Queen in finland
Queen the rock band which had a gig in Finland last month havent earned the respect it deserves.
This was proven by the low demand of tickets: Only half of the 1500 tickets were sold!
This scandnavian tour launched from Sweden was continuation for the tour that got great reviews just finished in England.
FLIP (local magazine) was around and followed this promise of ´75 during the gig day in Helsinki.
The 4 Pm the press conference was delayed till half an hour later: Vocalist Freddie Mercury was nowhere to be found!
Manager was put on duty to find him and soon the band arrived nicely. My chat moment with boys only confirmed my positive
idea about them. Being divas' was in no form part of their characters. Questions were replied pertinently, but one still
couldnt avoid sencing their rich humour, which made them so direct.
John deacon, the youngest of the band, just turned to 23 in Fall. John began his music interest with comp guitar, but moved
after two years to bass, which is his current instrument. For each member of queen theres common their love to music of
beatless. Boys realisez also in time the importance of studies, and none of them will have no difficulties
to get a new profession if queen wont be the thing in future for them. John's interest is aimed primarly to electronics and
physics: his favourite profession is being studio engineer.
Judged by the pictures the always Grim John is actually quite a hilarious fellow.
"the exorcist" is his last object of jokes. "The papers were full of terrible stories about that movie and so we decided
one day to go and see it with the boys (laughing). "After all we laughed so that tears ran from our very eyes."
John had found leather shoes from Stockmann warehouse during his forenoon shopping trip, got fancied about them
and immediately wanted to buy them. The only troublesome matter was the price of the shoes of 90 FIM
I encouraged John by telling the price was just about normal.
"Roger Meddows Taylor, 24 is like a devil behind his drum pads" so writes the english papers. Well.. erhm at least
in civil he seemed very nice and free-minded young lad. Roger is the only one from the band who smokes;
others relates rejectively to it. Alcohol then is another issue. Brian May's favourite drink is sherry and Roger also
seemed to enjoy well with his whiskey with sprite coktail.
Roger sung in choir as youngster and dont feel any shame about it. Roger's mother discovered boy's interest to music but
insisted to get first a good profession. So Roger was to be trained to be a dentist! The situation was not that agreeable
to Roger and so he formed "The smile" named band with Brian May. In 1970 they got their gears up together and formed Queen.
John came in only some time later.
I asked for Roger to tell about the Tv-program Top of the pops recorded last week. "Yeah our new single Killer Queen rised
to number one on charts and therefore we were asked to do a brief bit for Top of the pops. Funny actually,
because this single was not meant to be a chart climber unlike Seven seas of rhye by then in the beginning of the year.
The song just seemed more suitable for single from the new LP "Sheer heart attack". Of course its nice it is liked.
Yes, it belongs to the best part in our production. There in the rehersals I met Paul and Linda McCartney. They were
fantastic guys. Paul has always been my favourite composer for years and his newest "Junior's farm is brilliant."
The guitarist Brian May, 24 always afraids to hit his head on the ceiling, since he has the modest height of 185 cm.
Brians interest during study times was aimed to physics and astronomy. His ambitions included puzzles and vegetarian foods.
Clapton of course was his great favourite. Brians guitar is one of the prides of Queen.

God created man from dust, man replied with sin and lust..
