Yesterday I was watching the toon 2112 video on YouTube and I though: in 1976 Queen were on a US tour, so Freddie could technically visit Rush studio and record his version of the 2112 titletrack.

 

Would you be curious to listen this imaginary version?

Freddy could have pulled it off, and it would be an excellent cover version.

Exactly, while Geddy is an acquired taste for many he is part of that excellent whole. There is nothing about 2112 indicating it is out of Freddy’s range. I’d like to hear some young Mercury “clone” pull it off, that would be fun.

Only Geddy gets to sing 2112! (I read it, somewhere - but definitely an authority) 

And I would not want Geddy to sing Bohemian Rhapsody.

 

I would not want Brian May to play Alex's parts.

And I would not want Brian to tune a guitar beside a stream, wondering about how its string make sounds.

 

Yes, musicians are able to play each other's music - but shame! 2112?! Nobody touches that :smile:

 

Getting old, I guess :old:
