I told recently told my husband that my next project was to learn whatever I could about Queen as I was quite mesmerized by their music. I am so thrilled you are doing this. I think you will have several avid students. When I met my husband in 1966, our first date was an opera. We married shortly thereafter, and I just never listened to rock or later pop until my profession required that I get more "with it". I started watched Idol to get a quick education and the rest is history. I got hooked on that voice. However, I can safely say I am also now hooked on Queen. I will be here learning.
Excellent!!!! I will try to do at least one a day with the exception of next Tuesday to Sunday as I'm vacationing in Ocean City with the family so I won't be able to
A few possibilities.
1st. When Sonisphere was first announced Brian and Roger asked fans what they wanted to hear. Most of the hardcore fans have been trying to get Bri and Rog to jettison some of the greatest hits to do some more obscure stuff...OR at the very least do some of the 70s stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if this was looked at because of that.
2nd. Last year was Queen's 40th anniversary so I'm not surprised they were looking back to the beginning
idn't hear any versions with a glory note at the end. Did you find it jarring or did you like it?
They never did a dramatic ending like that so it was new and unique. I liked it They try new things and see what happens at times which I like - much like the new rocking ending to Somebody To Love that they first did with Queen Extravaganza and brought over to QAL.
What's interesting is that the whole beginning medley is somewhat similar to one they did in 1984.
While QAL had Flash (with a few chords from The Hero)/Seven Seas Of Rhye/Keep Yourself Alive/We Will Rock you in 1984-85 they did a medley of Somebody To Love/Killer Queen/Seven Seas Of Rhye/KeepYourself Alive/Liar
Not quite the same but the transition between seven seas and KYA obviously are. The big difference is the "glory note" is definitely appropriate to go into WWRY fast while not as appropriate to go into Liar.
But while it did surprise me when I first saw it, I dug it
