I'm reciting from memory, but I think it's, "This is where the guitarist gets to speak, now and again. Well I don't have very much to say except thank you very much for coming, and, ah, making this the hottest ticket this country's ever seen. You're grrreat - we love you." Something like that.

It is exact.

He usually said something before Love of My Life.

For example, on Live at the Bowl 82 he says: "Thank you, this is the guitarists chance to say a few words so thank you for coming first of all. Thank you for making this long trip to Milton Keynes, I think it was worth it. What do you think? Thats alright! I'm gonna have a little fiddle around a bit..."

Lester you must have a brilliant memory, I am sure that's what he said word for word.


Heh, what can I say, I listened to the album a lot when it first came out!

Actually, I never could understand what he said when he said "the hottest ticket this country's ever seen", but I thought he said "you have the right" instead of "you're grrrreat." I never understood what rights the audience had that day, except maybe to a good show...

Not quote exact I'm afraid, Dr Incontinence:

"This is the point where the guitarist gets to speak, now and again. And today I don't have very much to say except thank you very much for coming and, uh, making this the hottest ticket this country has ever seen. You're great - we love you. Wanna sing?"

But still a good effort.

Can you recite from memory Freddie's 'Rivers of blood' speech from the same night?

"Here is the means of showing that the vocalist can organise to consolidate their members, to agitate and campaign against their fellow musicians, and to overawe and dominate the rest with the vocal cords which the bassists and the drummers and the guitarists have condemned. As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’. That tragic and intractable phenomenon which we watch with horror on the other side of the stage but which there is interwoven with the history and existence of Queen itself, is coming upon us here by our own volition and our own neglect. Indeed, it has all but come. In numerical terms, it will be of Brian's proportions long before the end of this show. Only John's hair and urgent action will avert it even now. Whether there will be the audience participation to demand and obtain that action, I do not know. All I know is that to see, and not to sing, would be the great betrayal."

yea that one, but before he puts the mic up to his mouth. Like he realizes that the mic isnt in front of him after he starts talking into it

hey... know that you guys are talkin' about this...

i'd like to know what is Brian talkin about, on his speech before Love Of my Life on Milton Keynes...

Is that speech against some people, a crticism, or something like that?...

I have listened to it a lot of times and i still can't understand...

thanx...
