Badass of the Week – Freddie Mercury
When we started these “Badass of the week” posts I clearly stated that the person did not need to be relevant that particular week, or even alive. My pick happens to be both, and yet he is still my Badass of the Week, and that’s badass. Freddie Mercury had it all, the rock star look, the mustache, the voice, and an all-time great band behind him, queen. I have always said if I could sing like anyone in the history of the world I would sing like Freddie. This guy had a vocal range that couldn’t be touched and an energy that couldn’t be replicated. He could serenade you to sleep (It’s a Hard Life ) or rock your socks off (Bohemian Rhapsody). I have never seen Freddie Mercury live because sadly his life was cut far to short, but I have seen videos of his live performances, and they’re amazing. Freddie Mercury is my, vocally superior, badass of the week.
