Quote related to 'Innuendo' from 'Innuendo'

We just played that in the studio. It evolved slowly. We were lucky with Freddie: some singers will wait until the very end to do the vocal, but usually Freddie was in there with us. I'm trying out a riff, which has come to my head; Roger is doing a pattern which is in his head, John is kind of looking at us and feeling out what's happening; Freddie is there, and he's playing keyboards, and he's sort of singing what comes into his head, what works with the riff as we keep going around it. And so we already have an idea where the song will go, ‘cause really, you could have the greatest riff in the world, and if you don't have a song, you don't have anything.
