Amazing what a meal and some drinks can do! In the case of Queen and David Bowie, it helped yield one of rock and roll’s greatest duets.
35 years ago, Queen and The Thin White Duke got together on a spur of the moment and began jamming away what would ultimately become the classic “UnderPressure”.
And now comes word that there may be some more odds and ends from that inspired session that may come out in the not too distant future. Credit John Deacon for coming up with the legendary bass line! And an assist from Roger Taylor for remembering it after Deaky forgot it, as discussed by Brian May.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
