"Bohemian Rhapsody" - great movie.
Queen - many great songs - I still love to listen to them.

So hard to believe it's been that long.

What a gift of awesome performances he left behind.

Best front man/male vocalist ever, in my opinion.

I really liked how he would get the audience involved.


Every time I see/hear the commercial that goes I want to break Free, I think of the Queen video where Freddie is vacuuming .

Freddy was one of, if not the greatest entertainer in rock.

Mercury was truly one of a kind. I saw a video recently where he performed live with The Beatles, Bono from U2, and a few other legitimate music legends at a benefit concert (not Live Aid). I could not believe it. It was like seeing Elvis.

I saw Queen before live in Lakeland, FL back in ‘77. Best concert I’ve ever attended. Freddie was one of the great frontmen. Opening act was Thin Lizzy but Queen was the best.

Mercury was undoubtedly the best rock band front man in history, the guy's stage presence was immense and of course he could REALLY sing, the thing is the rest of the band were none too shabby either! The vocals coming from Roger Taylor here while playing the drums are world class and we all know what Brian May can do with a guitar.
