There's an article on QOnline with the following quote from Roger:

``Freddie was a big fan of his voice right from the beginning,'' says Taylor of Rodgers, from a tour stop in Milwaukee. The original Queen even had a song called ``Hangman'' written in the style of Rodgers' first rock band, Free. It has been performed live, but ``I don't know if we ever recorded it,'' Taylor says.

Strange...
I always found Hangman more like something Zeppelin of Sabbath.
(btw: did anyone else notice that 'Nightmare' on Black Sabbath's 'Eternal Idol'-album has the exact same riff in the exact same tempo as Hangman?! :-P

that's uncanny...!!!

Sounds just like the riff!!

Perhaps that's a reason why they didn't record it in studio ??

edit: Nightmare was from a 1987 album...still, it's quite strange (planned?) that it is so close to the Hangman riff...

Yeah, it is waaaay too identical to be a coincidence, isn't it?! ;-)

Well, Brian and Tony Iommi used to hang out together a lot in those days... Who knows!

Picture yourself in a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
