As most of these come from reputed sources - most would be indeed true.

nice !

i love this one:

*8) Once, during an early soundcheck, Freddie got mad at the rest of the band over something and stalked out, saying he was leaving for good. When he didn't return after about half an hour, Roger and Deaky were panicking, certain he'd made good on his threat. Brian, however, calmly picked up the microphone Freddie had discarded and called into it, "Oh, Freddie? Freddie-poo? Freddiekins, where are you?" A moment later Freddie poked his head back in to yell "Don't call me that!" Brian just smiled and said, "I knew that would get you back in here."


*17) John haunts the internet chatlines!
*21) John is the quietest member of the band, but according to Brian he can make you curl up and die with two sentences.
*22) John used to enjoy throwing peanuts at Brian whilst he was performing his solos on stage.


haha love those 3 too

I think the wording of that - "drowning somebody" - insinuates something far more sinister that Roger and Crystal had intended. They probably just meant to throw the woman into the pool, but their attempts were scuppered because of the locked door.

*17) Money-wise, Brian's guitar is the cheapest piece of equipment the band owns.

I don't understand it. Are they talking about the Red Special? Wasn't the value of the RS from $500,000-priceless?

This fact is true:

But I think that he means that when it was first built it was worth only a few GB pounds.

If it was any other guitar apart from Brian's that is all it would be worth in a monetary sense.

It is only valuable because of the 'master's hand'.

41.Innuendo had the longest ever music promotional video (six and a half minutes of music)

Wasn't Michael Jackson's Thriller longer than than this? What with all the acting stuff around it.

14) * Roger has never had a real job in his life.

I take it working in Kennsington Market doesn't count then.


43.Bohemian Rhapsody was pressed and released within one week. This had not been done before, and has never been done since.

I'm sure plenty of other artists have done this now. All the crap that is Poop Idol and Z list-Factor have released.

Actually, he says "six and a half minutes of MUSIC"... I don't think "Thriller" counts, because of all the acting.. I could be wrong, though ;-)

I'm really not surprised.

Whoa...

We are, we are the saints
