"As It Began" says that John was spending little of time at the studios on recording the album "Innuendo", but Mr. Richards said that John DID concern himself with it and he even worked overtime.
About 'The Hitman', Sebastian told me the following comment of Brian (in an interview to Roger and himself that was done at Suset Strip Hotel by Laurel Fishman). Interesting for us Deaky-fans, isn't it?
"I had very little to do with the original idea. Most of the riff came from
Freddie. I wasn't even in the room when they wrote it. I changed the key and
some of the notes to make it playable on the guitar. We finished the backing
track, but it seemed to ramble. John sat down and decided to reconstruct the
track. He changed the order. He changed everything. I went back and played
on that. Then we filled in the gaps on the lyrics, did the harmonies and
generally tidied up."
- Played bass with The Cross?
Dominique wrote the following question on my guestbook:
I read once on a page that John also played on some tracks on Shove It by The Cross. Is this true?. I guess it then should be Feel The Force or Stand Up For Love (or love on a tightrope).
I've never heard of that, but some of my friends said it possible because Queen member's name are shown on 'thanks' credit of "Shove It". What do you think?
Thank you for reading! See you next week!
