Quote related to 'Ogre Battle' from 'Queen II'

Freddie would write some of the riffs. He wrote the Ogre Battle riff on acoustic guitar, in all its detail. He had a very kind of feverish, frenetic quality about him when he was playing. Everything was very, very fast, and with great ferocity, and with all downstrokes. It's hard to describe. People don't realize what a good player he was. He had a lot of dexterity.
