Hell of a showman
Rick Beato did "Bohemian Rhapsody" in an episode of "What Makes This Song Great" and he interviewed Brian May, don't remember if they were the same episode or not. How Freddy and the band wrote songs and recorded them, with what was then state of the art technology but primitive by today's standards, was a tour de force of artistic vision and accomplishment.
I went on a Queen binge after watching that episode. In spite of how much I liked what few songs I was familiar with, I've never owned any of their albums on any media. Listening to those albums was quite an eye opener. To be fair, I never owned any Beatles on any media until 2009 and I had been a fan since Feb 9, 1964 8:30PM
Sad to hear of somebody passing away, but honestly I have never heard of him.
Hard to believe its 30 years
You have never heard of Freddie Mercury from Queen?!?!
a night at the opera is my album..saw them in Toronto at the grandstand in 80...love queen
i have never heard of a musician that doesn't know queen
I remember the day before he died, when He was having someone read a letter to the press concerning his condition. He died the next day. I really felt terrible. He was the first of my musical hero’s to die. It ripped my heart out.
my 2 fave queen songs... fat bottom girls and 39
There was no bitterness in that band. They loved meeting their audience.
The night I saw them eighteen thousand people felt like they'd had a personal connection with Freddie Mercury. He was unguarded and vulnerable in some moments, inviting crowd input. He seemed genuinely lifted by the affirmation and gave more of himself in return. By the time they closed the show everyone in the arena had sung with Freddie.
He was loved.
Of course everyone has their respected opinion, but for my money there was never a greater vocalist in rock than Freddie Mercury. And a very talented pianist as well.
...on that day the rock world also lost a phenomenal drummer
I was and still am a huge Queen fan. The first proper band I got into. I remember finding out about Freddie's death when I went to do my morning paper round aged 13. Went to post the first paper and there was the headline. Bunked off school that day. Listening to this when I saw this post. RIP Freddie!
I first heard of Freddie Mercury in the late 60s. He was booked to do a show with some kind of band at a giant gathering of the accolytes of teenaged guru Babaji.
At least 10,000 people were expected to show up at the Houston Astrodome for this, but days before the event the FBI busted the kid guru and his parents for all kinds of fraud and financial crimes. That was the last I heard of Freddie until Queen exploded into our consciousness.
Well, now you have. I have heard of the group (I think my kids may have listened to them, but not me) but never had heard of the guy referred to in the OP.
My dad was a bigger fan of queen than me. He would blast wwry & watc wide open .
Loved Queen's first 4 albums, not so much the more radio friendly later stuff, but Freddie was unique, one of a kind.
Greatly missed. RIP
Erm, thats me saying Whaaaaaat?
I messed up with the quote button
Freddie passed on my birthday. Very sad and very missed. RIP
