Can highly recommend this film about the band Queen.   It covers the period from 1970 to 1985 (Live Aid) and follows the trials and tribulations they suffered as a band during that period.    It is not a biopic of Freddie Mercury (although sometimes appears so).     The cast are exceptional in their roles and the film makes you laugh, cry, sing, cheer and at the end want to see it all again. 

Following this we also went to the see Roger Taylor's Queen Extravaganza at the Bonus Arena in Hull last night which was fantastic.    The band were brilliant, in particular the drummer who sang a couple of numbers in place of the lead singer.    A 3 song encore finished the evening for us.    Can recommend it if you are a Queen fan

We saw it last week. Fabulous film. I felt very emotional at the end. Definitely something that needs the big screen though.

I was at school with Brian May so, of course, had to see the film. Interestingly, at the beginning of the film they talked about the lead singer of Smile who was “Tim” who was actually Tim Staffell (see Wikipedia). Tim was at the same school and I briefly played rhythm guitar for him in his previous group The Railroaders. Fame and fortune eluded me as you may guess!
