Well... Freddie was seriously sick in 89 so hardly that year... I'll think some of these years : 1986, 1980, 1975, 1977.... 1991 was memorable and creatively very good, but...sad end---

I agree with you on that one Mr. Quinn. At that point in their career they were HUGE here in the States. But I would like to add that THe Game tour was also massive. The album and the tour hit number one and everything they touched seemed to turn to gold... when it wasn't going platinum. I got into them during this period of the late 70's and it was an amazing time (for me at least)to see my heros have so much sucess in the course of 3 years.

I'm not sure that the main reason of being 'most enjoyable year' is their success in USA, but I agree - News Of The World and The Miracle era were the best ones, IMO. They were working together as a real band in the early and last years.

I think the Band would put 1986 high up on the list.

I agree with that, too. And also when Bohemian Rhapsody finally gave them their first truly huge success.

Yeah, I bet Freddie was loving it in 1989....or not.

They do seem to have been having fun, even John (!) in the videos, but I wouldn't suppose they were personally the best years for any of them.

I reckon they probably all enjoyed 1986, because they were just about as big as they'd ever been and were playing a brilliant show, to massive crowds, with the best lights, sound, etc etc ever, I think that must have been great for them.

Either that or 1974 when they started to realise that they were gonna go places, although Brian spent most of it in hospital so he probably wasn't massively keen on 74.
