This may have been discussed before, I can't believe no one else hadn't noticed before me. I think Brighton Rock's roots are in a Smile song. I'm talking about Blag. Brian's solo in the end of the song is pretty similar to Brighton Rock. So does anybody know who wrote Blag?
P.S. Am I right? I'm no musical genius, so I might be wrong about these two solos being similar.


I LOVE QUEEN!

Yeah, I too think the solos are similar.

I think Brian talked about that in his soapbox


John hated Hot Space. Fred's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Wales is not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
