Freddie Mercury – King of Queen

9 Mar
I found this fantastic YouTube clip of the flamboyant Queen-singer Freddie Mercury. It is from the Live Aid performance in 1985 and the question is – how brilliant can a man be?!? I think that he is one of the best singers ever and his performance on stage is better than almost everything I have ever seen.

The vocal harmonies are fantastic and quite close to powerpop.

On 23 November 1991, Freddie announced to the press that he had tested positive for HIV and had AIDS. Speculations had of course been going on for years. 24 hours later he died – merely 45 years old.
