A question I want to share with you all. So share your answers.

In the Live Aid performance, during Hammer To Fall, there is a voice which is heard more than the others and it's quite off-key. The bit is:

"Rich or poor or famous,
For your truth it's all the same"

HERE IT IS: Oh no oh no!"

In the "Oh noooo", someone sings it longer and off-key. Not a Brian nor Roger recognizable voice. Could it be John?

I don't remember if the DVD version of Live Aid was mixed/overdubbed differently here, but in the TV version, that off-key vocal can be easily heard.

What do you think?

One of the rare occasions that John's mic was on was at Live Aid.

I too have heard this atonal nitwit assaulting the airwaves. But it doesn't really sound like John Deacon. Damn if only the camera had been pointing at him at the time. I guess. Not.

I havent heard this in years but it may just be either Brian or Roger that went off key. Roger said recently that the sound on stage was awful and as such this might have been a contributing factor. I could be wrong though...

Any chance it might have been Linda McCartney?

Because, FriedChicken, some people do have a life outside QZ, and sometimes miss some topics.

I come here quite often and never came across this particular subject.

Nevertheless it was asked politely, so you could just ignore it, instaed of losing 1 minute to complain. Does this offend you so much?

Spike's voice isn't bad, but it's definitely not appropriate for a Queen concert imo. (Of course, I'm speaking about Queen, not about Brian, Roger + Paul Rodgers)


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think Spikes voice fits better in Queen than in Queen & Paul Rodgers.

cause the harmonies sucked on stage back then.. very much!

"Spike's voice isn't bad, but it's definitely not appropriate for a Queen concert imo. (Of course, I'm speaking about Queen, not about Brian, Roger + Paul Rodgers)"

vs.

"Sebastian...you again...Brian and Roger are QUEEN!!"

Verdict - you both suck. No one cares about Q+PR being Queen or not. No one worth listening to anyway. This is a yarn about Live Aid, is it not?!

Saying of which - I love the story about The Who kicking in the lights on the stage that were colour-coded to represent '5 minutes left', 'get off now' and so forth... that fucking cracks me up.
