It's dedicated to their ex-manager, who was cheating the band out of money for awhile.

I think the bit that was bleeped out was in "we call him mother-fucker"...does that sound right? I've heard that intro to the song before.

Yes, he probably would. Didn't he sue them? But he couldn't prove anything, because it was just "Dedicated to...".

Yes, it was about their management company, whom they claimed did not do enough to promote "Sheer Heart Attack."

It's about Norman Sheffield.

And the bleeped out words are:

"This next song is from A Night at the Opera. This about real motherfucker of a gentleman, we call him motherfucker, You know what motherfucker means?
I'm sure you have a word for it. We call him, we also call him Death on two Legs"


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."

I think the concert it was taken from was a show from 1979 in Barcelona

That's exactly the one I was thinking of Niek - well done for doing it so much better than me!

Yes. Norman Sheffield. I got this thingee from Queenwords.com.

According to the QMS, this song is most likely dedicated to Norman Sheffield, one of Queen's ex-managers who (allegedly) cheated them out of a lot of royalty money.

Yes, again. On the Live Killers CD the words bleeped out are "A Real Mother Fucker of A Gentleman".

I only have it on Live Killers. I don't know about any other album.

Being quite new on the forum, dear Loveslostt, you might not have got the point. The song isn't about AIDS, this is only a (very successful) joke on the site, I hope you noticed it and you didn't mislead your boss... Btw, are you a Queen fan too? Just curious...


I LOVE QUEEN!

Rien's website is www.mercuryparadise.com, but I don't think the MP3 is still up.

thanks for the tip. queen has grown on me since i have shared an office with my boss. i am not too fond of the songs they overplay on the radio but most of the songs are pretty cool. its funny how you hear songs all the time, and then youre like "queen did this?? and this?? and this???" they have quite the extensive song library. anyway...thanks for your help,
