Now what? My next fix is probably not till September, when Roger Waters comes to town... I didn't go to Queen & PR concert, because of PR, though I really love Roger and Brian. May be I should have gone. PR does their rockiest, choppiest songs OK (like We Will Rock You), but when he's trying to do Freddie's "this voice floods the Earth" actual melodic singing vocals songs, he just sucks. Freddie's 60th birthday is on September 5th, and I do hope the world will be celebrating. I personally will drink champagne and watch early Queen videos all day... I know that I won't be able to see my biggest indie love Three Mile Pilot playing live for the 1st time in 8 years (Chicago, Sept.8-10, Touch-n-Go 25th anniversary), so I cannot even get excited over it. Good for Chicago, damn it!
All I've left to do now is continue collecting pictures... and watch Back Chat... I got addicted to that video, I don't care that it's "too disco to be real Queen" and it doesn't have the Red Special - it works as a mild antidepressant for me, it really does. All four queenies look fabulous, if you just disregard Freddie's mustache. He's performing an excellent complete body workout, and some quirky singing, which fits the song so flawlessly. And a sweet, achy guitar solo from very serious Brian, and Roger looking indeed like Luke Skywalker. Easily the best song by John Deacon (everyone else would name Another One Bites the Dust as his best, but I don't care, so bite me!)
