Bohemian Rhapsody Movie Facts & Fiction – Is This The Real Life ? or Just Fantasy
This video is not setting out to criticise the movie but create a discussion about the things die hard Queens noticed
In this video we look at the facts and the fiction of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie. the film did a great job of Of making a long story short. But had to play fast and loose with some of the facts surrounding the rise of Queens popularity
The beginnings of Queen seem to take place all in one night according to the movie where the reality is Freddie Mercury had known Brian May Roger `Taylor and Mary Austin for some time before forming Queen. John Deacon was actually the 4th in a line of bass players including Barry Mitchell Mike Grose And Doug Bogie.
The movie omits the first Queen album which failed to chart and only on a second album Queen II which spawned the hit Seven Seas Of Rhye.
By the 3rd album Sheer Heart Attack Queen recorded Killer Queen and Now I’m Here all while Brian May had a stint in hospital with hepatitis.
The movie also gives the impression Queen had broke up due to Freddie recording the Mr Bad Guy album. the truth is Queen never had a problem with solo project as Roger Taylor already had two solo albums out Fun In Space And Strange Frontier.
John Reid was never sacked and Freddie was never diagnosed with AIDS until 1987 after the Magic Tour Of 1986 and the Kind Of Magic Album.
1989 saw The Miracle Album where they agreed to share writing credits as was the case on the 1991 album Innuendo
The timeline of We Will Rock You, Love Of My Life Rio 85 and Fat Bottomed Girls has been well documented as being wrong
