OK, so I'm a noob, let's get that out the way. I'm also over 40, so don't want no shit from you youngsters - lol!

This has probably been asked a million times before, but what's your Top 5 Brian solos? These can be with Queen or solo, live or studio, but official releases only, and you can't include Brighton Rock, as that's too obvious! Here's mine (but they will probably change soon):-

1. Too Much Love Will Kill You (Live version on the Resurrection CD Single)
2. Hammer To Fall (Headbangers Mix)
3. Save Me (Studio)
4. Somebody To Love (Studio)
5. Dragon Attack (Studio)

March of the Black Queen

Hammer to Fall

Death on Two Legs

Brighton Rock(studio and Live Killers)

Bohemian Rhapsody




In BoRhap and MOTBQ, the solos are integrated into the song more as opposed to just being solos. That may disqualify from being listed as such, but I think being so song-supportive is what part of what makes them good.

5. You're My Best Friend.
4. Sleeping on the Sidewalk
3. Keep Yourself Alive
2. Now I'm Here.
1. Brighton Todd.

Yes...take that.. I used Todd instead of rock! TAKE THAT!

Really, that's probably not my top 5 but I'm pretty brain dead at the moment.

Ahh, yes... Sleeping On The Sidewalk. Probably my second favourite track (next to It's Late) from NOTW. That would have to be bubbing under. :)

My top 5 favorite Brian's solos are:

1. Was it all worth it (I think that is one of the best solos in rock history)
2. It's a Hard Life
3. Bohemian Rhapsody
4. Keep yourself alive
5. Driven by you

Of course, Brighton Rock!!!
