A Question of Queen (...Revisited)

Okey dokey.

Quick one to get it going.

What solo single release by a band member, shared a commonality with the 7" picture disc release of 'Let Me Live', in that it was 45 rpm on the A side, and 33 rpm on the B side?

Well done, that IS the correct answer, Mr Lemon.

Don't know if you know the drill, but it's your turn to set a question. Make it as hard as you like, as the Bishop said to the actr.... err, OK, choirboy then, but not impossibly difficult. Game on.

that'll teach me to keep my mouth shut!!

Blimey, a question... urhhhh... let me think...

How about: when Queen signed the book at the British consulate in Budapest (1986), why do John, Roger and Brian laugh at Freddie's signature?

Don't know the answer, but I'll guess it's something like "The Queen - Freddie" or "HRH Freddie Mercury"

This is what was written:

Name: Address:
Brian Harold May Queen land
Freddie Mercury "
Roger Taylor London

You can find a photo of this in the Queen A Magic tour photo book by Denis O'Regan (published 1987 - ISBN 0-283-99488-6)

Hollywood have only released a very small number of Queen singles on 7". What songs are on them?

Considering Queen signed with Hollywood in 1990, all Innuendo US released singles (These are the days of our lives, Headlong, I'm going slightly mad, Innuendo, The Show must go on) and I suppose the Freddie Tribute release of Bohemian Rhapsody. And from Made in Heaven.

Correct Erin.

I was quite surprised all the other American Innuendo and MIH singles had CD and/or cassette releases, YDFM had a 12", but apart from the two you mentioned, nothing on 7", not as far as I know, anyway.

Not the T.E. Conway Retro Rock EP?

(Brian's alter ego for a four track cover version EP)
