Here is a dumb question...and I'm sorry to ask but...

Is that a real engine roaring at the end of IILWMC's studio version...or is it studio trickery with one of the instruments?

The reason I ask is that it doesn't sound like a real engine...especially at the end - it sounds like someone's voice mixed in with some weird noise.

It could be Roger himself, after eating too much beans at dinner?

(Brian's guitar, lol)

I don`t know.. we should ask Brian. Some stuff can be achieved with guitar, some can`t, for instance, the bicycle rings in Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon and Bicycle Race are definitely not guitars. The organ in The Wedding March is an organ. The timpani in Drowse is a timpani.


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.

He was almost there with The Wedding March...

Can anyone achieve the sound with their guitar? Maybe we should ask Brian, maybe it is just myth...

According to what he wrote me nearly two years ago, he played organ in Wedding, therefore the "orchestra" we hear is the sound of multi-tracked Red Special plus organ (s)

Roger: Nov. 16, 1997 on the BBC
I remember my car at the time, because I think we've got the exhaust on the record, and that was a little Alfa Romeo
