In case you'd never read the notes. A talented actor, musician and songwriter. This clip is perhaps his finest work aside from helping to write Freddie's song. The one and only Jeff Daniels.

I seriously hope you don't mean this.

Yeah until proven otherwise I must assume it's the same Jeff. He's well known as a songwriter as well as actor

I believe this to be true as well. Here is a link for reference, i know it doesn't mention 'In my defence' but he has wrote alot of famous songs since the 70's. Plus the fact that he has been involved in Broadway and theater for a long time makes me think this could be true.

I'll send him an email. I don't believe it's the same Jeff Daniels.


There are more songwriters called Jeff Daniels

It's not the same Jeff Daniels. The Jeff Daniels who co-wrote Time is a good friend of mine and until last week has been living here in Houston, Tx for the last seven or eight years. He had some great stories about the creation of Time and going to visit Freddie in his apartment in Germany. According to him, Cliff Richards wanted to do In My Defense for the soundtrack album - but Freddie insisted that he wanted to record it.
Hope this helps. I'm going to pass on to him that you guys are talking about him. He will be thrilled!

Yeah. Isn't he great? I remember when he was on Saturday Night Live after the movie came out, and there was this segment where Chris Farley was interviewing him and like after every question or everytime he'd reference his acting career they'd cut to this same clip to annoy Jeff. It was hilarious.

I miss Chris :(

You guys are so jaded by people posting bogus stories on here that you can't tell when someone posts a real one.

So here's the deal. I'm in the music business and live here in Houston. A few years ago Jeff Daniels contacted me. He had just moved here from England with his wife who works for a consulate and wanted to connect with people in Houston that worked in music. I think I was one of a handful of people here in town that knew about Time. I went home and pulled out my copy of Time and sure enough there was the name Jeff Daniels - I freaked out. We met at a British pub, drank a lot of beer, and became good friends. Like I said, he has a lot of great stories - some of which I won't repeat!

He and his wife moved to New York just last week and I will miss him.

I've never posted on here until today - but felt compelled to seeing how you guys are mixing him up with the actor.

So there it is. I will still pass on to him that he became a topic on Queenzone.

These posts can't be passed as bogus until visual proof is shown, just because you come here and say this isn't true doesn't change their minds. Nothing personal, but at this site, without visual proof, it means nothing. If there is a pic of the 3 of them in the box set, i don't see it, and i have the set.
