bicaz:

This is the best instrumental break you will ever hear in your life – White Queen live at Hammersmith, 1975

– the way brians gutar sounds like its wailing
– and the way it blends with freddies piano
– roger somehow making his drums have pitch and musicality and the way hes moving to the rhythm 
– deakys bass notes and riffs every crescendo that are so resonant it feels like youre at the odeon
– the camera angles
– the glam rock aesthetic
– the drop when its just 4 single chords with rog killing the drum breaks inbetween
– the way theyre all so into the music it feels like. a ceremony??
– the truly magnificent showcase of how fuckign good freddie is at piano
– the delay pedal bri has so he can layer the guitar and the reverb ads So much depth
– ive watched this 50 times by now and i never fail to forget to breathe the entire time

Prog Queen is the best Queen. I mean, they’re all awesome but COME ON – THIS #sorrynotsorry
