in the video due to the fact that it got edited out of the single version. As the Rocks version of IWIA DID have that particular bit, for some reason DoRo pasted some Wembley segments in there... I doubt there weren't any outtakes or something from the IWIA, which would've actually fitted in with the rest of the video.

Besides that, there is just the usual crap. Tokyo 1982 performance of Put Out The Fire with (how original) flames pasted on top of the live-bits. The Making of NOBY is not really interesting, just some backstage interviews with Brian and Roger about the song and the video.

One things that escapes all videographies I've seen so far is that (besides the UK and Japanese versions) there was a unique German issue of the Queen Rocks-vid with a RTL II-logo on the spine. The video-release was promoted relatively heavily over there, the highlight being an hour long TV special on RTL II (also, when the album was released the year before there was one on VIVA and around the time of the RTL II-one there also was one on VIVA II which was very interesting, as it also focussed on their solo-careers, showing lots of Cyberbarn-footage), featuring lots of Bri- and Rog-interviews and focussing on the contents of the vid and the history behind its songs. Needless to say all these specials were produced by DoRo, but for some reason they were rather good...


I have the one which says RTL 2 on the spine. Am I rich now?
