There were a bunch of them. Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting (Elton John), Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin), Imagine (John Lennon), Jailhouse Rock (Elvis), Hello Mary Lou (Ricky Nelson), Tutti Frutti (Little Richard), Big Spender, etc. There are probably more I'm forgetting, though!

That's odd, then why does it say on the Sheer Heart Attack sleeve that Stone Cold crazy was written by Freddie and Brian?

White Queen isn't a Smile song, Brian just wrote it when he played in Smile, but they never recorded it.

They also played Voodoo Chile

Can their version of Imagine be downloaded from somewhere? Was it ever recorded somehow, or just the live version?

Never claimed it's mine. What else should I do? Tell the person who wants to know what songs did they play to buy a book?

Interesting fact about Not Fade Away......if I remember my obscure facts right, that song was Rush's first single.....another band I love.....wel I love both Rush and The Rolling Stones who also covered that song famously....now theres an interesting aside........I always thought that I would have loved to hear QUeen cover a Rush song, or vice versa
