Does anybody know many octaves Roger could lift his voice?

No. I also hate those sharp/bright colours, like yellow.

Recorded: low D to high E (without falsetto), and to high C with falsetto

But it doesn't mean he couldn't get higher than that...


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.

Sebastian, when you say High C, you mean one tone above the Bb he sang in the opera finale (for me, for meeeeeee") of BohRhap?

If so, where did he sang that high C?

Oh...

and the high E (Without falsetto), is it the same note Freddie sang in Innuendo ("till the eeend of time") ?

Anyway, examples are appreciated. Thank you very much. ;)

Yes I mean two semitones higher than that - 'Seaside Rendezvous', trumpet part.

> and the high E (Without falsetto), is it the same note Freddie sang in Innuendo ("till the eeend of time") ?

I think the one in 'Innuendo' is Eb, so Roger's E is higher. He hit it, for instance, in 'More Of That Jazz' (the final "no MORE"), without falsetto.

> By "High C", you mean C5 ? - the C above middle C.

I should have said "overhigh C" then :)

And Roger could sing very low too - listen to him in 'I Wanna Testify'. The low D (D1) is found in 'Action This Day' (he does octave vocals there).

Fred did a low C in 'Leroy Brown', and a low E in 'All God's People'.

Roger said himself, that he believed he was on a high F in Bo Rhap.
Gotta test that...

I read somewhere (on wikipedia I think) that on '39 Brian wanted Roger to sing REALLY high but he refused and I think the highest he went was an A or something...I can't quiet remember though...

I have only just started to learnt note values in music so at the moment, it means nothing to me! =]]

a soprano high C may be possible when we remember Roger's falsetto ability. But i don't see a LOW D possible .. it's a bass note and just can't remember if it's been hit in any song of queen by any member?

Yes, low D doesn't seem quite right. Or why do I even care?
