The 'We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions" was the first 45RPM record I ever bought. . . actually my parents bought it for me.

The guitar solo on We Will Rock You has captivated me for years by it's simplicity, yet I'm always amazed at how every note hits home.

Question:
Did Brian May play this solo 'off the cuff' or was it mulled over and tweaked for hours?
Did he nail it on the first take?
How many changes did he make to it?
Were any parts of it punched in?
Did you get to see him track that solo?
Any details of that event would be very interesting to me.

many thanks
Richard
