Well, what do we all think of the new DVD? Have you got it yet? Freddie looks great and their timing is suberb. Top stuff
Personally, I love "Save Me" What about others?

Hey Karen...

Yeah, MK rocks!!!
Although when I was watching the Freddie "games" part with the crowd my mum gets all flustered and violent with me and says, "Turn it off!!!" Again I get ostracised. But yeah, Freddie was great, and I love Rog's vocals on Action This Day.

Superb!


Queen are the best band, and they're still underrated!

Hi Karen!
I agree with you. It rocks absolutely!
Freddie's voice is so great from the opening till the end! Surely he was at the top condition.
Hero is very cool, which was the excellent choice for the opening number. Besides, many numbers are bloody cool, as far as I can recall now, such as Action, Staying Power, Sombody To Love, Love Of My Life, Save Me, Fat Bottomed Girls and so on... It surely proves that Freddie was and are still one of the greatest singers being outstanding so much in both heavy numbers and quiet ones.

You know, Brian (yes, Brian May) has a lot of intersting stuff to say on his website about the DVD. (BrainMay.com) - I think it is under the soapbox section and you may have to scroll back to about Nov 1st. Titled "Off the cuff comments about the Bowl" or something like that.

He sounds really proud of what they did (as he should be!!)

I'd like to add a few more words...to tell the truth, I've found myself having been deeply charmed again with other members, Brian, Roger, John to see it.
And I've been seeking for proper expression about Freddie's vocals, which I can hardly give in English...his voice had the luster like one of pearls. He must have been conscious of his excellent condition at that time.

Suppose they were in their almost best condition, it was really a shame that they had no concert in 1983 till august in 1984...

I'm afraid I've written too much...for which their great work of it has been to blame. :)

Great! But I'd like to watch some more bonus stuff on second disk and I can hardly understand why interviews were edit and why 'Live in Japan' was edit too.

I'm watching it right now, and I'm wondering why John never seems to change his outfit. Brian changes at least twice, so does Roger, and John's still in his same blue pants and shirt! (Actually, he was wearing it on the We Will Rock You DVD, too!) Why is he so attached to his blue? Just a completely random question. :) That and why in the world was Freddie trying to eat Brian's guitar during Sheer Heart Attack?


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

I love the performance, but it looks too RED on my screen sometimes;( Maybe Hollywood Records doesn't have good quality control.
