Brian May InTheStudio For Queen's News Of The World

(InTheStudio) The latest episode of the syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio celebrates Queen's 1977 classic News Of The World.

News Of The World featuring perhaps the two most recognized Rock anthems in history. "We Will Rock You" and "We are the Champions." Brian May recalls to InTheStudio host Redbeard how Queen's singer Freddie Mercury envisioned those songs to be and why that spirit continues today.

"He (Freddie) could already see how it would be, if we played it in a concert and everyone had their hands in the air and we sang "We Are The Champions". And I could see that's what it's about. Years later we talked about it and he said to me, 'Rock'n'Roll is the only place where everybody has a feeling of like being on a team, but you're not fighting anybody.' It's like if you're at a game you have two sides who are singing their songs and feeling very much part of a team, but they all want to kill the other side. The difference at a rock concert is, everybody's in the same team." Stream the program here.
