I found this on Blue Man Group's site while looking for Queen influenced bands on google:

"In 1978, the members of Queen attended one of Blue Man Group’s first performances with piano smashers. For the performance, the Blue Men lined up 10 pianos and then proceeded to smash, pound and jump on them for 40 minutes straight. This early experiment was considered to be only partly successful since the Blue Men had not yet mastered the technique of tuning many strings all to the same note, but it was good enough to inspire Queen to create the beat for “We Will Rock You” by stomping on a piano and clapping their hands"


uhhh...wasn't We Will Rock You released in 1977?

We Will Rock You's from '77, so either the date is off, or the fact is untrue.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Lol, you have to read the whole thing, it's great. It's like a mock-bio of the group's influence on past rock music. It's not real, it's humor. I like it, but it's way too long and I'm not going to read it all.


Creativity can always cover for a lack of knowledge.
