It’s 30 years ago today . Queen released scandal on 9 October 1989 . he video for the song featured the band performing on a stage designed to look like a newspaper – it was filmed at Pinewood Studiosin September 1989, and is notable for Mercury’s “gaunt” appearance.
In the audio commentary included with the video in Queen: Greatest Video Hits 2, Roger Taylor admitted his dislike for it, stating it was “not one of my favourite songs. One of the most boring videos we ever made.”
The issue deals with how the press deals with individual members of the band. Mainly it is about Brian May’s relationship with actress Anita Dobson and the rumors about Freddie Mercury’s illness.
