Does anyone have an overview over which songs was sung by different members of the band on different versions(both concerts and demos)?

For instance:
'39 - both Brian and Freddie(live)
Modern times rock'n'roll - both Roger and Freddie
Heaven for everyone - Roger and Freddie
TMLWKY - Brian and Freddie
..and so on

Roger once forgot the words to I'm in Love With My Car in Glasgow. Freddie took over the vocals. Although the whole thing sounds very shambolic.


Guess who's back?

Rock It - according to Mack they did both versions (Fred & Rog) and then, since John voted for Roger`s and Brian voted for Freddie`s, they took the compromise of putting Fred`s intro and Roger`s rest

Sheer Heart Attack - Rog sung the demo


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.

Probably those are guide vocals, early demos with guidance melody for Fred... But again- I haven't actually heard them... Ask Man On The Prowl...:)

If Brian had sung Dreamer`s Ball it`d be my second favourite Queen song. I think it still is anyway :)

As for the list, Roger and Brian sang many songs in their solo concerts. From the top off my head, Roger sung his two songs of Innuendo, plus Radio Ga Ga, A Kind Of Magic, Rock It (intro), Show Must Go On & I Want To Break Free. Brian sung Headlong, Tear It Up, Now I`m Here (very beautifully), Fat Bots, I Want It All, Love Of My Life, Show Must Go On, Hammer To Fall (during BTTL tour he did a wonderful version, I prefer it over the Queen one; in AW tour he did a horrible slow/fast thing)

That`s what I meant with "the songs he wrote for Innuendo"
