    Having read a lot in queen I think you are pretty much spot on.

    Enjoyed reading that . That they sounded ( Freddie's voice and the harmonies, and the tone of Brians guitar) and looked like nobody else, is what struck me when I was growing up. I'm off to see it (for a second time) at the weekend. Can't wait.

  3. @foggy thanks for sharing, nice read.

    I agree with you that Live Aid was the perfect climax.

    And I think you've hit the nail on the head with how the Wembley footage is so emotional.

    In 85 I think our family telly was 26in. Seeing the footage re-enacted in IMAX is simply awesome.

    And that "helicopter" shot that sweeps down and across the crowd before going around the stage... Wow!

    Saw it again tonight. The sound was fucked so the guitar parts were all muted. Which was a shame. And some knob sitting behind commentated to his lass all the way through.

    First music I can remember was Star Wars but the first song I remember was Radio Ga-Ga - thought Freddie was the toughest bastard in the world when i first saw that video.

    The original written lyrics to that and others are on display on Carnaby Street:
