The Vault | 1977
Queen | News of the World

Again, music videos, which were, in essence "invented" by Queen (with the promotional video for their iconic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY) didn't yet have the reach, the penetration, beyond DON KIRSCHNER'S ROCK CONCERTs which were broadcast at midnight, predating, even, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.

Being an outcast in a group of outcasts in high school, there was some alignment of the universe which secured me a ticket to see Queen, and Freddie Mercury, from front row, center, in November 1977.

I haven't been the same since.

Thank God.
