Hi,
Just wondering if anyone has read any background info on the inspiration for this song?

"I took my baby to see a heavy band
But I never saw my baby till the encore
She had the singer by the hand"

makes me wonder if it was to do with groupies?

P.S sorry if there's already a thread on this but I just can't get the search function to work these days.

yeah, seems kind of negative doesn't it? Seems to be from the POV of some guy who was dumped in favour of a rock star....

"But you had to bring me down for a rock'n'roll clone
Leave me like a sucker standing all alone
Did you have to run off with that rolling stone?"

rolling stone...?Maybe Brian's girl chose Mick Jagger over him?!

What did the "I Go Crazy" by 1984 sound like?

Do you think that Freddie rode his bicycle on Tour De France or what?

I've never heard of "I go Crazy," what album was it on?


It was on the B side of Radio Ga Ga which I guess makes it a little difficult to get hold of.

"I don't want to see Queen no more no more"

really left me in a daze, did they get tired of theirselves? or was this towards fans/media/whatsoever?


I thought it was more of a fan's point-of-view wish, because he was tired of his girlfriend's (or maybe boyfriend's) ability to get a backstage pass and dirty knees.
