Freddie – Queen guitarist Brian May stopped by BBC Radio ostensibly to discuss Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, his new book on 19th century French stereoscopic cards. But after detailing his lifelong love of the cards and their odd visions of hell, May revealed plans for a new Queen album featuring unreleased Freddie Mercury vocals from the Eighties. Asked what his favorite Queen song ever recorded was, May said the answer changes every time, but “my favorite at the moment is ‘Made in Heaven,’ which was never a single but it’s the title track off the  album we made after Freddie was gone with all the pieces that were left. “I’ve just been doing something very similar because we found a few more tracks with Freddie singing and all of us playing and they’re quite beautiful. People will be hearing this work toward the end of the year.”
I love Freddie Mercury. Not in the way that he would love me, but he was the best. If you can look me in the eyes and tell me a better vocalist than Freddie Mercury I’d probably rip your eyes out. On a serious note, the guy could write, sing and perform like nobody else, and the best part was he didn’t give a shit what anybody thought of him. He’d dress in drag for Queen’s music videos, sport a porn ‘stache and wear THE tightest clothes on stage. Then he’d belt out “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Somebody to Love” or “Fat Bottomed Girls” and you’d sit there and enjoy the shooting star that was singing for you. I can’t wait for this to come out. Long live The King.
Look I don’t know much. I floated through school, and I’d much rather drink a beer than read a book. With that said, I do recognize talent. This baby might not be able to speak or walk, but it will become the next big thing. That’s what happens when you watch footage of the greatest performer/ man with the best mustache ever. If there’s one person who’s life path I’d wish to follow it’s Freddie. Just a flawless, mistake free life in the fast lane. I never thought I’d be jealous of a baby, but I guess that’s what YouTube is for: to make me jealous of a person who literally shits their pants all day.
It was announced this weekend that Bruno Mars will perform at halftime of this years Superbowl. I think it goes without saying that this is a great pick. Mr. Mars is talented, handsome, and his voice literally makes us want to cry. He also happened to pass the most important hurdle of all: the SNL hosting test.
While we love the choice, it got us thinking: who would be our ideal performer for a Superbowl halftime show? We drank some beers, exchanged some ideas, and came up with our favorite
The ONLY thing that stops Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen from headlining every major event in America is the fact the Freddie died in 1991. Voice like an angel? Check. Dance moves that could make you tremble? Check. The body of a god and mustache to match? Check and check. Here is how this halftime show would go. Lights go out. 10 seconds go by and a single beam of light is pointed to the stage. Highlighted in it is Freddy Mercury sitting at a piano. Bohemian Rhapsody starts the performance with Freddie killing it at piano. The show then moves into ‘I want to Break Free’ and wraps with ‘Somebody to Love’. A simple 3 song set that will have the audience begging for more.
In my eyes, George Michael is the singer of our generation. Faith. Freedom. Father Figure. It seems as if every classic song that starts with an F has been sung by Mr. Michael. Did he possibly blow an undercover cop in a public restroom? Yes. But as a democratic nation I’d hope we could look past this act and let his flex those golden pipes. Back to the halftime show. The stage is empty, but you hear George’s voice in the background softly singing the word “faith”. It gets louder and louder until he finally hits the stage, accompanied by a slew of instruments. Next up is freedom, followed by closing the performance with Careless Whisper. Game. George Michael. Match.
