Nasa's New Horizons: Excitement ahead of Ultima Thule flyby Occurring some 6.5 billion km (4 billion miles) from Earth, the flyby will set a new record for the most distant ever exploration of a Solar System object by a spacecraft. New Horizons will gather a swathe of images and other data over the course of just a few hours leading up to and beyond the closest approach. This is timed for 05:33 GMT. At that moment, the probe will be about 3,500km from Ultima's surface and moving at 14km/s.

QUEEN's Gamble On 'A Night At The Opera' Pays Off Royally

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 

Dallas, TX - November 17, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands speaks to Queen songwriters, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, about the make or break fourth album from Queen A Night at the Opera.
 
It would be next to impossible to understate the importance of Queen's November 1975 A Night at the Opera, both to the band's career and to the album's influence on rock thereafter. Brian May, one of the finest guitarists in rock history, is joined InTheStudio by Queen drummer Roger Taylor in this classic rock interview for the 40th anniversary of this eclectic hard rock album which included: 'Death on Two Legs', 'I'm in Love with My Car', the progressive rock 'The Prophet Song', skiffle pub sing along ' '39' , mainstream pop 'You're My Best Friend', campy vaudeville 'Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon', Freddie Mercury'sdrop dead gorgeous love song 'Love of My Life' , and the mock operetta song for the ages 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
 
Broke after three albums, Queen's Brian May reveals to InTheStudio host Redbeard how desperate the band's situation was, but also how determined they were to do it.
 
'It was definitely sink or swim. If that album (A Night at the Opera) hadn't done what it did, that would have been the end of the band... We took a lot of risks and that was always the name of the game, I suppose. And 'Bohemian Rhapsody', in particular, everyone said, 'you can't put that out as a single'... Well that's what we're putting out and we're not changing it.'  - Brian May

Queen 'The Game': Brian May, Roger Taylor Recall 1980 Worldwide #1

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 

Dallas, TX - June 30, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands gets a royal visit from Queen songwriters, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, on the 35th anniversary of their biggest selling album The Game.

'There was a time there, about three seconds, when we were the biggest band in the world', chuckles Queen's Brian May.  Queen had succeeded as four real 'mates' on an international scale, producing four Top 10 albums in five years which would continue only to sell increasingly for the next three decades. With four writers, the band had a surplus of strong songs on The Game, including 'Play the Game', 'Dragon Attack', the Glam rock-reminiscent 'Coming Soon''Need Your Loving Tonight', the touching 'Sail Away Sweet Sister', the prescient 'Save Me', and two # 1 hits, the rockabilly-inspired 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' and the rhythmic smash 'Another One Bites the Dust'.

Roger Taylor and Brian May give us the royal treatment, revealing  much of how Queen worked in the studio for The Game. Brian, speaking to InTheStudio host Redbeard, sums up perhaps the most important and overlooked element of the entire recording process.                                   

'I think as a band we are very aware of sound. You can make great, wonderful records, build in all sorts of arrangements and everything, but if it doesn't sound nice, then nobody wants to listen to it. It's something that isn't talked about much these days. Sound quality is vital.  - Brian May

QUEEN InTheStudio: Roger Taylor, Brian May Discuss Live At The Rainbow '74

Queen Open Rock Time Capsule InTheStudio : Roger Taylor, Brian May Discuss Live At The Rainbow '74

Dallas, TX - September 3, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands takes the wrapper off Queen Live at the Rainbow '74, a rock time capsule of an embryonic band making the leap from London cult band to stadium filler.

Forty years ago when a young London quartet called Queen headlined the venerable Rainbow Theater there, recording the performance on audio and film was a daunting task, both technologically and financially. Live recording then was much more art than science, no do-overs, no digital tricks, nowhere to hide.

After two studio albums and a trial-by-fire legendary US tour supporting lovable Mott the Hoople, Queen was ready to reign over the Rainbow Theater, and in late March of 1974 they nailed it. The performance was so strong that the band would return in November of that year to play two more sold-out shows in support of their third album Sheer Heart Attack.

Queen drummer Roger Taylor explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard how during preparation for the band's most recent 2013/2014 tour the Rainbow concert tapes resurfaced.
'I had a copy of the Rainbow live... in my car. I was on my way to rehearsal on the first day and I said to Brian, 'These tracks are great!' I forgot that we were a really heavy band.'

Guitarist Brian May continues, 'There weren't any tricks to be had. It's all live and dangerous, as it is now with us. We knew what we were doing in those days. We were very clear and we were very well oiled in a sense; we knew each other very well.'
