I see they worked on the 'Emotions In Motion' album, to me it always seemed to have a very 'Queen' flavour about it. Does anyone know to what extend they helped out?

In addition, Brian was pegged to produce Billy Squier's solo debut, Tale of the Tape (which contains Brian's fave Billy Squier song, the amazing 'Calley Oh'), but couldn't due to conflicting schedules. He was also due to do 'Don't Say No', but recommended Mack to handle the duties.


You know, good times are now.
