ABSTRACT
The article focuses on bass player John Deacon, member of the band Queen and his performance in the Queen's 1976 song "Somebody to Love." It suggests that the song, a 12/8 swing gave Deacon the righteous authority in bass. Meanwhile, Queen guitarist Brian May said that Deacon's attitude was suited for the band and compliments Deacon's lyrical touch. It also notes that Deacon's part in the 1970s music tracks remains distinguished in the rock and roll music.
