hey guys...i like this song a lot but i have a question...does the name/phrase "Kashoggi's Ship" have a meaning or is it just something random? i know its used in the song "we took a holiday on Kashoggi's Ship" or something like that, so i was just wondering...;)

I'm shocked that no one answered you. Hon, don't worry I'm here though. Khashoggi was an illegal arms dealer> I for get his first name I'm pretty sure it starts with an "A". The song itself started off as a jam session so Freddie was probably just "free stylin" the lyrics and came up with that. I think they really did go to a party on one of his ships though. Based on that Mike Reid interview from 1989.

Perhaps they met Kashoggi in Marbella (Spain) back in 1986 when they performed there!...

You mean like Kashmoogi? Now that'd be embarrassing.
