As a child, John had a keen interest in electronics, and spent much time fiddling with radios and reel to reel tape machines. That could have been his calling were it not for a certain musical explosion that hit him hard. As with countless teenagers across the globe, it was the Beatles that cemented his interest in playing rock and roll. He quickly learned his way around a guitar, and by age 14 had formed his first band, the Opposition.

They made some noise around his home turf of Leicester, England, but in 1966 when the Opposition’s bass player quit, Deacon decided to make the move to the rhythm section. With John on bass, the band carried on for a couple more years in various lineups and names. Eventually, Deacon left the band to study electronics at Chelsea College, University of London. For a moment, his first interest had won out, but that would soon change once again.

In October 1970, John caught a performance by a new band calling themselves Queen. His initial reaction, however, was less than enthused. “They were all dressed in black, and the lights were very dim too, so all I could see were four shadowy figures,” he stated in a band bio. “They didn’t make a lasting impression on me at the time.โ€

But John ran into two of its members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, a few months later, when they were on the hunt for yet another bassist. They invited him to an audition. It was not only his style on the bass, but his reserved stance and personality that endeared him to the other members and helped him secure the gig.

Roger Taylor recalls, โ€œWe thought he was great.โ€ We were all so used to each other, and were so over the top. We thought that because he was quiet he would fit in with us without too much upheaval. He was a great bass player too โ€“ and the fact that he was a wizard with electronics was definitely a deciding factor.”

The new addition of John Deacon alongside Brian May, Roger Taylor, and Freddie Mercury, would be Queen’s classic lineup for the next 20 years one of which only death could fracture.
