Queen - Brighton Rock

Album: Sheer Heart Attack (EMI, 1974) Chart pos:N/A

A few years ago I was watching live at Wembley on DVD with my parents when midway though the show there was a yawn-a-thon solo by Brian May which lasted nearly ten minutes, the song was listed as Brighton Rock solo, which is odd because the song Brighton Rock from Queen's third album is one of their most underrated songs. While the song begins and ends with Freddie Mercury's castrato vocals singing a song about a courting couple on a seaside holiday. The middle section consists of a long guitar solo,which surprisingly works quite well in the confines of the five minute song.

Here's the shamefully masturbatory guitar solo from their Wembley 86 concert.
