The band are simply on fire at this show like they were in Vancouver, and the outrageously enthusiastic audience creates a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Freddie sounds strong tonight, and the mild California air just may have something to do with it.
Brian speaks after Let Me Entertain You: “We’re going to do our best to entertain you in Oakland tonight. We’d like to sing you a song from some time ago. This is a Mercury song called Somebody To Love.”
1979 Queen receive a prize for the album “News Of The World”. In the pictures with them a 17 year old young fan named Manuela Scarpel. Then Manuala studied in Zurich, and was the winner of a Gold Record of Queen match, in a week they organized the meeting with the band at the Hallenstadion in Zurich . Manuela was joined by her father Tomaso, Queen fans who followed the band wherever they played.
He was very proud of his daughter to see her so happy with a shining light in her eyes. Manuela has a Queen room where she hangs the disc in the middle of the wall and her record collection everywhere. The father remembers how friendly they were to them, even though he and his wife didn’t speak English, but the daughter translated it for them. Manuela is now an adult, and she keeps that record as if it were a relic, and still moves to this day to remember that beautiful night. Thank you for these wonderful testimonials.
Freddie knew he wanted to be a singer in a band, he just needed to find a band to accept him. In reality, he was already a huge fan of Brian May and Roger Taylor’s band, Smile and used to follow their gigs and sing along. When the idea of Freddie joining was suggested, Brian immediately shot it down. Was Freddie too outrageous, too difficult, not talented enough?
The answer lies back in their earliest days. In the late 1960’s they were all students but hooked into a vibrant emerging music scene in West London.
Freddie had toyed with starting a band at Ealing Art college but nothing came of it. He was scribbling song ideas and melodies on scraps of paper and hanging around The Kensington Tavern on Elsham Road, where Smile used to play.
Tim Staffell and Brian May started the band and recruited Roger Taylor and then keyboard player Chris Smith.
