Maureen Holloway –
Here’s a little tidbit for Throwback Thursday. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Mike Myers says he had to fight long and hard – and threaten to walk out – to get the producers to use Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody in the famous singalong scene in “Wayne’s World”. Talking about why he gained a reputation for being difficult to work with, Myers said this was an example of why he may have appeared that way, and maintains that it was worth it. What did the producers want to use instead? Guns ‘n Roses – presumably either “Paradise City” or “Welcome to the Jungle”. Not a bad choice, but Myers wanted Queen and only Queen, and Wayne’s World put the band back at #1, and introduced another generation to Scaramouche and the fandango. Myers, by the way, is at work on another Austin Powers movie. Name? Austin Powers. Sex? Yes please.
