I was just looking at a concert DVD in Barnes & Nobles called "Queen We Will Rock You The Definitive Performaces of Queen" on MobileVision 2001.

I did not buy it which I will get to why in a minute.

It's all concert footage produced by Mack &
I guess videos...all w/ Freddie and Queen.

My question, the COVER photo is of Freddie and the band, Freddie is playing acoustic guitar...and I stared at that photo for some 30 minutes, (The manager must have thought I was nuts), because I'd SWEAR, you can see Freddie wearing a SLIDE on his hand on the neck of the guitar...really!

--Did Freddie ever...even once!...ever!...PLAY with a SLIDE?--

--Can someone look at this photo on this DVD and tell me I'm not nuts!--

If it HELPS any the photo must be from The Game Tour....Roger's drums have his FACE on them.

--2nd question As I said I didn't buy this DVD. It says it's authorized by QPL. What is it of, what concerts? Here's the track listing.--

WWRY
Let Me Entertain You
Play The Game
Somebody To Love
Killer Queen
I'm In Love With My Car

I own that DVD (as I'm sure many here do). I looked at the picture, and I kind of see what you mean, but it seems clear he doesn't have a slide in that picture. As a matter of fact, I just watched it two nights ago, and I can tell you for certain, he did not use a slide. It wouldn't make much sense anyway, because he couldn't very well play his rhythm guitar part in Crazy Little Thing Called Love (the only song he played guitar on) with a slide.

Arlene-

I own the dvd too...

I don't see the slide in the photo...nor is there any reason for Fred to wear a slide...

Brian plays slide on the second half of "Tie Your Mother down's" solo.... and thats the only slide part that sticks out.

This DVD is not videos. Its the concert queen played at Montreal over 2 night in '81. This was the first concert video release on Queen.

Brian uses a slide on "Tie Your Mother Down" and the out-ro of "Radio GaGa". I don't think i've ever seen Freddie use a slide, either that or he's got one outrageous ring!

EVH-

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Brian is probably not playing 1984's "Ga Ga" on this Queen concert from 1981.

How does the crowd ruin it? Are they "unruly", loud, ignorant to Queen...do they obscure the sound of the music? If it sucks I'm not getting it.

Have you seen it, anybody else, what's wrong with this concert? Is the audience that out of control that they ruin the sound and the performance?

But are Queen and their performance good at this concert?...The song/track listing seems pretty great, I saw LOML, SBTL, Killer Queen, BoRhap, CLTCL, great stuff! How is Roger's drum solo...I saw that listed?

They didn't know MY FAVORITE SONG, LOML (along w/ TATDOOL)....Sacrilage!!!! Oh, the insanity!

Geez, in Latin America, LOMY was a HIT single, and they speak Spanish there. What is wrong with Canada...Aliens from another planet I tell you.

Arlene..

Here is the deal with this concert...

Queen are on top of their game... "Let Me Entertain You" is awesome.... The medley that consisted of "Dragon Attack" is unreal...

(this Dragon Attack, for you Freddie lovers, features Mercury slinking around Roger's drums very "FLAMEboyantly" wearing the quinisental white skin tight jeans, and shirtless hairy chest...

...he's almost like flirtatious with Roger during this extened jam....and Roger is just smiling back like some 19 yr old hottie babe was teasing him.

...This concert also may feature the best professionally filmed version of "I'm in love with my car".... Fred on piano and harmonies, keeps looking back at Roger like..."whoa, where the hell did that voice come from".

HOWEVER...
This was filmed in Canada...maybe a French speaking part?? The crowd all look like a dog watching a card trick... they looked confused... no one is singing along... some people are sitting.

Its like 70% had never heard of Queen, or any song before.

During "Jailhouse Rock"... the band is tight!
Freddie is running all over like a madman, and he goes as far stage right as he can get.... and in the middle of singing says "C'mon, move it you fuckers".

This is the same concert where at the end Freddie says "Ok, now lets go get fucked".

Don't misunderstand me... the crowd knows they are hearing a badass band... they are just more apt to set back, and watch...this was not a partying crowd.

I've heard live bootlegs of this...and you can hardly tell it was live....the crowd is that quiet.

I'm guessing there is probably 40,000 people there at least???

Its weird.... this concert also has the huge "white light" that covers the audience alot...maybe they were hypnotized or something?

www.queenpicturehall.com is the site to use in researching past releases

A couple of notes on 'WWRY'...The Montreal Forum held around 20,000 for concerts. Secondly, this was Queen's second Montreal performance in 15 months. Other than UP, it's virtually the same song list as in 1980.

AOBTD was old and stale, no longer worthy of being used as an encore (holds true for the '82 tour). So, I'm going to somewhat let the fans off the hook. And perhaps Q should have said something during the concert about the filming to get them off of their hands, eh?

There's the typical camera editing mistakes one expects from people who know little about the band (zooming in on John after reappearing during BoRhap is an idiotic blunder), but the VHS was worth the purchase in the 80s, and the DVD (w/Jailhouse Rock) makes it even better. You take what you can get.

Scott, thanks alot! Actually this sounds GREAT. It would be nice if the audience interacted and were enthused, but my preoccupation is with Queen and their performance and from what you said they sound AWESOME as always.

I want to see this Dragon Attack performance that Freddie went wild on that you discussed...you know me..I'm sure I will LOVE it!!!!, (sounds like Roger got into it and loved it too, Chuckle!)

Does anyone know why Flash's Theme & The Hero were not included on the DVD and why the middle of Brians solo is still missing ?


I love you for your mind baby give me your body.
