I don’t think the Resurrection video has been seen in the media very much – and certainly never in this high quality, now remastered by our brilliant team, especially for this new BM Youtube Channel. For me, it reminds me of an era that is almost gone from my memory; when I was convinced, following the loss of Freddie, that my destiny out there was as some kind of singing guitar hero. I poured a massive amount of energy into the track … inspired by the work of the fabulous Cozy Powell, who had thrown in his support in a massive way, propelling me forward, out of the dark place I’d found myself in after Freddie passed away.
So the musical part of this is something I’ll always be proud of. The video is really a separate vision. I collaborated with the H-Gun team, to make a clip which took the track into a different universe … for fun and entertainment, and perhaps to tear myself further away from the real underlying pain which gave birth to the song. Cozy and I spent a day surrounded by chemical bonfires, in a film studio in LA – being hooligans and heroes and having great fun. Enjoy ! Bri
