I'm not dissing any bands, from this time or past. Sabbath was amazing. The same could be said of Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Zepp, many metal bands of the 80's. I just don't think there was a syncronicity that existed with Queen. They could go heavy, they could go light, they could just entertain. You know them from:

Under pressure:



And Bohemian Rhapsody:



Even We will Rock You/ Champions:



But do you know Queen? The early stuff?

Father to son:



Ogre Battle:



Don't Stop Me Now:



How about Somebody to Love?



And Killer Queen:



One of my fav's Stone Cold Crazy:



They can play light when needed, 39:



They just play together well.

I'll leave you with Tie Your Mother Down:



Or, Who Wants to Live Forever:



Freddie was right, only death would part the band. He's been gone for 16 years but the music remains.

As Freddie mentions at the beginning of this song, "Do want something lighter or heavier?" They can do both, WELL!



Btw, who else but Freddie could get away with that ridiculous outfit?

Btw pt. 2. I just saw the pic at the end of my last post. Is that a UFO in the Freddie pic?

Intrepid!

I saw a 'documentary' on Freddie Mercury just the other night.

I didn't know that he was from India. (Talk about poor beginnings..)

This guy's vocals were amazing!

I bought my 1st Queen album in the late 1970's.

I grew up with Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust, We Are The Champions, The Game, etc.

I was born in '66, so in 1980, I was 14, when I got into the full swing of things with Queen.

In 1980, my second album was given to me for Christmas:The Game

I didn't care if Dear ol' Freddie was homosexual or not, I listened to, and bought Queens music...just for the music

Intrepid, these guys are Classic!

The first Queen albums I ever listened to (that's right, albums, as in, on a record player!) were Jazz and the one with that giant Robot on the cover. I can never remember the name of it. Anyway, that was my first taste of Queen, and I became a HUGE fan.

I've got the 3 disc Greatest Hits collection handy all the time, and one of my all time favorites from Queen had to have been the theme from Flash Gordon.

How awesome is that song?!

Another one would have to be "Don't Stop Me Now". That one is simply amazing, and every time it comes on, I rock out to it.

Gads, I know I am a traitor to my sex but one of my favorite Queen songs is Fat Bottom Girls. I remember road trips with this song blaring and four very out of tune friends singing at the top of their lungs. :shk:



Nice thread

Just to clear a couple of things up.

Freddie's family were actually quite wealthy and he enjoyed a privileged childhood.

Also, technically he was bi sexual, not homosexual.


QUEEN ROCK

Queen were an amazing band and their music will be awesome forever.

Highlander would have sucked without the Queen soundtrack.

Many hiking trips would have sucked with out Queen around the campfire! We kept some girl guides up all night with our rocking!! Nudge nudge!!

Queen also pioneered videos. These guys were a serious endeavor. This song, one of their first hits, goes to show that EVERY member contributed to the bands success.

Keep Yourself Alive:

I just want to point out what may have been missed in the passage of time. Early tunes. It gives you an understanding of where these guys came from and what lead to their greatness. Here's another:

The Seven Seas of Rhye:

That was the first 3 albums, yes albums. Then came A Night at the Opera, the one with Bohemian Rhapsody. That changed everything. There were other songs on that though. We've already done Death on Two legs and 39. What about John Deacon's best effort?

You're my best Friend:



You've heard it.

And Love of my Life:

Then A Day at the Races(another Marx Brothers reference), another HUGE album.

Tie Your Mother Down:



Somebody to Love:



More funky stuff.

Good Old Fashioned Loverboy:
