What do you think was the best Queen Era? Early heavy glam rock Queen or later 'stadium rock' Queen? Examples for comparison: Spoiler Early Queen: Spoiler YouTube - Stone Cold crazy Live at the Rainbow 1974! YouTube - Queen - White Queen at The Rainbow Theatre 1974 Later Queen: Spoiler YouTube - Live Aid 1985 Queen-Radio Ga Ga YouTube - Queen - Hammer to fall (Live at Wembley 1986) Personally i much prefer Queen in their earlier glam rock, pre-synthesizer phase. Their first five albums are five of my favourite albums ever. I recently showed music off them to one of my friends and he had no idea how heavy Queen used to be back in the day. Complete metalhead, but he loves their earlier stuff! Plus i think their live performances, like those two video staken from their 74 concert at the rainbow, are... perfect! That video of White Queen is probably one of the best live performances i've ever seen. Queen 1973-1976 is definitely my favourite band ever. I still like their later stuff, but i think it's nothing compared to what they made in the 70's.
