“I don’t have a record collection. I listen to the radio and sometimes just stumble upon things I like. I don’t go out of my way to seek out new music. I love Aretha Franklin to death but otherwise I’m not a very good record buyer. I can get a buzz out of all kinds of things. Just listening to music is a kind of fever for me.”

21 February 1974 – Queen played “Seven Seas of Rhye” on “Top of the Pops” replacing David Bowie, London.

A pivotal moment an “unknown” band stood in for David Bowie on TV and found fame

A video with a pre-recorded performance of David Bowie singing his latest hit ‘Rebel Rebel’ had failed to arrived at the studios and the show was in panic.

With no recording in sight, the video would have to be dropped and a new band found at the last minute to perform in David Bowie’s place.

A young, unknown band called Queen, made up of four youngsters from London, were suggested as an alternative.

The bandmates, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor, who were still students and not even performing with the band full-time, seized their moment.

The song Queen performed was ‘Seven Seas Of Rhye’, written by Freddie Mercury, it was the third single released by the band.

The rare footage of the momentous performance was feared lost in 1975, but was found and restored in the nineties.

The video fluctuates between black and white and colour as Freddie Mercury and his bandmates own the stage and give their all to what was at that time, the biggest performance in their young careers.

The appearance was a hit with Top Of The Pops fans and after the show was aired, the ‘Seven Seas Of Rhye’ shot to popularity.

The single was rushed to vinyl just two days after the performance and the thrilled members of Queen got their first song in the UK singles chart, eventually peaking at number 10.

With Queen’s boost of overnight fame from their ‘Top Of The Pops’ appearance, they released their second album Queen II, just three weeks after the performance.

When their sophomore album came out, those who heard it were impressed and spiritually uplifted. Queen had arrived in style and Freddie could give up his weekend job at his clothing stall and concentrate on the great times that lay ahead.

This album elevated the band to Rock Royalty!

Brian May later recalled the exciting moment the band made their TV show debut.
Speaking on 2011 the Queen documentary Days of our Lives, Brian May recalled: “It was an exciting experience, because hey here you are on Top of the Pops and it’s all happening.”

Queen wowed the world and were not even playing their own instruments for the performance that made them famous, just goes to show how much charisma and stage presence the four students from London naturally possessed.

The rest, as they say, is music history.

20 February 1971, Queen performed at Kingston Polytechnic College in London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 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 “fired” as documented in 𝐐𝐮𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐲 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬. 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 Doug’s stage manner scornfully as “most 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 doesn’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
