Personality Crisis does Queen

I’m listening to the most recent episode of Personality Crisis from my outlaw RSS podcast feed. Queen is playing (played?) Atlanta this week, so Jon did a show with a lot of Queen (still going, so I don’t know if all 2 hours were nothing but.) This is seriously good stuff, not the tired things like “Bohemian Rhapsody” that you’ve heard 17,000 times on classic rock radio. Think “Tie Your Mother Down”, “Ogre Battle”, “Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon/I’m In Love with My Car”, etc. I think I’d put Queen at the very top of 70’s bands that I care about, or possibly tied with Cheap Trick. Although there are half a dozen songs that get played over and over on radio, it’s easy to forget that there are so many good albums loaded with good songs top to bottom.

If you want to hear this, you have until Sunday night March 12, 2006 when it gets overwritten in the archive by the next show.

    Having a “Queen” epiphany are we? I love the early stuff(Liar, Keep Yourslef Alive) or basically more Brian in the mix less Freddie. Love that Cheap Trick-saw them in Tucson back in ’78-kicked ass. Do you remember a really cool band called the Shoes from Zion ,IL?

    For a long time, Jazz was my “mad” album. When I was pissed at something, I’d go home and crank up Jazz and let the rage finish and the soothing begin. Hitting the “loudness” button in the middle of “Mustapha” has always been very satisfying…

    YES! I listened to the whole show earlier this week — fantastic! I got hip to Queen late in their career (The Game), but that album is tattooed on my brain and I was singing right along with “Need Your Loving Tonight”.

    ‘I’m in Love With My Car’ (Roger Taylor singing) is one of my favorite songs of all time. Also, I wore the grooves out on my vinyl copy of ‘News of The World’ in high school.Thanks for turning me on to that rss feed.
