I met Brian two days before my 23rd bday...10/17/93. It was on his tour for Back To The Light and he signed a bunch of stuff for me. He's a really nice guy. Cozy Powell was his drummer and got to hang out with him too and he shared some Blackmore stories.

Somewhere here floating around is another quote of FZ saying he liked Queen, especially Brian May. "He's fantastic" Musta been mid seventies - when they WERE quite unique, I think.<br>AND, for that, FZ played Killer Queen in some radio show he hosted. Dunno the date or station though... ::)

i agree that bmay sometimes slipped awfully bad with some of queen's worst jobs, specially the last albums which i've never heard in fact... but i really think he is a great guitar player that has always taken his duty very seriously and that has helped him achieve great moments in rock music... i mean, he may be mainstream, and he may sing corny ballads or so, but also when he ever wanted to sound heavy, he sounded as heavy as any iommi, page, blackmore or so... listen to their first records and forget about the 'nice' songs...<br>and yes, seems like fzappa mentioned him in an interview saying even "i think he is really excellent"...<br>so if someone as outstanding as frank zappa recognizes bmay work, then i don't know why can't we do it

I like lots of things by Queen. I don't have any of their albums, although the  first LP album I've asked for my parents was "Flash Gordon" (I must have been around 6 yo then)... I know lot's of it becasuse my brother used to listen to it in my teens...<br><br>I really like Brian's sound, as said above, really reconiseble and personal guitar sound. I don't think The figaro line is stupid... I don't really care how his asshole smells  ;D...

No two individual universes's are alike. Our own perceptions of matter in other words.
How we perceive anything is purely an individual distinction.
Sure, we can try our best to relate our experiences. However, the end result is to be absolutely comfortable in our own bubble and to be most open minded to how another individual is trying to explain what is in their own bubble...

For me, that's the key to universal understanding, regardless what is written or spoken...

Maybe this thread is not the place for this post...
Does it really matter?

But the interesting thing is that AC/DC wasn't popular at that point (it was before Highway to Hell).

It was in the Guitar Player interview from 1976 (FZ's on the cover with the Hendrix Strat) that FZ complemented Brian May. He also complemented Wes Montgomery in the same paragraph.

The first Queen album kicks ass...highly recomended if you like hard rock. Don't care much for their pop and disco hits. Though, Night at the Opera has some interesting things besides "Bohemian Rhapsody".
