In spite of all the frustration, it IS clear that Freddie's health could not allow a "Miracle Tour", and surely no "Aloha From Hawaii" one off either.

So the geeky question is :

During the sessions for The Miracle and Innuendo, it is said they have recorded much material "live". Is there a possibility they might have played older songs in the studio just for fun ? You know, like 'Killer Queen live in the studio 1990" ? Could there be such recordings ?

Have any of the most knowledgeable fans heard anything about this ?

John S Stuart maybe ?

Possible, but I don't think so. They've played jam sessions, imrovisations, but not old stuff.

No, not like the Beatles who played 'Love Me Do' during the Abbey Road sessions.

I didn't know that, but that's exactly what I meant.

Oh well, I suppose they were painfully aware that time wasn't on their side so they must have focused on moving on and doing sth new. It would have been amazing, though, especially considering Freddie's voice at this period (Innuendo I mean), so pure and yet so deep...

Um, if I'm comprehending this right, you're saying during those late sessions they did a live recording of a Killer Queen/Bicycle Race Medley with fake fan noise? Where did you hear this at? Do you have the recording?

methinks Stateside was making a little joke at the expense of the overdubs on "Live Killers"
