    Yes, he was.

    The Live At Rio concert is still one of the best concert videos I've ever seen. I sure wish I had seen them back in the day.

    He made audiences feel important at every show and gave them a helluva good time.

    I used to have this entire concert on tape back in college. I played it so much that the ribbon wore out and wouldn't track anymore.

    Exposing those who may care to click on a couple random non-hit songs written by Freddie. Both are brilliant in so many ways.

    old school, 1974



    a bit more polish in 1986

    I remember very well the day he died, I was 15, at the time and probably now, it was my #1 rock band. It was a very sad day, as a Barcelona young citizen, I was expecting to see him and Montserrat Caballe singing together in Bcn 1992”s olympic games..
    What a great voice, great performer and musician.
    Queen & Freddy forever!!!

    cheers
