I want to take this opportunity to publicly...
By Rhyno X
...apologize for destroying the speakers in my dad's silver Chevy Caprice Classic with the red leather interior. I admit to blasting this on cassette way too loud driving around Dallas in his car back in '79. This LP is one of a few records by big rock stars I was still into before I got outta high school in '80. While I was waaay more into the punk scene at the time, Live Killers has a few songs that are much more amped than the studio LP versions.
My dad died a few years back and I am realizing too late I never told him I regretted shredding those old JBL cones in his fine ride.
But this LP rocks plenty hard in a few spots and it's better to regret something you have done than something you haven't done.
Oh What Memories...
By Big Timm
What can you say about this? Saw them in St. Paul, MN in 1980 at the old Civic Center and they opened with Jail House Rock....AWESOME! In the day Queen was my favorite of all bands (and still are). Brian May is one of the most(if not the most) underrated guitarists to ever sling one. Roger Taylor on drums, well what can you say but-WOW! And John Deacon on bass...don't really think there is any better than him that ever paired and carried a rhythm section and of course no better frontman ever than the one and only Freddie Mercury (sometime on the keys and rhythm guitar). Was so sad and shocked when Freddie passed. Rock lost a truly great vocalist and frontman. Buy this you will not be sorry. And Ohhhh the memories that come back. Queen will never be Queen without Freddie. Paul Rogers and Adam Lambert just don't have it.
Easily one of the best and most comprehensive live albums of all times. In fact, few bands could match Queen's mastery of music on stage. They filled every gap, multiplying themselves until you realize they were only a four piece band. Unbelievable.
Great ’70’s Queen
By Cat for the Tillerman
It’s a great Live album, and up until recently, their only live album from the ’70’s. But thankfully they have released “live at the Rainbow”. Anyway, Live Killers still stands up well. Be aware that in the “Death on two legs” song, there is an annoying “beep-beep-beep” where they had to edit out somebody’s name ( Mercury mentions somebody in the song). It’s also on the original album, not sure why they don’t get rid of that noise.
