Queen: The Millionaire Waltz

Queen’s classical influence really shines on the intro to this song in a duet between Freddie Mercury and bassist John Deacon. Originally recorded for A Day at the Races, this clip of “The Millionaire Waltz” comes from a live performance at the Summit in Houston, Texas in 1977.

It’s too bad the camera misses most of Deacon’s upper register romp, but we get a good look at him when the song really takes off.

    Could listen to any of these four artists over and over and over again!

  2. Deacon rules! One of the greatest rock bassists of all times.
