Live Killers for me, by far! When Roger's drums kick in towards the end, it's magic!

Most definately the live killers version it has got more emotion, power and sheer harmony in it's delivery and it's one i play very often.

Gives me goosebumps everytime i play it Top class from brian may.

Second one would be live at wembley.

till the end of time

till the end of time.

Best live release would be Live Killers indeed.
The best unofficial one would be from Chicago 1978, the best Brighton Rock/Instrumental Inferno I've ever heard.

My favorite brighton rock live version is from the Hammersmith Odeon, Christmas '75. In fact, I think it's maybe their best show ever.

I think the best officially released version of Brighton Rock was definitely the one they played at Live Aid...

For once there was no unnecessary extended fiddling with the guitar solo, and Brian concentrated on the actual song.

There was no Brighton Rock during Live Aid...
They just made a medley containing various songs but no guitar solo's or anything.

If I'm correct (and this is a big fat honking 'if') you're talking about the two chords he usually plays in fast succession during the end of his stage solos.

These are high A's and D's, I think. Basically, you can achieve this sound using 'cowboy' chords, but played one octave higher. Like - up high. It takes a bit of practise to achieve the switch nice and fast the way he does it, but once you've nailed it you are laughing!

I'm not quite sure I understand which ones you mean...
The final two chords also on the Wembley version?

Those are B- and E fifths I believe...
