Happy Birthday to my fav bassist John Deacon of Queen.
He is now 51 years old
Yes. "Happy Birthday" indeed.
John's one of the good ones.
Yes Happy B-day JD! What is he doing now anyway since the fued with the other Queen members?
HAppy birthday, ill never forget the bass line, Under pressure.
Explain this fued... I was wondering why Brian May and Roger Taylor played the rock and roll induction without him last year.
I guess it is fitting I learned Dragon Attack this past weekend
I guess the feud was about the choice of Brian and Roger to record a new version of "We are the Champions" with Robbie Williams.
I agree with him, that Williams spoilt this wonderful Freddy song.
On the night of the Rock'n Roll induction he was absent 'cause of "sickness" in a official way.
Whenever I think of John, I hear
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST!!
That is such a killer grooving bassline.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN!
Happy Birthday 'Wild' John Deacon!!!!!
Hmm, his best line has to be We Will Rock You!
What about 'a kind of magic' and 'invisible man'... simple classics.
You guys are crazy - "bicycle race" is my personal fave.
Fairy Feller's Master Stroke
One of my all-time favorites.... one of the best. If only I had his taste and finesse....
Does that song have a bass line.....?
But I agree with all the accolades. He's a great bassist and I just love the sound of his bass. On top of that, he's smart as well. I believe John has college degrees in Maths and Physics, and a First Class Honours degree in Electronics (that's like "Magna Cum Laude" for you guys in the US).
Dude! Hell, I thought I was the only one who thought of that!
I LEARNED that song when I was like 14 or so because I thought it was the baddest-assed bassline I ever heard- simple yet refined- just like the man himself!
HAPPY BELATED B-DAY MR. DEACON!!!!
From a loyal Queen fan...
BassDodger, you make me feel bad. I'm 24 and still can't play it (I guess it's time to put the ol' ear to work!)
Too many great basslines from him:
I like It's Late, Father to Son, Dragon Attack, Sail Away Sweet Sister, The March Of The Black Queen, I'm Going Slightly Mad, Pain is So Close To Pleasure, The Millionaire Waltz and many many others
Ps: We Will Rock You is very good bass sound from live version like at Wembley 86 for example
Actually, NukeBass, I said I learned and played it at 14, never said I could do it now! I'm 33 and I listened to it because of these posts and I have to say in all honesty that there is NO way I could do it now. In fact, i probably had it all wrong when I played it then. I just tried to thumb through it- not gonna happen! Learning and playing a song are 2 different things I guess. So don't feel bad- I can't play it now, either. Give me like a couple of months....
