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.

Sounds like Free? I don't think so.......! I think it's in fairly bad taste how Roger & Brian keep trying to justify this Q&PR tour by saying Freddie was a big fan of his. I've never read anything to back this up?

It sounds very much like free

Especially the drums going on the whole song.. And the rhythm guitar put on top of it.. Listen to stuff like All Right Now and I Can't Get Enough Of Your Love.. It's very much like Hangman.

In which one do you want us to reply??

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

I remember Hangman, it does sound like Free in a way.

They performed it live in earlier concerts, like in 1973. I want to say 1974 as well, but I doubt it. I don't believe there is a studio recording; it was just performed live.

It's far closer to Zep than frigging Free, who were musically little more than a pub rock band.

They performed Hangman live until 1976. And there IS a studio recording.

I'm going to disturb some shit here...

If there IS a studio recording of Hangman...PROVE IT.

If you own an acetate, stone-tablet etching bla-bla-bla...PROVE it...show us a picture.

Somebody on this board claims to own it. Can't recall who though, but perhaps that individual will speak up.

A claim doesn't mean they're telling the truth.

I could 'claim' that I own one of Freddie's Grand-Pianos - and until someone asks for a photo of said piano, I could lead everyone into thinking this was the truth...(I don't own one of Freddie's piano's...it's just an example).

So - again - if you do own Hangman, and want to be completely honest about owning 'these recordings'...give us some proof. :) Otherwise, my conclusion will be that it DOES NOT exist. Trident Acetate or whatever.......

PROVE IT!!

Relax, dude. I'm just relating what I know.

And I believe the person claiming to own it is John S. Stuart, so take your disbelief out on him. I suspect he doesn't think he needs to prove anything to you or anybody else posting around here, so I doubt he will accomodate you.

>Mr Faron Hyte -

No worries at all - my posting wasn't intended to be a stab at you or anyone at all - appologies if it came off that way. I just wanted to know IF it does exist ? Because there are conflicting reports.

Cheers,

Pretty sure John S stuart owns it, since he owns a shit loadof songs we will never hear and a lot of that rare shit you never heard about before but got it from this page or some trader bacially came from him.

I just like to add that pictures aren't everything these days. Just look what people can do with programs like Photoshop these days.

Any real proof for me would lie in a audio sample.

The proof lies in the integrity of someone like John Stuart - you either choose to accept what he says as the truth or you don't.

Can't say I like your name too much but as far as I'm concerned Queen are probably influenced more by Led Zeppelin than any other band.
