“Well here’s a rare moment! The original line-up of a young hopeful group called QUEEN! Roger Taylor, Mike Grose, Brian May, and Freddie Bulsara.

Mike was a bass player from Cornwall with a very big sound, but things didn’t work out with him and we went in a search for a bass guitarist who shared our dreams.

Guess who we found !!! Thanks to @39shadesofclogs for finding this – I don’t think I had this snap. 💥💥💥💥Yes! A young Bri with straightened hair – just like in the film !!! 💥💥💥💥

I think this was taken at our very first rehearsal in a lecture theatre in Mech Eng that I booked – at Imperial College. Bri.”
