Don't now if it has been mentioned before;
If you listen to the song Blag from Smile, after approx. two minutes Brian starts a guitar solo which sounds very similar to some things he does in Brighton Rock...Funny to see that Brian only has this one guitar solo, (during queen and solo and qpr tours)

Yeah, and it is nothing more then just strumming a muted open E-string in the same tempo!

Btw... this is not the kind of post we're used to from you, radio_what's_new! ;-)))

He has been developing that solo for almost 40 years and i think he´s not happy yet!

He will continue till the day he dies. Then we (fans) just have to listen to all the recordings of that song and choose the definitive version.

I go for the Wembley 86.

Take care

Live Killers 1979 version. Holy shit if that is real without any overdubs then it's possibly the greatest version of all time!

I like that Brian does the same/similar solos on every gig. I like the tradition and history behind it, makes it more special.


Wo ist das kamerahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

He's admitted many times that he'd been working on the music for some time before it found it's place on SHA.

Oh god here we again with Mr. Premature, get a life! When you come up with something better, then you can make that statement. If it's so bad than why do millions of ppl enjoy it? You think that everyone should agree with your opinions, like if ThomasQuinn said it, it must be written in stone. If you dislike Queen, and the ppl here, why don't you just leave? It is as easy as that, but no you have to put down everyone in your path just because NOT everyone agrees with your ingorant BS.

A) I can state an opinion. There's nothing more I did. I don't dislike Queen, that's your sick mind imagining things. If I did, would I say Brian could do better? No, I'd say he's shitty, but I didn't

B) I can give you dozens of examples of better solos, AND I could write a better solo. Why? Because Brian made it extremely easy on himself, by making his solo 95% effects and 5% effort.

Seriously, a new level of insane has been reached. I'm being accused of totalitarianism because I say a specific solo sucks. I think that about puts your posts in perspective, YSM.

I agree with Caspar here. And to be honest - too many of Brian's "improvised" live solos are boring a little bit... On one night he plays it just because he MUST play long solo and on other night it could be 2-3 mins of masterpiece and then again 6 mins of boring noises (though I like some of such noises made by other guitarists sometimes)...
