What happened to these keyboard players


Morgan Fisher - keyboards/piano on European Hot Space tour (09.04.1982 - 05.06.1982)
Fred Mandel - keyboards/piano on the rest of Hot Space tour (21.07.1982 - 03.11.1982)

Before Morgan, Freddie handled the synth parts (Japanese Tour, 1981, four or five gigs only). Then after recording Hot Space they felt they needed someone extra. I personally disagree and I think (imho) that they could have done all tours just the four of them. Extreme proved that Ga Ga can be played with only bass, drums and guitar; for other tracks like Friends Will Be Friends Freddie could play the piano.


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.

But I think the extra person helped them out alot. I mean the CLTCL version with piano is much better than without. It could very well be Spike was a better guitar player than freddie & thats why he played in Hammer to Fall. Also the vocals are much better because Spike sang & that made 4 vocal parts (5 if John ever sang).

Freddie and Brian. Brian played the Attack of the Hawkmen live.
