Queen The Greatest - Joe Elliott/Brian May Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

Joe Elliott - "I was the first person to sing with Queen after Fred died. Doing it on stage in front of 80,000 people and a billion people on TV. Holy shit!."

Joe Elliott - "You'd never think it would be possible to get one person to stand in Fred's shoes because there's no way I could have done anything other than, say, the rock stuff. With the Freddie Mercury Tribute Show, you needed 20 characters to even come close to pulling on his coattails."

Brian May - "It's done. And Joe Elliott was next to me as we walked off and he just grabbed my arm and he said, ‘Brian, look at that’."

Joe Elliott - "I said, ‘You need to stand here and look at this because you will never, ever see this again. If this is the end, what a way to go’."

Brian May - "And for the first time, I looked out and I thought, ‘Ah, how amazing’ this amount of love got poured out to our friend."
