This week’s episode of Queen the Greatest Live brings fans back to the Rainbow Theater in London’s Finsbury Park.
The year was 1974 and the band were finally up and running after supporting Mott The Hoople at the 3000 seat venue the previous year.
What is unusual is that this is the first time that Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon have been made into a professional live film.
The guitarist told Mojo in 2013: “When I see the footage of us from those shows now, I see so much confidence and adrenalin.
“And I think, ‘My God, we were such impatient boys.'”
Queen have been promoting their new album Sheer Heart Attack and today’s clip shows the live performance of Stone Cold Crazy.
An accompanying caption highlights: “As Roger counted in the band with a bellowed proto-punk ‘1-2-3-4!’, Freddie played his rapid-fire vocals without missing a syllable as Brian’s guitar solo scaled the heights the. neck Red Special, this peak from Sheer Heart Attack has never been so high.”
When the live album was released in 2014, Roger said: “When I listen to Queen At The Rainbow now, it’s amazing. I had forgotten how heavy we were with things like Stone Cold Crazy and Flick Of The Wrist. We weren’t a pop band. We were like Led Zeppelin with harmonies…”
In next week’s episode of Queen The Greatest Live, a look back at the band’s greatest hits.
