Following up on his hit performance of Bohemian Rhapsody on a 100+ year old fairground organ, YouTuber Alexey Rom is back with another Queen tune played on an instrument that predates the band by seven decades. They’re taking requests now.
Queen’s 1977 classic We Will Rock You is one of rock and roll’s (and sports’) greatest anthems. So the idea of a cover version is kind of sacrilege. But we’ll give this 1981 version a pass, since it was recorded by Queen themselves, and gives the song a whole different flavor.
Guitarist Billy Watman turns in a fingerstyle rendition of Queen’s magnum opus which would be impressive if played by anyone, but it’s even more amazing that he’s just 14 years old and can play like this. More on Billy’s YouTube page. (Video by Tony Goode)
