Hi, We all know that Brian & Roger were in Peter Kays Video of "Amarillo" & Peter Guested at both the Manchester & Hyde Park concerts of this year, but I have just watched the new DVD from Peter Kay "Max & Paddy's - The Power of two" & Max(Peter Kay) says that "Bev Callard" of corrie fame, Looks like a Ginger Brian May.

I have watched all of Peter's other incarnations, i.e. "That Peter Kay Thing", "The Services", "Pheonix Nights" & "Max & Paddy's - Road To Nowhere" & have noticed that there's lots of Queen references & links within the shows.

Just For Fun, how many of them can you name?
e.g.(in "The Services" Peter Kay sings "We Will Rock You" naked, down the Hard Shoulder of the M62)

So I've given you 2 to start with,
1. "Max & Paddy's - Power of Two" Ref to Brian as Bev Callard.
2. "The Services" Naked rendition of We Will Rock You.

Have Fun!!!!!!

Aha, I'd forgot about that one.

He must have mentioned them in his stand up somewhere, when hes going on about partys...

His bit of one vision from Hyde Park

Where he says bits of songs sound like something totally different

In One Vision where the lyric is "look what they've done to my dreams"

he says it sounds like (which it does) "What have they done to Mike Reid"

Very funny man

Yes, Peter will have most likely Done some Queen refs on his "Live Stand Up" Shows, but the last Ref I was refering to is from "Pheonix Nights".

Does Anybody Know it?

If Anybody knows of anymore, be it "Live" or "His TV shows" please feel free to list them here.

Have Fun!!!!

No it wasn't the "A Day At The Races" comment, as that, I think was to be taken literaly, to be A day at the races.

The one that I mean, is a different ref.

Do You all give in? Shall I tell you?

Brian Mays Wig, The last one that I can Think of is from "Phoenix Nights" It's when Mark Park's duo "Park Avenue, I Think?" win the Talent Night competition. The Phoenix Club's house band play "We Are The Champions"

I Don't think that they are any more, but I could be wrong. If Anyone can think of any more, please do tell.

Don't shun it, Fun it!!!!!

Shit, I forgot that one!!!


Touching a different subject, I was watching Paddy N Max lastnight, the one with the pig and the senile farmer. I had to laugh when the farmer said "these were my dads fields, he worked them til his fingers bled, back in the summer of '69!"


Thats why you have to watch them over and over, very clever writing, and very funny.

You certainly do have to watch them over and over again.

Another game to do is to watch out for references to Bob Carolgies - he loves him too!
