Queen – Mad The Swine.

Queen_-_headlongAlthough John Deacon left his bass and amplifier at home in Oadby, after less than a year in London, where he went on to achieve a First Class Honours Degree in electronics at Chelsea College, now part of King’s College London, he decided he wanted to join a band. By this time Queen had already been formed by Freddie Mercury, Brian May, and Roger Taylor, and Deacon even saw them in October 1970. In early 1971 he was introduced to Taylor and May by a friend at a disco who told him that they were in a band that had just lost its bassist. A couple of days later he auditioned in a lecture room at Imperial College London and became the last member of Queen to join the band. Since the band’s last bassist drew attention away from Mercury, Deacon was selected for his musical talent, his quiet demeanour and his electrical skills. A persistent legend claims Deacon was the seventh bassist auditioned. According to various sources, prior bassists with the band included Mike Grose, Barry Mitchell and Doug Ewood.
