.. what would it be?
Mine would be one from one of those 'hated Queen song' threads. Loser in the End, its basically just a riff but with 'walky' parts all the way through, it jumps around so much.. maybe the first time John just sacked it all off and messed about doing his thing.. and no one told him off for it...
I know this is not exactly what was asked but as it is the only Deacon thread... I think he is a great bass player, however always wanted to know why he so often seen in gigs licking his right hand fingers?

^^^^ he used to wax his strings, being mainly a finger style, as opposed to a pick player, maybe this helped produce a smoother less abrasive feel on his finger tips, so yeah he think the finger licking was part of the same thing.

Milliionaire Waltz I would pick as well, though this guy does a really good job showing off John's ability to use the whole of the fretboard and come up with some really good and interesting stuff. :)
This guy is a close friend of mine! He will be happy to be mentioned at Queenzone, gonna show him your post. :P
Oscar, thanks for your comment! This video is 6 years old, I believe that today we would do a better job, but still a good video. Unfortunately, Youtube isn't really nice to people and he stopped recording bass covers because lots of his videos were taken down by the copyright guys. :'(
