What music did queen actualy listen to? and did they have some sort of "idols"
I know that they were good friends with Elton John...

Queen was by there time incomparable, but did they perhaps had any rivivals?

Eclectic taste. All of them.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Roger listens to Eminem....but I think his son likes him. His kids love Queen and all the old stuff so its a reversal of tastes.

Brian likes Black Sabbath and AC/DC. I think Roger too, they were both into that heavy metal scene. John was more into soul/funk that type, whatever you call it.


I'm so pissed I could spit.

The White Albums absolutely FANTASTIC! Some really bizarre stuff on there though, like Revoultion Number 9... strange stuff...
I Love Rubber Soul as well...
And my Beatles Collection is growing, along with my QUEEN ALBUMS!

Actually Roger wasn't such a Beatles fan. He liked them of course, but he was way more into Hendrix, Yardbirds, Cream, Led Zeppelin and John Lennon's solo career. And David Bowie.

In yesterdays documentary he said he only liked the later stuff from the Beatles: Revolver and Rubber Soul especially

Brian mentioned "Fire and Water" by Free as one of his favourite albums of all time long time before they joined forces with Paul Rodgers...

John i thought liked Stevie Wonder.

Freddie loved Prince and Boy George (no wonder his writing in 80s declined...)

I wanted (and still want) to know everything possible about Brian. :)
So I figured out who his favourites are (or were when he was a teenager). Now I'm trying to explore the works of these artists, some of them is familiar to me but there are a few I don't know at all.
Here's my list /and my comments, too/:

The Beatles /I underrated them for a long while, what a shame!/

Buddy Holly /Rock and roll performer, I saw a film about his life but I can hardly remember./

Lonnie Donnegan /Don't know who he is./
The Everley Brothers /Yet unknown for me./

Hank Marvin /Also unknown./

Smokey Robinson /Brian mentioned in an interview that his favourite song by Smokey was "Tracks of My Tears". Annie Lennox (my all-time favourite besides Brian) performed it live with Smokey too, and it's a beautiful song actually!!!/

Jeff Beck /I've been listening to his album called "Who Else!". That's an instrumental album, very similar to Gary Moore's style. Pleasant music./

Jimi Hendrix /I quite like it!/

Cream with Eric Clapton /I also like their and Eric's solo works. I noticed that Brian's "On My Way Up" gets me in the same mood as Eric's "After Midnight"./

Def Leppard /I'm not very keen on 80's rock./

Foo Fighters /I don't like them at all./

Van Halen /They have a couple of good riffs./

Status Quo /I like their songs from the 70's./

So, that's all for now I'll add more if I find something interesting! :)
