This is a great song for a great cause…
I saw Queen + Paul Rodgers play this in 2005 in Hyde Park. Actually Paul did nothing – Roger Taylor sang it. 🙂
But now they’ve worked on it as part of their current studio sessions and have rushed it out – for free.
So download, play it, donate and tell your friends….
Now I’ve Downloaded And Listened To It
I downloaded it and listened to it a few times. As with all Queen-related things it grew on me after a few listenings. I would say it’s slower than the original 2005 version, which I wish it wasn’t. But on the other hand there’s some excellent guitar work from Brian May. No surprise there. 🙂
All three of them – Paul Rodgers, Brian May and Roger Taylor – shared the vocals. There’s some dispute in our household because I prefer Brian’s and especially Roger’s voices to Paul’s. The rest of the family don’t think much of their voices.
Roll on the album. 🙂
