Take a look!
Although there are 200 performances, we can find our John four times on the list.
Give your opinions! It's a matter of tastes of course.

62. Dragon Attack - John Deacon (Queen)
75. Another One Bites The Dust - John Deacon (Queen)
157. Under Pressure - John Deacon (Queen)
158. Father To Son - John Deacon (Queen)

I'm glad to see Father to Son in there as a not so obvious (but great) choice, although I would put it much higher!

I'd like to see "Millionare Waltz" on that list.

Magnificent played. Also very difficult, especially doing it in time with the piano and no drums to hide behind... No click track here, I tell ya!

The bass in many of the later Beatles' songs is simply amazing! Please stay alive, Sir Paul! ;)
