In the spirit of Johnny K: I was playing my Red Special when... (What a GREAT name for a song title), and New Brian May sound Booster OMG!

I would like a genuine set of Roger Taylor drumsticks. Do you think they will make me sound like Roger, as I can not get the correct We Will Rock You Sound!

Does the sixpence simulator really exist, is Johnny K winding us all up?



Ever tried the new Sennheiser microphone? It has a Freddie Mercury sim build in! Awesome....

Dont ask me why... Paul Rodgers ignores it On Tour though! :-))

No - can't say I have.

But I have tried some of the Night At The Opera's - Seaside Rendezevous meagphone effects with a rolled-up newspaper.

Do you think these effects would sound better if I was to roll-up a genuine 1975 Night At The Opera Tour Programme instead?

Well... its a case of try and error. Id suppose you ll start with a 1974 Programme, official of course... if it works...fine!

Else, try it with a 1975 or 1976 Programme... which one sounds better? ;-)

Keep in mind, they recorded Seaside Rendezvous BEFORE they went on tour.... so there was no genuine 1975 Night At The Opera Tour Programme available for them to use at the time of recording Seaside Rendezvous!!! :-))

offcourse that simulator doesn't excist! It's created for whino's who keep saying the want to get the Brian sound, but who don't want to get rid of their Telecaster and buy a Red sPecial replica

Finding a sixpence isn't easy so, for that serated edge sound, I cut out a bit of a cheese grater. It works great but I seem to get through a lot of strings.

John: The genuine 1975 Night At The Opera Tour Programme roll-up trick only works on songs from that particular album. If you want to do simulations off of other tour themes/albums, you have to use the appropriate tour programme. But you really should already know that, so I am convinced you are just taking the piss, as it were.

Now, if only Johnny would keep tightening that E string . . .

I found this really magical lead cable at a clothing stall in Kensington Market and now I play bass just like John Deacon ;)

Oh just get Roger Taylor engraved on the sticks - about as cheap-imitationly as a faux red special (well, I know the red special copies cost a bomb but you know what I mean!!). But there is a chance that (since they'll be imitation drumsticks) they might just snap when you use them...
