What exactly did he do for FM and MC song? I watched google vid where Rog in 1988 says he contributed a bit on the song... thanks!

Lol, as said above, it's not Brian May. You know, many people on earth happen to have long curly hair! (+ the guy looks too small to actually be Brian)
I confirm it is Mike Moran conducting the orchestra with a fluorescent baton

It's Mike Moran (co-writer of Barcelona) conducting in the video - FACT!

Perhaps he had some lyrical input, he was good with rhymes. But that's just one of the endless possibilities.


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.

RT played the part of the drums-part in the recorded version of the song.

Thank You Mr. President :)

So this is Queen + Montserrat Caballe song then if 2 members of Queen were involved in the song :)

Same as Brian and Roger are Queen and with Paul Rodgers they're Queen + Paul Rodgers

lol

That's not true. Frank Ricoffi played the percussion there.

funnily enough i was reading this thread whilst watching Mike Moran and Lyndsey de paul murdering a song called Rock Bottom on an old Top Of The Pops2 eurovision special.He looks nothing like Brian in that clip i tell you!
but yes it is Mike in the Barcelona clip and as far as i'm aware Roger had nothing to do with the song


isnt innuendo an italian suppository?

Mike's changed a lot since Eurovision. Great contest, this year's ... I loved Serbia's act from the first moment, I'm glad they won. I loved Russia as well, and that queer in Sweden sings really well.
