I love Queen more than I love Elton John, but I love Rocketman more than Bohemian Rhapsody. It should’ve been R rated. I guess Brian and Roger didn’t have the balls to put in the realism and truth like Elton and Bernie did

I'd love to see you do a History Buffs video about Frank W. Abagnale Jr. as portrayed in Steven Spielberg's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. Love your channel! Your videos on GOODFELLAS and BRAVEHEART are the kind I share with friends and family.

One thing I wish Rhapsody covered was how Freddie punched Simon Ferocious after Skaggy Sidney had the nerve to mockingly ask Freddie whether he'd bring Ballet To The Masses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Queen were delighted to get onto Top Of The Pops as that was the great vehicle which propelled all the major acts back in the day. The last thing they would have done at the BBC studios would have been to complain about miming because if they did they would have quickly been shown the door.

U should’ve spoke about how several other bands had released longer songs. Like Hey Jude and Stairway to Heaven years before. They act like they’re the first to write a long song...

@ShadowCat I will concede the point that the Beatles were the biggest band the world had ever seen for quite some time before they released it, but they could’ve mentioned it. He could’ve said, “what about hey Jude?” To which the exec would say ur not the Beatles! Also that train wreck MacArthur park was like a year long

That really bugged me in the film. Hey Jude held the record for longest run at #1 and it was seven minutes, but it’s never mentioned.

Queen is so mediocre and derivative, they can be someone’s favorite band and I’m fine with that, but I don’t feel like it’s even arguable that they are the greatest rock band ever. If they’re even top ten.

Thats just your personal taste , and i won't argue with what you think , but when you take into account the number of record sold , they are one of the biggest bands ever.

In Toronto, Canada, there is Q107 Classic Rock radio. When I was a teenager (I don't know if they still do this) they would hold a poll in the month of July. You could phone in, mail, or use the website to vote for what you believed was the greatest rock song of all time. In the month of August they would count down 500 songs over the course of a week, ending with the top 10 on Sunday afternoon. The top 2 positions were always always ALWAYS a battle between Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody.

Despite my criticism, I think that this is very well put together. Good job ! I was 13 when A night at the Opera was released, I absolutely loved it and my GF and I really enjoyed the film. But seeing how things reported here "actually" occurred, I am certain that the film would have been even better being presented in an honest chronological order. Looking forward to viewing the 2nd half of your video. -VG

The scene where the audience sings Love of my life... Can you imagine the feelings of the song writer who has witnesses this ? Kind of brings a chill down my spine.
Vicarious Gamer

I think that maybe you might consider that once one feels that they have a bit of power under their name, they will always become what their name represents. Power does that and it doesn't matter whether they are political leaders, musicians, business owners, or you tube presenters. Thus becoming "that" person you approve or disapprove of. This is inevitable. Hence the old but true statement... Power promotes corruption, suspect all who seek it.

Oh come on. It was all right. They did have to cram in what, 30+ years into two hours? There is a couple of really good docs for the real McCoy. To me, it gave lot of younger people exposure to Queen. Now, how can that be bad?🤷‍♀️. (I’ve been a fan since ‘74). I’ve never seen such excitement for Queen since the 80’s. In the US, anyway. I know they’re gods in England, and rightfully so. Freddy died before most of the people who saw the movie were even born. Now they love him.

Interesting to see that journalists were the same worthless, parasitic leeches they still are to this day. What’s the thought process like? “I have no talent, no skills, no values, less dignity than a prostitute, and I want reality to be what I want it to be so that I can hide that I contribute to nothing in this world”?

Im glad that you did Bohemian Rhapsody, because think the history aspect is more important to this movie than most. It could have either been a movie with a 3 act structure or a recreation/celebration of queen(well mostly Freddie Mercury's) career, in my opinion the movie didn't really stick to either all the way but it definitely dropped the ball on the historical angle.

I drought you will ever see this comment but you should cover the film Tucker: The Man and His Dream. It tells the true story of Preston Tucker. He is a grandiose schemer with a new dream, to produce the best cars ever made. He created the almost Tesla of the 1940s. I really enjoyed watching it in my history class and I think you would enjoy it too.

Like “did these specific people really exits or are they just works of well crafted fiction?” Either way would be really cool to see a series on that someday!

I went back and rewatched a lot of your videos, it keeps me entertained during these trying times. I especially loved your Casino and Goodfellas and was wondering if you would ever consider doing Bugsy? I would really love to see your take on that movie.

This movie was simply frustrating for anyone that knows a little bit of Queen history. This movie also shows how it can be a very bad idea to have band member as executive producers. Brian May and Roger Taylor made themselves appear more like saints. Roger Taylor himself was a well known party animal, womanizer and coke user. Ironically despite some of their partying Queen was definitely not the worst when it came to these things. The only Queen member who really developed problems was John Deacon with his drinking. Freddie Mercury was a very dedicated musician, according to their sound engineers and producers he spent the the most time in the studio out of everyone. In the movie it appears as if he is always late, and as if he never spends time in the studio. You can understand how a movie might not always be accurate, but the worst part of the movie by far was how they pretended as if Freddie broke up the band to do a solo album. Queen never broke up. Freddie Mercury's first priority was always Queen, he took two years to record his solo album because he did the Queen album - The Works in-between, and Queen did a whole world wide, The Works tour. The highlight of the tour was the Rock In Rio Festival, where they played for a massive audience of almost 400k people. Queen did well at Live Aid, because the band was in good form, The Works tour had ended 5 weeks before Live Aid. It is ridiculous to think that band who has not played together for years, are suddenly going to steal the show at such a big event. That is basically what happened to Led Zeppelin, they performed at Live Aid, but they had not played together for years, and it was pretty bad. Freddie did not even promote his solo album, Roger did more promotion for his solo albums. Freddie's solo albums were not as unsuccessful and Brian May and Roger Taylor like to pretend. After Freddie's death they took some of his solo material and rerecorded it with their own instrumentation. So they obviously did think it was that bad, if they still used the material. The way in which Freddie was represented as selfish jerk during this section especially was incredibly unfair and grating to watch.
