Here's the quote from Brian's interview from 1991 : "There's a track on here (I won't tell you which one) which I dearly would have liked for my solo album, which I'm still working on, I thought "I enjoy singing it, I enjoy playing it and it sounds good to me", and then I played it to the group to see what they thought and they liked it. I decided if it gets the treatment that the group can give it, it's going to gain an extra dimension, and it would be stupid to keep it just for myself."

Does anybody know which track is it? Is it Headlong?

Yes. This is the favorite Serry's song from Innuendo :-)

What I don't understand is why ICLWY was never a single, or at least a B-Side, maybe of Headlong, because it is brilliant, and in my head the two have become fused.


This can't end well.

I read that this song was very difficult to mix and took a long time to finish. Perhaps this is another reason Brian wanted to continue working on it.

The Hitman is Freddie's


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.

Because he gave to the hitman another "direction" and sang it to guide freddie in the way he could sing it...

I believe this Brian solo song was I Can't Live With You.


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."

Roger DID write Innuendo...it's been documented, and yes Brian did write The Hitman, I Can't Live With You, and Headlong...of course with some ideas from the other guys as well. All this has been documented many many times!!

the song brian was talking about is headlong
that song was early planned to be in "back to the light" album
that`s the reason why brian played it on some venues of his BTTL tour

You suck on guessing who wrote what. Hilarious. And a claim saying Roger wrote it has NOT been documented, except in your mind.

Not according to Brian. Brian said that Freddie wrote The Hitman on keyboards, and Brian took it and transcribed it onto guitar and sung on a demo to see how it would go.

And Innuendo is thrown off due to drums, but Roger hates key changes, trust me, a lot of Queen fans know what they are talking about.

Roger is the main lyricist of Innuendo but of course the music isn't his.
