    As I was watching "Legends-Queen" on VH1 the other night, it occurred to me that Queen was becoming popular during the time that VH would've been still playing clubs.

    Anyone know if they've ever covered a Queen tune?

    I once read an article that Eddie is a fan of two Queen songs in particular - Ogre Battle from Queen II and Brighton Rock from Sheer Heart Attack. Live Killers has a bitchin live version of Brighton with a Brian May solo

    Now I'm here would be cool. Is that on any bootlegs? I bet they could do a killer version of "Don't Stop me now" & "Hammer to fall". This is reminding me of Extreme at the Freddie mercury tribute... I was brought up on Queen, but that thing in 1991 (was it?) sent me running back to the old records...

    Hey, I've heard that Extreme played an awesome set at that Freddie Mercury Tribute show. They have a copy of it at Blockbuster, so I think I'll just have to rent it!

    How about "Fat Bottomed Girls" for a cover tune?

    There's this site that lists "all" of the covers Van Halen did in their club days and it lists "Stone Cold Sober Again"--Queen as being one of 'em--now I don't know if that means Stone cold crazy by Queen or Stone Cold Sober Again by Humble Pie or Free...

    IMO that Queen tribute has some highlights,but the Extreme and Gary parts of it have always been nuthin' short of BUZZKILL to crazy ole Loons!!!


    On a more + note,I'd love to hear Van Rothin' cover,"I'm in love with my car" by Queen--Mother Love Bone did a rip-roarin' version of this classic...

    I just bought NEWS OF THE WORLD - if any one has it, listen to FIGHT FROM THE INSIDE - I could definitely see VH covering that tune. It has a Roth kind of attitude ( a la Mean Street) and that violent edge to it.... I bought the cd for the Rick Rubin Remix of We Will Rock You but i found a tune i like better!!
