The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke , by Richard Dadd
This painter became mad in 1843, and persuaded that his father was the devil in disguise, killed him with a knife and fled away. He tried to kill another tourist with a razor blade, then was caught and sent to an hospital, were he was allowed to paint until the end of his life.
Written about a painting done by Richard Dadd, with accompanying poem. It’s just so silly and I love all the mythology. Freddie’s Mythological and fairy tale songs are always so beautiful. Especially his ones about Rhye.
The Deacy Amp is an electric guitar amplifier created in 1972 by Queen’s bass guitarist John Deacon. Using an amplifier circuit board found in a skip, it was fitted into a speaker cabinet and powered by a 9-volt battery. The amplifier had no volume or tone controls for most of its history and was never broken or repaired. It was used along with Brian May’s Red Special electric guitar and treble-booster to produce sounds reminiscent of various orchestral instruments, such as violin, cello, trombone, clarinet, or even vocals, starting from the songs “Procession” and “The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke” from the 1974 album ‘’Queen II’’.
