Never thought about that, but you;re right. It's possible that he didn t refer to the computer mogul but to the fastfood mogul.
That brings uo another question: DID FREDDIE HATE KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN and BURGER KING?
ouch, oh dear... it appears Dragon Attack 's lyrics were written by BM? ( correct me if I am wrong)
So....doesn't that change the whole Game ? Maybe you are closer to the truth with BM's interest in technical stuff, eg Microsoft rather than my dumb assumption about Mc Do's Big Macs minus French fries ? I apologize. How vulgar.
On the other hand, Queen had a Krautie producer at the time , Reinhold Mack. But then, can we confirm that BM was already a vegan at the time going for Krauts or Sauerkraut ? Meh.
Maybe a hidden gay message unearthed 40 years later? Oh oh... eh ? BM in love with the Mac producer ? Twinkle twinkle. Nah.
Too bad, that producer didn't write any tell it all books to begin with, cause whatever an " inner circle" publishes is the ultimate truth.
hm,...perhaps it 's just a flashback to the Prophets song...
Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning
The Seer he said
Beware the storm that gathers here
followed up in 1980 by : "It's gotta be Mac" ? whatever :)
Listen to the wise man
It's safe to assume that he didn't like things that were small and soft.
Perhaps a competitor.
But to lyrical point.... what the hell IS Dragon Attack about? If not drugs of sort in a dance room.
Brian also deferred the notion on China Belle.
Pittrek:" So this is what the serious discussion forum has become? "
if you take a look at the nauseating speculations ( fantasies or " fan opinions" ) on some threads , then you see what this forum has become indeed. Not yesterday, but a while ago.
My lenghty idiotic reply to the OP was inspired by sheer nonsense seen here, read there and slightly adapted. No need to look any further.
Freddie definitely hated Microsoft. To the point that, when Bill Gates (in November 1983) announced the release of MS Windows 1.0, Freddie sat down and wrote his own protest song (for inclusion on Queen's 1984 LP).
The protest gathered pace and huge protest groups and picket lines gathered outside Microsoft's HQ in Seattle - chanting Freddie's song for upto 12 hrs 7-days a week:
"Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows"
His protest song, worked so well, that Windows 1.0 was delayed and delayed for almost two years - finally hitting the store shelves in November 1985!
Let's just not get off track here. Freddie was evil and in a grievous heinous manner. He had studied well the Bond films of the 60's and 70's and had espoused an evil nihilistic campaign for eliminating the very sunlight that provides us with energy necessary for all organic earthly life.
"YOU'RE TAKING ALL THE SUNSHINE AWAY"
Making out like main line
(Reference to externally sourced solar panel supported energy on the underground - LATER alluded to in the SCIENCE FICTION MASTERPIECE HIGHLANDER II)
Until the moment of death pervaded all but the selected elite
"Messing with the beat of (their) heart"
He was truly a singing siren leading humanity to peril.
I wishthe general public knew more about this but it's dangerous to even mention
Matt Z : "Let's just not get off track here...."
why then posting some entirely unrelated fantasy stuff about FM ? My reply to the OP was more than dumb, it seems you take it way further down the alley :)
