Here is an early Queen cover by Sugarcreek, from a live LP recorded at The Roxy, Charlotte, NC, February 24, 1981 and privately released in the same year.
Dragon Attack is credited to Brian May and probably it's legally correct, but it's very odd not to mention at all Queen name.

Apparently, just like Sugarcreek, Queen was another band who played Brian May's compositions.
Interesting approach, because that's exactly what he thinks now, 40 years later, about his Queen career.

Is there ever enough space for you, your self-importance, and your vile hatred of Brian May in the same room?

It's not a smart idea to use the words "self-importance" and "Brian May" in the same phrase.
The magnetism between them it's so powerful that obscures any meaning of your usual insults on me.

"Dragon Attack" is credited to Brian May on "The Game", too. I guess EMI, Elektra, Mack and, you know, the actual members of Queen were in on the conspiracy.

I guess that when, for instance, Foo Fighters put a cover of "Have A Cigar" on the b-side of "Learn To Fly" and credited it to Roger Waters, they were being "very odd" and promoting the view that Pink Floyd was a band that played Roger Waters-compositions.

Or, maybe, it's just normal practice to credit a song to its author.

But hey, the self-confessed sociopath who only comes here to say things he, by his own admission, doesn't believe he could get away with saying "in real life" says it's "very odd", so he must be right. It's not like he's ever shown himself to be a few cards short of a full deck...

It's getting pretty hard to satisfy that craving of yours now that this place is increasingly empty and crumbling, isn't it?

I was hoping this topic would get the attention it deserved and would be ignored.

Alas, such is not possible on QZ.

If only there was another Queen forum where keyboard warriors like aristide1 would be banned minutes after showing up...

If aristide is a keyboard warrior and no one replies, is he still a keyboard warrior?

I've heard 100 times about the "keyboard warrior" and the "self-confessed sociopath", I'm more bored than offended.
Why do you keep commenting here if there is a new pest free Queen forum moderated by Steve the truck driver / slaughterhouse worker?
Don't you have enough intellectual challenge there, "mate"?

I know what is the normal practice thomasquinn, but a song credited to Brian May is not like a song credited to Stravinsky.
The phrase "I've never heard Dragon Attack played by Queen, I only have the score sheets from the musical publisher" makes sense only to you.
Since they have tried to emulate mostly the performance not merely the composition, then the performer should have been be mentioned.

You pose a fascinating conundrum. Tree falling in the forest type thing.

We don't always see eye to eye, but posts like this are why I still like you.

That's a perfectly valid position. You could have stated it without unleashing your personal vendetta against Brian May. But what fun is rational dialogue unaccompanied by vitriol?

Spoken like a true sociopath. Because any normally wired person has a sense of empathy that would have kicked in after 2 or 3 times, never mind 100.
