At the moment,I know definitely Im their idols lol.Wake up Louise it was only a dream.Only jokin.I havent a breeze!!!
Didnt one record company turn them down once and said "We dont want another Led Zeppelin, sorry"
I read it somewhere on one of my Queen biography books, cant remember what one though.
Would anyone ever compare Queen to Led Zeppelin?
FM - Jimi Hendrix, Liza Minnelli, Aretha Franklin, Monserat Caballe, Elvis, Beatles.
BM - Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Hank Marvin(The Shadows), Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton.
RT - Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Little Richard, Elvis, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who.
JD - The Jacksons, Earth-Wind&Fire, The Police.
They mention too many sources of influence to list but I know some of the really big ones were:
Freddie: Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Who, Aretha Franklin, etc.
Brian: Jeff Beck, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, etc.
Roger: The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, etc.(not sure of his favorites.
John: The only specific I have heard about his tastes is that he was a huge fan of The Police.
All I Hear Is Radio Gaga wrote: Freddie loved Aretha Franklin
Roger loved Led Zeppelin
Yeah, Freddie was a big Aretha Franklin fan, he also liked Liza Minnelli, Marliyn Monroe, Mae West, Elizabeth Taylor, etc. (Yeah, I know they werent recording artist, but he stil liked them nontheless) I was watching my Queen live at the Bowl DVD yesterday, and he was singing with the crowd like he always does, and he was telling the crowd 'sing it like Aretha Franklin!' lol...thats one of the many parts that made me laugh on the DVD!!!
