Well, shame on me, but I'm gonna make a small poll here :-)

I just curious what is the best in your opinion:

1. Queen live improvisation? (things like Impromptu, Rock In Rio Blues, 'Final Concert Live in Japan' (also available on 'Champions of the world' video) version etc.).
2. Freddie's singalong? ('you sing what I sing' vocal improvisations - 'yeah yeah', 'de do dee', 'coooool, alright' etc.)
3. Brian's guitar solo?

My faves are:
1. Rock In Rio Blues (US HR version)
2. Queen On Fire and 'Rare Live' versions
3. Live Killers

Please feel free to name not only officialy released tracks, bootlegs' releases are welcome too!

P.S. I didn't notice Roger's drum solos since the Timpani solos were pretty similar and his drum solos were too short, but if someone would name them - that's okay! :-)

Brian May - Blues Breaker


To cast aside the fury of the battle.

To turn my weary eyes for home.

1. Rock In Rio Blues
2. Freddie's singalong from the Hot Space tour
3. Live Killers probably, not overly enamoured with Brian's solos!!

I'm personally glad they kept Roger's drum solos shorter. Drum solos aren't incredibly exciting; I mean, they can be good, but if they go past a certain point they get boring. Like some of Led Zeppelin's; they'd turn Bonzo loose, and he'd go wild, but after 3 minutes or so it'd get boring (and they'd let Bonzo go on for like six or seven minutes).

I think the showcase they did give Roger allowed him to show off his talents without letting it go on for too long.

Roger doesn't like to do solos, he was talking about how he would never do another one if he ever saw people getting up during his solos to get hot dogs, and how boring they were, then he made a crack at how brian never cared if it was boring or not.
