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

Freddie played the guitar very well. Certainly in the early days he used the guitar as much as the piano to write songs. His way of playing the riff in Ogre Battle was something to see, because he never used up-strokes; every one of those fast beats, about 16 to the bar, he hit with a down stroke, so it was an unusually frenetic kind of activity, Freddie playing that stuff on the guitar. Later on, he wrote almost exclusively on the piano.
