20 February 1971, Queen performed at Kingston Polytechnic College in London, England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ with Doug Bogie on bass.

Queen played two earlier gigs in their career on February 19 and 20, 1971 with their third bassist in only seven months. His name is Doug Bogie or Doug Ewood.

He only lasted two gigs before being โ€œfiredโ€ as documented in ๐๐ฎ๐ž๐ž๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐„๐š๐ซ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐˜๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ฌ. The band played two prestigious gigs one at Hornsey Town Hall and Kingston Polytechnic College, both in London. Freddie was to hold center stage and the rest of the band were to play vital and colorful supporting roles and make no attempt to steal the show but Doug apparently broke this accord in a startling manner by jumping up and down and choreographing his own personal stage routine. Brian May later recalled Dougโ€™s stage manner scornfully as โ€œmost incongruous. Unfortunately, the band let him go after the second show.

However, in an interview in 2015, Doug
shattered past misconceptions about his departure from Queen, saying it was a simple case of moving on to another band. He recalls:

“I thought that we have played two excellent and exciting gigs. However, in the back of the borrowed van after the Yes gig at Kingston Polytechnic, there was one of those taking everything apart discussions: ‘so everything is terrible’, ‘it’s a waste of time’, and Freddie announces he doesnโ€™t want to continue. So, as the new boy who knows nothing of their past activities and relationships, I just accept that that is the end of the experiment! A shame, but not unusual with bands with creative members.”

Doug would move on to a successful career in sound production and filmmaking.

Queen didn’t play another show for over four months. During the downtime, Brian May and Roger Taylor met 19-year-old John Deacon at a party. John passed the audition and was exactly what the band was looking for and on March 1, 1971, Queen was finally complete.

From Truro to Knebworth, what a wild ride for the boys and March 1, 2021 marks 50 years
