Legendary band Queen was booed off the stage at the 1974 Sunbury Rock Festival in Australia. They were unknown in Australia at that time and the crowd was impatiently waiting for the next band ... a local band called Madder Lake who currently had a hit in the charts called "12 Pound Toothbrush". Freddie Mercury responded by prophetically declaring "When we come back to Australia, Queen will be the biggest band in the world" ... and when they returned in 1976 they were indeed one of the hottest acts on the planet.

Here is a clip of Madder Lake playing live fairly recently. They play "12 Pound Toothbrush" at the 4:30 mark. Pump up the volume and have a listen.

Just found out that the guitarist from Madder Lake, Brenden Mason, has a guitar store called "Real Guitars" which is about 15 minutes away from where I live. Must check it out sometime.
