Hi did anyone listen to Bad News the band 'The Young Ones' formed and they sung Bohemian Rhapsody. I would have loved to have heard it.
I was trying to think who was who
I think Nigel Planer was John
Adrian Edmondson was Roger
Christopher Ryan was Freddie
and Rik Mayall was Brian
Was it hilarious even Brian produced it
That was the worst decision Brian ever made!


I'm just a musical prostitute my dear!

They werent playing 'Queen' they were a spoof rock band with thier own names. Worst decision Brian ever made???? I think I read somewhere that John did backing vocals on the opera section!

Clips of their version of Bo Rhap have appeared on various UK documentaries - but i've never heard it in full.

And there was me thinking you'd posted this because it's about to be re-released on cd. Along with some bonus tracks. It was reported on Brian's site, but I can't seem to find it yet.

"Worst decision Brian ever made????"

No way, Bad News is great. I think it's even funnier then Spinal Tap.
Brian produced their stuff

Nice one, Fried. I loved it ever since my bro showed me the comic strip on video. Classic from there on. "One bloody sausage"

Peace,

It was very much fun when it was released! :))
I loved it. Still do actually. And they were not being Brian Roger Freddie and John, it's an act! The band was called Bad News. It were indeed the same persons who did The Young Ones, but that's got nothing to do with this particular bit.
I didn't know it was going to be released on cd? Could have spared me the trouble burning a cd from my LP or EP or whatever it's called.

Bad News is kinda like Spinal Tap...
...just that Bad News is not funny.

I seriously think that William Hung could do a better version of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

Yeah, with that William Hung comment, it does make you wonder if the person 'gets it.'

Peace,
