Generally, I think freaking out over every single reference to Queen is tiresome -- how many times have we seen simple shout outs by other bands designated as "news" here?
Nonetheless, I was amused by the number of connections to Queen I could make during some of the performances at the various venues for Live 8. If you can add to my list, go ahead.
::List of Queen-related Thingies During Live 8::
-Robbie Williams (London) does We Will Rock You (and does that looking-into-the-camera thing that Freddie did in Live Aid)
-Green Day (Berlin) does We Are The Champions
-Green Day does that "day-oh" sing-along thing
-Canadian concert MC's Tom Green and Dan Akryod do that "day-oh" sing-along thing
-Scott Weiland of Velvet Revolver (London) does that "day-oh" sing-along thing
-Scott Weiland vaguely looks like Leather-fetish Freddie when he goes topless and wears a conductor cap and sunglasses
-Peter Kay (London) taps on mic and does Flash Gordon
-Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip (Barrie... aka Toronto) does ad lib during Poets, mumbling about "Freddie Mercury" over and over
If you go to the AOL website, you can can relive the concerts in London, Philly, and Barrie/Toronto, choosing the artist you want to watch and even the song. Nice.
