I guess growing up in the 70s and 80s I was never a huge Queen fan (except We Will Rock You which every sporting event knew), however, as I "matured" I have come to appreciate more bands and really great singers. Mercury had a voice that is almost impossible to duplicate. American Idol star Adam Lambert has been the closest. But Mercury could do things with his voice and singing that no-one else could. I'd be interested in seeing the film. Not sure I will go pay to see it but I would like to know more of the history of the band.

I'm on the same page. never really appreciated their music until I matured a bit (still got a ways to go).

 

while I won't see the movie in the theatre, I will likely see it when it comes out on dvd.

A Christian rock singer named Marc Martel has been touring with queen recently. That dude dang-near channels the Freddie Mercury sound.

I am with you. I was never a big fan back in the day, but upon reflection Queen had a unique sound and Mercury was a great rock singer!

Don't they say his voice range spanned seven octaves?

I am about the same as you guys. Wasn't a big Queen fan but liked some of their songs. I will probably watch it when it comes to dvd.

You guys missed the boat. I was listening to them back in the seventies. Killer Queen still has one of the coolest bass line and slickest lyrics in rock n roll. Everybody in that band was a virtuoso on their instrument. Freddie was a hell of a pianist as well as a vocalist.

An one of the all time musical spectacular performers ,a very intelligent man actually near genius , An innovator and rappers have Nothing on him ,He invented it !. If You've never listened to Frank Zappa , I highly recommend it ,as well as Pink Floyd ...

Not a big fan, until I got older. Many of their tunes are now epic, rock anthems. Mercury had a helluva range. One my favorites is: Somebody To Love.

We used to always hum Another One Bites the Dust when we were doing CPR on patients. They teach you to push to the cadence of Stayin Alive by the Bee Gees but you know how firemen can be...
