Dallas, TX - June 30, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands gets a royal visit from Queen songwriters, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, on the 35th anniversary of their biggest selling album The Game.

'There was a time there, about three seconds, when we were the biggest band in the world', chuckles Queen's Brian May.  Queen had succeeded as four real 'mates' on an international scale, producing four Top 10 albums in five years which would continue only to sell increasingly for the next three decades. With four writers, the band had a surplus of strong songs on The Game, including 'Play the Game', 'Dragon Attack', the Glam rock-reminiscent 'Coming Soon''Need Your Loving Tonight', the touching 'Sail Away Sweet Sister', the prescient 'Save Me', and two # 1 hits, the rockabilly-inspired 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' and the rhythmic smash 'Another One Bites the Dust'.

Roger Taylor and Brian May give us the royal treatment, revealing  much of how Queen worked in the studio for The Game. Brian, speaking to InTheStudio host Redbeard, sums up perhaps the most important and overlooked element of the entire recording process.                                   

'I think as a band we are very aware of sound. You can make great, wonderful records, build in all sorts of arrangements and everything, but if it doesn't sound nice, then nobody wants to listen to it. It's something that isn't talked about much these days. Sound quality is vital.  - Brian May
