5 thoughts on “Sunday Morning Video: Queen at Live Aid

  1. It’s late, and I read that as “Sunday Morning Video: Queen at Rite Aid,” which made me wonder which days of the week youcouldn’t see a queen at Rite Aid in New Orleans.
    OK, I’ll go to bed now.

  2. Saw Queen in Charlotte in the summer of ’79 (they usually toured the U.S. during cold weather, for some reason). I had high expectations going in, and they were completely blown away from the opening notes of “Jailhouse Rock.” Of COURSE Bryan May is a physicist; no mere MUSICIAN could’ve rocked the house like that.
    One of my top 5 shows. Ever. Out of hundreds. Ho. Lee. Shit.

  3. My first time seeing them live, I was prepared to be disappointed – the layering of vocals, the 16-tracks-of-single-note-guitars, the overall overkill of the albums couldn’t be reproduced live without a male choir and a dozen guitarists.
    I was right.
    But I wasn’t disappointed.
    Not one bit.
