Queen

” Years ago, I thought up the name Queen. It’s just a name. But it’s regal, obviously, and -sounds splendid. “

“A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It’s a theatrica! event.”

“I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me.”

“What will I be doing in twenty years’ time? I’ll be dead, darling! Are you crazy? “

“I won’t be a rock star. I will be a legend. “

~Freddie Mecury

“When we lost Freddie, we not only lost a great personality, a man with a great sense of humor, a true showman, but we lost probably the best, the really, the best virtuoso rock ‘n’ roll singer of all time. He could sing anything in any style. He could change his style from line to line and, God, that’s an art. And he was brilliant at it. “

~Roger Daltrey

The Great Pretender by Freddie Mercury

 

Queen

“…Queen were an English rock band formed in 1970 in London by guitarist Brian May, lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, and drummer Roger Taylor, with bassist John Deacon completing the lineup the following year.

The band were noted for their musical diversity, multi-layered arrangements, vocal harmonies, and incorporation of audience participation into their live performances.[3] Their 1985 Live Aid performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time in an industry poll.[4]

Queen enjoyed success in the UK in the early 1970s with the albums Queen and Queen II, but it was with the release of Sheer Heart Attack in 1974 and A Night at the Opera the following year that the band gained international success. They have released fifteen studio albums, five live albums, and numerous compilation albums. Since Mercury’s death and Deacons retirement, May and Taylor have performed infrequently together at special events and programmes as members of other ensembles. From 2004 to 2009 they collaborated with Paul Rodgers, under the moniker Queen + Paul Rodgers. …”

Freddie Mercury

“…Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) (5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was an Indian British singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist, best known as the frontman and co-founder of the rock band Queen (inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001). As a performer, he was known for his vocal prowess and flamboyant performances.[3][4][5] As a songwriter, he composed many international hits, including “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen”, “Somebody to Love”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, “We Are the Champions” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”.

In addition to his work with Queen, he also led a solo career and was occasionally a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists. Mercury, who was of Parsi descent and grew up in India, has been referred to as “Britain’s first Asian rock star.”[6] He died of bronchopneumonia induced by HIV (AIDS) on 24 November 1991, only one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease. In 2006, Time Asia named him as one of the most influential Asian heroes of the past 60 years,[7] and he continues to be cited as one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2008, Rolling Stone ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers of all time.[4][8] …”
