When John Lennon died, Queen were touring, and in the soundcheck played 'imagine' as a tribute.
Is there any chance it was recored?
Something similar happened for Jimi Hendrix's death. Freddie sang 'Voo doo Child'. Finding something of this is even harder, but has anyone heard of a tape or whatever?

Didn't they actually play Imagine on stage twice?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

A recording of Queen playing Imagine is not hard to track down at all.

No doubt it's been shared in the 'Sharing The Music - Announce' section here at some point.

I think Hot Space is dedicated to John Lennon IN A WAY! I mean, Song For Lennon and in the Calling All Girls video theres a painting which looks like Lennon a bit.

I'm only aware of three at most: London 12-9-80, Frankfurt 12-14-80, and perhaps Munich 12-18-80. I don't have the Munich recording, and I've heard that the recording of Imagine could be a fake... as in, it's one of the previous recordings, and purposely degraded in quality.

I've no real interest in these things Bob, so I don't have any first-hand knowledge of the matter. Rather, I'm just repeating what I've heard from reputable people. You certainly know far more than I, so you're most probably right.

In fact:

"John Lennon was shot on December 8 so the following night Queen performed Imagine as a tribute to him. This song appeared in the setlist three more times in December".

And Scully is always right.
