How insulting! Couldn't this person have take a bit of time to find out the name of this "other person?" Where was this from, BTW?

so what there were other ways to find out his name....u can tell he wasnt on the ball with the music scene cuz anyone who was would kno that 'other one' only wrote one of Queen's biggest hits and has several of the most popular bass lines in music history.

I can't help but feel the journalist was being humorous with this comment. I don't think it was intended to snub John, merely highlighting his more "in-the-background" presence?

i agree with saltnvinegar. i think that the journalist was attempting humour with this 'other one' remark. i found it quite funny actually.

Perhaps, but not everyone would "get" the joke. You are really open-minded to see it in that light. I think it sounds pretty mean myself.

That really fits in the line of other Queen things I laugh about.
Remember two moments with Brian:

- video shoot 1977 in Roger's snowy backyard (Spread Your Wings or WWRY), the director said something like "Could you tell him to move, the tall one, what's his name..."
- on the Live at Wembley DVD bonus features, Brian backstage, wants to go somewhere where you need a pass to get through, and even he's got to show it to that security guy.
