Throwback to one of the tours with Queen. Abel on the strings.

Queen and Abel on tour

Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon; the legendary Queen and Abel. Now that was a force to be reckoned with! Abel was, of course, the unofficial members who performed on tours and helped the band write some of the biggest hits. I mean, we all know Freddie Mercury was a real unique person, unmatched in his character even today, but some of his ideas weren’t all that great, until Abel made a few crucial suggestions. “Guilt stains on my pillow“ – originally went “cunt stains“, and then “cum stains”, until Abel stepped in with a more nuanced solution. We Will Rock You? Yeah, you can bet Freddie had a saucier verb than “rock” in mind…
