The band had a number of bass players during this period who did not fit with the band’s chemistry. It was not until February 1971 that they settled on John Deacon and began to rehearse for their first album. They recorded four of their own songs, „Liar”, „Keep Yourself Alive”, „The Night Comes Down” and „Jesus”, for a demo tape; no record companies were interested. It was also around this time Freddie changed his surname to „Mercury”, inspired by the line „Mother Mercury, look what they’ve done to me” in the song „My Fairy King”. On 2 July 1971, Queen played their first show in the classic line-up of Mercury, May, Deacon and Taylor at a Surrey college outside London.
