Millionaire Waltz is good, but I can't get enough of Dragon Attack. Woo.

Don`t Try Suicide


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

A question for bassists from a guy who never had a bass guitar in his hands. Is it possible to play the bass line of Invisible man live? This is doubled, right?

I`m not a bass player per se, but I can tell you that actually there are several (not many) bass tracks in the studio version, as you can check in the DTS mixes. But as in Breakthru, the tricky parts aren`t done by machines, they`re human

staying power and hmm well.. cool cat... it's simple but i like the way it sounds at some moments... i love listening to bass guitar as i always wanted to play one and i sometimes pick note or two that.. just has this "something"... i cannot explain it neither in polish, nor in english ;)


the only thing to fear is running out of beer...

Hmm. I'm not sure if it's doubled or not but as a bassist myself I assure you...IT IS COMPLICATED!!! I've tried many many times to play it but i just can't keep up with John at all.
And by the way let me add more that i've thought of.
'39-Great Double Bass part.
A Kind Of Magic
Fat Bottomed Girls
Bicycle Race-Another difficult one!!

You`re My Best Friend has electric keyboard AND bass. In the live versions you can see John playing the wonderful bass parts since Fred takes care of the piano

I think John is a good bassplayer with great basslines. But I think he's doing not much in some songs when I see a video of queen. Examples : Somebody to love , play the game, I'm in love with my car and friends will be friends. There are also awsome basslines.
My favourite :

- The Millionaire Waltz
- Good old fashioned lover boy
- Grazy little thing called love
- Bicycle race
- Don't try suicide
- Dragon attack
- Misfire
- Bohemian Rhapsody (the heavy part of the song)
- The march of the black queen
- The Fairy Feller's Master-stroke
- My fairy king
- Liar
- I'm going Slidly Mad
