On the Queen Greatest Video Hits II bonus features they have live clips from some music festivals. Those songs sound exactly like the origional tracks, there's layered guitar Brian could not have possibly played in one strum, and sometimes Freddie would take his mouth away from the mike and he'd still be singing. Were they FAKING?? And if so, why the HELL did they put it on a damn GVH II??

Please somebody tell me I'm wrong!

They actually were lip-synching at the Montreux Festival. I think it was just policy to have any artist appearing lip-synch, but the band wasn't too pleased, which is why Freddie didn't make a huge effort to be convincing.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Both damnit. It's a disgrace. Why on earth did they put it on a Greatest freaking Video Hits then?

But at least I know i'm not crazy now.

And FYI, Joe, just push that little button on top of any post w/ the little quotes and it will automatically include it. (unless you're doing that intentionally, whereas ignore this)




I've never even noticed it before. I'll have to watch that some time is the festival of 84, or 86?

It's because I'm a musical genius with an amazing sense of intuition...

Ok. But really, I thought it was obvious. Then again, I believe I have what you'd call a phonographic memory, kind of like photographic only I can always remember exactly how something sounded or exactly what somebody said. Not too unusual, really.

Freddie and lip-synching... that doesn't fit. I hate that video in Montreux. I don't know if all the bands faked their performances there... But I do know that the gigg was shortly after releasing a new album, so maybe Queen wasn't ready to play those songs live.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

AS far as I know, giving bands the opportunity to play life is much more expensive than letting them lip-synching. Queen had to be convinced to do it. And it is soooo obvious they are not trying too hard. And if you listen to the commentaries on both GVH DVDs Roger is telling again and again how boring that is. Didn't he say that telling someone they are good in lip-synching would have to be one of the worst insults?

I get a kick out of John and Brian 'playing' the synthesizers on 'Radio Ga Ga'.

I think it's fun, and was included because it hadn't been released anywhere before in its entirety.

What do you mean? I don't know what your talking about. Please explain to me.


What I mean was you don't have to copy and paste other people's comments, or whatever you're doing, to your own comment when you want to reply to what they said. I noticed you were doing this and was wondering whether you were doing it on purpose. If you put the quotes in a box (like I did above), people would probably understand you more. To do it, there's 3 boxes above each post, and if you click the one w/ quotes it will do it automatically. I'll feel really dumb if you already knew this but whatever. I'm just anal that way I guess.

And as long as I have you, you didn't misunderstand me in that post about Brian May did you? Cause loads of people did. It kind of upset me. I was TRYING to say that some people here should be more respectful and careful of what they say about him, because some people make it SOUND like they're saying he's a loser. Either I should have been clearer, or people didn't bother to read my post all the way through or SOMETHING.

Anyways, sorry for the miscommunication!

I actually enjoyed watching Queen perform at the Montreux Festival....it was funny the way Freddie acted...it was hilarious to watch him be as least convincing as he could...I also noticed that Roger messed up a drum beat in one of the songs..anyway...they appeared to be having a good time....can't take these things too seriously...

Unfortunately yes, they were lip-synching. I was shocked myself, but I'm glad to read that they were forced into it and didn't do it by choice.

Queen didnt want to play at that festival because it they hated not playing live, but the chance to be seen by so many people was too great an opportunity to pass up. Especially when they were trying to gain back fans after the relatively lackluster HOT SPACE.

I think it does have a place on GVII. I personally want to see every single piece of recorded Queen performance. Its a chance to see other footage to their songs.
