Does Anyone know who played guitar on the Brian Malouf remix of "The Great Pretender" from the CD of the same name from the FM boxset?

Just curious as it sounds a bit like a poor man's version of the guv'nor himself, Brian May...

How I would have liked to have heard a proper Queen version of this song and "In My Defence" - another song that would have benefited from a proper Queen sound.

*edit*...sorry I'm wrong - I was looking at 'Mr Bad Guy' and not 'Great Pretender'

Probably just your random sessionguitarist.
They rarely get credits, so we will most likely never find out! ;-)

Anyway it was not someone familiar ;-)

Julian Raymond perhaps (he played on guitar on some other albums released by HR in the early 90s as well)... Brian Malouf was a drummer in his youth, but he also can play all instruments (keyboards, bass, drums, guitar).
