Whoa whoa whoa folks!
Just look at my name.....hint hint anyone?

Hehe, nah, I'm just teasing. But I really do feel that Brighton Rock has an amazing solo. No, not just amazing, but fucking amazing. It's great what that word can add to a sentence or statement.

I remember reading on best guitar solo's somewhere....Bohemian Rhapsody was of course, in there, but I saw Brighton Rock and nearly pissed myself into oblivion. Good recognition! Woo...now I want some chicken.
cheers

1) NOT Back Chat. That did not belong in the song.
2) NOT Brighton Rock. Excess does not equal greatness.

Now that I'm done being negative :D

1) The Invisible Man
2) Hammer to Fall
3) That acoustic part at the beginning of '39
4) Bohemian Rhapsody

I agree that excess does not equal anything great....

But Brighton Rock, despite the lengthy solo, is actually rather impressive. I have my cronie pals (ugh, in punk bands....of all things) who are stunned by this. But then again...they are in punk bands, so I'm sure ANYTHING stuns them into pissing their pants and forgetting who they are for an hour, dontcha think? Woo....
cheers

Even guitar greats see it as a masterpiece of artistry....but I accept your negativity....oh yes!

Brighton Rock at Hammersmith Odeon'75... I dunno if it's Bri's best solo ever, but it's definitely my fav!


I LOVE QUEEN!

The guitar solo in "Put out the fire" is my favourite . Brian recorded that when he was very drunk. "Brighton Rock" is also great. I love the live version on Live Killers. Brian also plays great things in the live versions of "Grazy Little Thing Called Love".

Brian's most effective guitar solo is, in my humble opinion, You Don't Fool Me. Absolutley amazing.

I don't know. It just seems overdone to have a three-to-four minute solo in the middle of a song that's supposed to be a band effort. I'm not denying that it's impressive, I want to know how his fingers don't split open, but I think he overdid it.

And BIJOU...my GOD. I have holes in my track-changing button from me stabbing it when that song comes on...though it is very pretty for the first minute or so. We'll just have to agree to disagree on those :)

Oh yes...Put Out The Fire is terrific!
