A commentary I found searching for "Brian May" on Google News.

While John Harris lavishes praise on the boys at first, for their amazing Live Aid performance, he goes on to criticize them in unique ways I have had yet to see.

Among them, being that Queen allied itself with "liberal bleeding hearts."

Go check it out yourself.

well the sun city thing was a stupid idea.

they praise queen for justifiable merits..but its fair to also criticise the sun city decision.

at least its a thoughtful criticism of queen...unlike tony parsons style journalism

I hate how they refer to the band as 'Freddie, Brian, Roger and The Other One'. John is so disrespected, even though he wrote one of their hugest hit singles!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Guys like Richard or Elton could play there with no problems and it was okay, but Queen were so stupid? I can't see something stupid in their South Africa's shows...

Well, it sounded a bit like satire to me because John was always overshadowed by Freddie's frontman persona, Brian's amazing guitar and well....Roger's crazy antics, if you know what I mean.
I believe he was just kidding; mocking the disrespect others actually have towards Deaky, or lack of recognition to say the least.
Cheers
