I love what you said about Days Of Our Lives. I'm a senior in high school and I've grown incredibly fond of so much here, so both of those songs mean a lot to me already, but will probably mean even more to me by the time it gets to the end of the year and a I finally purchase Innuendo in my chronological collection of Queen's discography. (That should make me like HYF a bit more too...maybe).

Days... Great sentiment to the song, and Brian pulls off the most beautiful solo...

This is not strictly Queen but I saw this today and it reminded me of this thread. He does some Brian May about halfway through.

Lol, awesome! He seems to just pick a certain recognizable solo/riff from each guitarist and play that, the one from Brian being from "A Kind Of Magic" (which works really well there).

Queen was my favorite band before I found Rush.

Queen saved my life when I was in school. I had a hard time in school, so I was listening to Queen all the time. Whitout Queen I would probably not be alive today....

I saw Queen+ Paul Rodgers live 2005. It was awesome, even thou Freddie was not there. Brian May played some awesome guitar solos. Best day in my life...

Thou when I found Rush (2011) I kinda stopped listening to Queen. Because I started to listen to more Prog Rock music.

But when Queen released their latest live album, Live At The Rainbow ´74. I found Queen again. So now I am listening to them again, at least their early albums when they played a bit more Prog Rock / Rock.

My favorite Queen studio albums is:

1. Queen II
2. Queen
3. Sheer Heart Attack
4. A Day At The Races (I just love White Man!)
5. A Night At The Opera
6. News Of The World
7. Jazz
8. The Works
9. The Game
10. Innuendo
11. The Miracle
12. A Kind Of Magic
13. The Cosmos Rock (Queen+ Paul Rodgers)
14. Hot Space
15. Made In Heaven (Not a bad album, it´s beautiful. But it´s just pieces put together really....)
16. Pre Ordained (Not many people know about this album. But it´s a album with Smile songs) (Smile is the band May and Taylor was in before Queen)
17. Flash Gordon (Great movie thou!..... ok, maybe not that good...)

My favorite Queen live albums is:
1. Live At The Rainbow ´74 (One of the best live albums ever made, even better then any live album Rush have released!)
2. At The BBC (even known as At the Beeb)
3. Live Killers
4. Live At Wembley Stadium ´86
5. Live At The Bowl

My favorite Queen live bootlegs is:
1. Queen live 1975
2. In The Mirror
3. In The Mirror Again
4. Live In Tokyo 1981

Freddie would've been 69 years young today, but God wanted that beautiful voice back at the great gig in the sky. Oh well, we'll all be up there and here Fred sing again soon enough, and this time with a real gospel choir. Happy Birthday!

My husband told me yesterday, when  I was telling him about this thread, that the lead singer of Queen is a trained opera singer.

With my husband I always employ the Ronnie Reagan method of "trust but verify."  

So I am asking you Queen adulators if what he says is right.

No. Piano lessons from 7 til 9.

But, he had a 4-octave vocal range, he was a natural baritone. He felt quite inferior to real opera stars, hence his shyness when he first met Monserrat Caballe.

Why am I not surprised he got it wrong?  :lol:

Thank you gentlemen!  

From what I can gather here, he's dead?  When did he die, and from what?

I know nothing about them except for their popular songs from the seventies mostly and early eighties, and I only owned one of their albums, so forgive my ignorance when I ask if they are no more and, if they are still around, how is their replacement singer?
