Back Chat - Queen Guitar Tab
Downloads & Mirrors
"Back Chat", written by bassist John Deacon, for the 1982 Queen album Hot Space, is the track with the closest ties to the "black/funk" music that many of the songs on the album emulate. Deacon (who differed from his band-mates, in that he was the only one raised on soul instead of rock and roll) had chosen a no-compromise method of eliminating any rock elements from his songs for Hot Space. This act of defiance caused friction amongst fellow band members, particularly guitarist Brian May, who fought to retain some Queen sensibilities in their funk diversions.
