Tell me if i`me wrong:

At the beginning of Under Pressure at live at the Bowl DVD John Deacon almost falls down because of the wires and he doesn`t do the right progression on bass. You have to listen carefully because he fails to hit one single note, and makes you wonder if that was meant to be played, but it wasn`t!

The reason they didn`t fix it on the DVD was because even though it`s a mistake, you have to be singing along with it to notice. Probably they didn`t notice at the time. I don`t know about the CD version, i`m too lazy to check it out!

Take care

At one point I'm not sure if it's at Under Pressure or not, but someone throws a tennis ball at John, doesn't hit him but he sees it go by.

I've noticed that on the CD. He stays on the D when he should hit an A. I never knew the reason though. I assumed he meant to do it. You are talking about the beginning, correct?

Never mind, you clearly stated "at the beginning of Under Pressure." Sometimes I'm an idiot...

Yeah, it looks like in the DVD he trips over Freddie's mic cord. I don't think it was intentional, because I can't see any reason other than accidental that it would have been done.

yes it's on both the cd and the dvd. I noticed it first on the cd and then watched the dvd and saw him trip. it's not the right note but it still sounds okay though.

I think that was in Action This Day.

It was definately under pressure, if you watch the dvd Freddie walks on to the stage and Johns feet get tangled in his microphone lead

Yes, and that`s the beauty of it, because it makes you think if it was intentional or not.

For me to be clarified i had to go see Wembley, because i was in doubt about the right progression!!- But it`s funny to see...

Take care

Speaking of Action This Day, How many times does Freddie say "Give It To Me" during that one song (let alone the whole concert!!!).

Maybe he wanted the Tennis ball.


it's called vocal improvisation dumbass...the live rendition included a lot more instrumentation....therefore Freddie had to have something to sing.

M.O maybe you should grow up and stop posting crap.

What exactly have you contributed to this site since you joined? As far as I have seen of your posts they have been nothing but cheek and some of it directed at longterm QZ members and in one case to a Queen expert here. Take it from me you wont be here much longer with that attitude.




And you're the authority on what's a good topic or not?

Whatever Barry, you Fairy. I've seen your posts also. You're no expert. You're about as relevant as the Roger's Tackle thread.


The Rogers Tackle thread is extremely relevant i'll have you know.

I always believed Freddie's vocal improvisation during tracks was self-explanatory....perhaps not....
