March 14, 2016, 5 years ago
In the video below, Queen drummer Roger Taylor talks about how the band’s legendary album A Night At The Opera got it’s name, and recalls “performing” the album track “’39” for legendary American comedian and film/television star, Groucho Marx:
In the footage below, Queen guitarist Brian May performs a 12-string acoustic version of “’39” in the studio. The clip is taken from the A Night At The Opera 30th Anniversary DVD.
Queen’s A Night At The Odeon, Live At Hammersmith ’75, is out now on CD (Hollywood Records), and DVD & Blu-Ray (Eagle Rock Entertainment). This show was a culmination of the 26-date Queen Invite You To A Night At The Opera UK tour and the first tour that they had ever performed “Bohemian Rhapsody” on.
