No mention is made of the band's bust-up with original manager Norman Sheffield during their early days at Trident Studios, before they signed to EMI. The band had signed a contract with Sheffield that effectively paid them poverty wages. They had been allowed to use the then state-of-the-art recording equipment on studio 'downtime' (i.e early hours of the morning) and cut their first two albums this way but found they could not exist on the wages paid. This resulted in a massive argument as Sheffield refused to budge or give them an increase. It was only when Jim Beach offered to take over their management that an agreement was reached effectively buying out their contact with Sheffield and ending their relationship with Trident (who produced the first albums and released them on a licencing deal through EMI). However the band were still angry with Sheffield for years after and wrote the song 'Death on two legs (dedicated to...)' which appears on the 'A Night At The Opera' album, which was a thinly veiled character assassination of Sheffield and the animosity felt by the band to him. Sheffield subsequently tried to sue the band for defamation of character (despite not actually being named in the song) and although the band settled out if court with him, by then he had unwittingly dropped himself in it as the legal papers he filed became public knowledge so any Queen fans who wondered who the song was about now had the mystery solved.

Just before the Live Aid performance the Queen song 'Who Wants to Live Forever' is heard being played. That particular song was part of the 'A Kind of Magic' album which Queen recorded after Live Aid. The classic misconception: The song is nowhere part of the plot, but solely serves for decorative purposes. Actually, the character doesn't listen to it, only the audience does. See more »
