With the spectacular new Queen + Adam Lambert  multi-media package "Live Around the World" just released ahead of the 45th anniversary of the iconic album "A Night at the Opera" , it is easy for both pundits and fans alike to assume that when the original Queen, composed of current members Brian May and Roger Taylor plus John Deacon and the late singer Freddie Mercury, released their fourth album in November 1975 that they were established stars. They weren't. And as you will hear beginning November 9 in this classic rock interview with Brian and Roger, they were painfully aware of that fact.
