Apparently the director wanted the entire band to stick closer together while filming and since they were using the JAZZ tour stage for the shoot Brian would have preferred them being as they are onstage (live) and using the entire set for the shoot and not just center stage. I can see his point because with such a great stage and lighting rig none of it was really justified in the video.
easily One of my personal favorites, but what's the big deal?.....Brian doesn't have to like every song written by freddie, roger and john. I'm sure freddie wasn't crazy about every single song written by brian. It's not a big deal.
Funnily enough there was a repeat of Top Gear on BBC3 earlier talking about the top 5 songs being voted for and DSMN was shown. Pretty cool.
Btw, don't read too much into Jeremy's comment as he's always taking the piss and using sarcasm. Brian doesn't really hate the song. Someone posted a thread about this in the last year and it was found to be bumpkuss. Unfortunately, this rumour still manages to show up.
"Don't Stop Me Now" I have always thought was a great video. I liked the fact they are closer on the stage. It's one of those songs when I first discovered Queen and the song I wasn't too keen on it but over the years I've grown to like it more and more. Now that this has been brought up though I would like to ask a question I've always wondered......What is the shirt that Freddie has on in the video say on it? It looks as though its a t shirt with some band's name on it. The first couple of letters seem to spell TEST.....something or other. I know its a minor thing but I pick up on weird shit like that......
