I've never seen Queen. I heard they used to put on a great show and Freddy was a flamboyant showman. I remember when "Bohemian Rhapsody" came out. I was prety young then. I still have the 45. I always love that stanza near the end where Brian May kicks into that heavy guitar.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby - can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here


Ah, little Fireball's first headbangin' experience! lol.

They entertained me with some colorful songs like "Fat Bottom Girls", "Flash", and that whole bicycle thing. It was b/c of "Under Pressure" that I got into Bowie.

While these were some serious musicians playing some silly songs, I didn't really appreciate everything this band was until Mercury's final effort, "Innuendo". Freddy wrote this album knowing full well that he was dying. He put every last drop of creative energy into it and it shows. The final track on this album, "The Show Must Go On" is touching as Freddy's last words.


While the passing of Queen's Freddy Mercury is a loss to the music world, the passing of the Dead's Jerry Garcia impacted a whole subculture. When Jerry first died I joked that there were all these Deadheads standing around confused saying "Now What?".

True Deadheads were more like deciphals than fans. Get in a van and follow the Dead from town to town. This sort of cracked me up. I thought these people were way too fried and should get a grip. My first Dead show bugged me out because of them. Way too freaky for me. lol. The Circus is in Town! After a few more shows and a Jerry solo gig I got used to them. lol.



"Sunshine Day Dream"

Still I've always liked their tunes.

When I think of the Grateful Dead I think of one of my pledge brothers from college who overexposed me to the band. He's the guy who dragged me to my first show. He turned out to be a long time friend. For an engagement present, he and his wife gave me a basket filled with bootleg tapes and a photo of Bob Weir. So typical of him. lol. (I never did get married :-) ) A few years ago Jeff was taken by Leukemia. Every spring since then I plant a patch of "Scarlet Bergonias" in my garden. That was his favorite Dead song.

So my vote goes to the Dead.
This one's for you Jeff. ;-D
Miss ya! :,-(

Queen - '39


In the year of '39 assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and misty morn
The sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew.

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The Volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh
And the earth is old and grey, to a new home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone and I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me.
Write your letters in the sand

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All your letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand

All my life
Still ahead
Pity Me.

I am not, nor have I ever been, a Dead Head, sharing a tub of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia is the closest that I've ever gotten. I guess they are cool, I just never got them. I'm sure that WKelly or Fireball Express will tell us how great they are (or how much they suck - those guys never sit on the fence)

How right you are....I hate them both :-P

Nothing stupider than a 60 year old guy with a pot-belly, ponytail, and I tie-dyed shirt :-b

On a side note, I heard Paul Rogers of "Bad Company" fame is joining Queen 8-o

1) I disagree. Kiss in makeup at their age is way worse.
2) Where did you hear that? That would be cool.

What an injustice - losing to Queen.


This is simply wrong.
