    The Mercury rose beyond expectation, and left us wth memories to cherish forever, although I did, with the rest of the audience boo him and Queen at Sunbury in 1975.

    Wow, imagine if he were alive today. besides more amazing music we’d probably have this amazing collection of duets. From Rock & Roll to Country and Pop, to even operatic performances. Can you just picture him doing a guest performance with Pavarotti in his final year?! (He would have totally kept up and probably the two of them would have brought us to tears.)

    Freddie and Queen left me with many vivid memories of their live shows (I saw them 13 times through the years). Listening to and watching Queen had a profound influence on me and fed my love of music. Freddie’s creativity and musical talents remain a major inspiration to me (and I’m sure many, many others) to this day.
    Thanks for reminding us, Warren!

    I skived school to buy the Miracle of all it’s formats the day it came out – from Our Price in Carlisle town centre. Got all the promo stuff there too! Unfortunately never got to see them live apart from the Tribute concert – I remember tears at the end of that when they showed him raising his crown to us all using footage of the Magic Tour. What a great touchstone – they covered so many different styles and I’m still trying to figure out how they did that spacey lift in to the solo of ‘Prophet Song’! A wide palette for any songwriter. And hats off to them with the recent remasters that sound great from what I’ve heard (I’m sticking to the originals though). I wore out my mums copy of Greatest Hits as a kid – and no matter what album, they were still peppered with great music. A true giant, and a one off. spun ‘I Go Crazy’ the other day – what a blast! Very respectable b-sides too. Happy Birthday Fred!
