Hi, Just curious what mistakes Queen made live. I know a couple of examples like Roger forgetting the words to IILWMC and Brian's guitar cutting out during hammer to fall in 86. anymore?

I'm sure Guitar Hero can tell you several.

Someone has a website about it, don't they?

Oh god, there are too many! I don't list every little one on my website, cuz that'd take forever! Here are a few key ones... I won't copy/paste the reviews here, so just check out these dates at the link below:

Osaka 3-29-76 evening, re: BoRhap
Hartford 8-20-80, re: NIH
Stockholm 4-10-82, re: Save Me

Also, there's Milton Keynes 6-5-82, as I've mentioned before, with Brian's patch cord falling out part way through his guitar solo.

Something else worth mentioning is from Oakland 78... before Love Of My Life, Freddie says, "John and Roger have gone backstage for their blowjobs. We get ours after the show". I died laughing the first time I heard that.

I think Queen's biggest mistake live was including Spike Edney. Just teasing! We've all grown to love ol' Spike.

I do have one Game-era bootleg where Roger stumbles on the words to IILWMC and Freddie takes over. It was surprising, and fantastic, to hear....

Also, doesn't Freddie trip up a bit on the words to It's a Hard Life at Rio?

During the gig in Paris 86 you here some mistakes... One vision has one, Magic too.. I cant remember the rest if there are any....

I really like this concert... I think they really enjoyed playing that evening... They're very alive... I also think Spikey used another synth (or sound) during I want to break free.... I might be wrong....

The audience is SUPERB and you hear that there are many people in good mood.... I think this recording is quite special... Other recordings doesnt really show this that good imo... You can hear the audience very good, and at the same time the recording is almost excellent.... :)

There is a mistake on one of the Milan '84 gigs, where Freddie repeats a line twice by mistake in Radio Ga Ga (I don't have the gig with me, so I can't remember what line it is)

Vocally there are out of pitch notes here and there, specially by Brian (even though he didn`t sing so often as the others), and Rog in `39. Instrumentally I don`t know of many mistakes although by one side I haven`t heard many concerts and the ones I have, certailny not many times


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.

Not exactly a mistake, but John used to enjoy flicking peanuts at Brian during his solos. YAY JOHN! ;)

Freddie forgot the beginning to Tutti Frutti on the Friday night concert at Wembley. And he slapped Roger with a tambourine.

On the WWRY video during the fast version of WWRY right at the beginning, Freddie sings the same verse twice.

There's another mistake during the Tokiyo 1982 show. The mistake is in the guitarsolo in BohRap, just before the harmonics-part, it sounds very weird.

By my account as well. :)

Yeah, it seems that Brian broke a string. For all you musicians, is was the second Bb scale in the solo, and he broke a string as soon as he let go of the full bend on the 18th fret of the high E. I can't tell if that's the string that broke, because the camera focuses on his face, not his guitar. But considering he had trouble on the last notes of the solo, it was probably the B string that broke.

As a guitarist, I know that's one's worst nightmare in a performance, to immediately have to find another string to play the correct notes on. Split second decisions, and the right note isn't always hit.

Ouch. That's really not fun, breaking a string ...

Imagine breaking a piano. Ugh, Freddie would've been pissed.
