john deacon was a great bass player but there are some songs that definetly stand out and my favourite bass song would have to be....
"dragon attack"

John Deacon is great because he became a millionaire with such a simple and basic bassplaying gheghe. But he had some great moments :

- Dragon attack
- Mustapha
- Jealousy
- TFFMS
- Liar
- A kind of magic
- My baby does me
- rain must fall
- the show must go on

You know where I will be

In order:

1) Millionaire Waltz
2) Dragon Attack
3) You're My Best Friend
4) Melancholy Blues
5) Cool Cat (he slaps in this one)

I always thought it was cool that John used pic to finger 50/50.

john deacon is not a simple bass player and i dont no why people keep sayin that. Im a bassist and i know what simple basslines are and his are some of the quirkiest and hardest ive seen in a rock band.

my favourite would have to be keep yourself alive or crazy little thing
