I'm a Man isn't similar to DAnny Boy.

I'm a Man is similar to Mannish Boy. Queen never played I'm a Man, and never played Mannish Boy really. They always played a mix between those 2 songs.

It's a mix of those songs but I vote for I'm A Man as Brian played I'm A Man in his student days so it's more likely that they intended to play this one :)

Wow... mixing up Danny Boy with Mannish Boy and I'm A Man... that's a first.

Well it's all pretty confusing. The title Danny Boy is easily mistaken for Mannish Boy. :-P

On QueenConcerts.com, you can read:

Queen in Dublin, Ireland on 22.11.1979 (written by John Brogan)

"Of most interest to Queen fans now and the biggest shock to me then was that Danny Boy was played live - a great version, from what I recall which received a terrific ovation from the audience."

That's utter bullshit. Moreover, they only played one Irish gig in '79, so there is no 'first' gig.


I think he wanted to say that that was Queen's first gig in Ireland ever.

No need to say it was "utter bullshit". Especially if you can be wrong, as it seems to be.

If they played there at all then there must be a first gig - if there ain't no first gig then they didn't play any - it might be the only one but it is still the first. Think it is your bullshit matey skip :-)
