another was in southern america when Queen were touring. the people had a very strange way of appreciation for queen as not many popular bands went to this certain country. The audience threw bits of metal or battery-like objects on the stage...i dont know why!

Freddie also forgot some words of Radio Ga Ga on a couple of gigs during the Magic Tour...

On every live recording of "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy" that I 've heard, Freddie sings "ram pam pam pam rampampam" instead of the real lyrics in some part of the first verse. Did he constantly forget the words or does he sing it intentionally?

At the Birmingham gig in 1984, at the start of "Love of my life" he hands the microphone over to some guys in the audience who start to scream "love you Freddie!" and some F-words. Sounds like Freddie had some kind of struggle to get the mic back.

I don't remember the exact date, but at the start of "Save me" (Brian on piano) Freddie and Brian don't start simultaneously and Freddie stops after "It started off so well ..." and says: "It didn't start off that well ... fuck off!" before starting again.

By the way, the microphone problems were at Earls Court 1977. The piano mic was okay, but the other one didn't work properly for several songs. Why they didn't exchange it (maybe with John's?) is a miracle to me. Queen by that date should have had spare microphones and cables you should think.

How about the version of "Save Me" where, as Freddie says, it "Didnt start so f&cking well"

There are better pictures but this is the best one I've got seeing as Roger destroyed most of the pictures in embarressment.

Freddie fell on stage, halfway through a concert and hit an already injured leg, so he couldn't walk. But he didn't want to let his fans down :) so he decided to do a few songs where he could sit at the piano. Someone in the roadcrew explained to the audience what had happened and that Freddie still would do some songs. The crowd roared at Freddies courage and loyalty, and when Fred had done the songs he went to to the hospital to do x-rays. The leg wasn't so bad as they had thought. I read it in Peter Freestones book.

At the end of one concert (which one?) Freddie's crown hits the floor and starts to roll off of the stage. Roger makes a minor attempt to chase it but gives up. Ever-practical John comes to the rescue!


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
