Quote related to 'Innuendo' from 'Innuendo'

I was in Montreux, and Queen were recording at Mountain Studios - the same studio where we made Going for the One. I go in, and they played me the whole album, but they saved Innuendo until last. I was incredibly blown away. They said, “We want you to play on that. Why don't you race around like Paco de Lucía?” Brian May had three Gibson Chet Atkins, which are Spanish guitars. I found one I liked, we started doing takes, we tried different approaches, and then we went to dinner. After dinner, we went back to the studio, listened through, and comped together what you hear today. It was just a lovely experience with a lovely bunch of guys.
