Happy Music Monday! There was no front man like Freddie Mercury. There will never again be a front man like Freddie Mercury. For a big chunk of his life, Freddie Mercury wasn’t even Freddie Mercury! That mustached rock god didn’t turn up until well after Queen was an established band, but now? How could he have been anything else? Today Scott’s paying tribute to a true rock-n-roll hero. Happy Belated Birthday, Freddie. This post’s all about you.
Yeah, this long-haired metal king IS the same guy who’d be singing fond ballads near the end of his life! And it IS an incredible song! The best part about Freddie Mercury is that he could sell almost anything. A rock song about a water gun might get laughed off the stage today, but with Queen? People are throwing devil horns and singing along.
More tribute, after the jump!
