I remember him saying a few words on the Tribute Concert. He also used to sing along in the harmonies. Except from this, has John ever said anything during a Queen concert?

I've seen this picture of the tribute concert where Brian, Roger and John are standing in front of microphones and they seem to be singing. Since I only have the DVD of the show, I don't know what happens in that part (it only features briefly in the intro). What is happening in this particular part?

"Hello, first of all, Brian, Roger and myself would like to thank all the artists who are performing here today, in London, and they've given their time and energy to make this tribute to Freddie a reality, and to happen today. First of all, the show must go on, and we'll start with an American band, three times Grammy award winners, will you please welcome Metallica!"

Serry, i've seen Spike Edney with the SAS band sing lead vocals & he actually sings in tune. Also Spike sings backing vocals (in tune) on the 2005 tour. so I tend to think it's John, (I could be wrong though.) It could be Spike having a bad day.

For the 1002nd time, that Milano 84 mp3 is Spike singing! John's voice isn't nearly so high. Just because John is at the mic doesn't mean he's actually singing! The only time John ever sang live was duringo Somebody To Love on the A Day At The Races tour. That's IT. Nothing more.

But to answer the original question: The only time I've heard John *say* anything during a Queen concert is on the Houston 77 soundboard. He is the first one to say "thank you" after the band play Bohemian Rhapsody.

As it was mentioned earlier, John is heard on some live performances of Liar. During the "all day long" part, I remember hearing that John's voice can be heard pretty clearly, can someone confirm this?

Ah, the mystery continues on John and his voice. Johns' mic was "live" during concerts but probably kept lower than the others' mics. Roger used it during the acoustic sets and a video of the band in South America has Freddie using it when his own mic cut out on him. I've seen them twice and he never uttered a word at those gigs.

Yeah, that's right. I've just seen it on RARE LIVE. He's singing over Fred's shoulder - definately the Deakster!

Peace

Never. I've heard over 100 recordings of Liar through the years, and John has never once sang in the song. It's just Fred, Bri, and Rog.

*sigh* there are NO clear recordings of John singing. And yes he did sing very rarely on concerts, but the volume was always very low. You can only hear him a bit in mid 70's recordings of Somebody to Love where he sings in the acapella part

If you listen carefully, you can hear John sing on many parts during the Earls Court 1977 show.

For example, he does backing vocals on In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited. First, you can hear Freddie, Brian and Roger. And eventually, you can see John walk to the microphone and he joins them. At that moment, you can hear a 4th voice singing, it's John.

So are you saying that John is pretending to sing into Freddie's microphone?


Most of the time, yes.

Whooooooooa, you certainly may be right. For years, I've been hoping Brian's voice didn't sound this bad, and now I can be happy that it's not, as I now think you're right - it's John.
