R.I.P. – Freddie Mercury (19th Anniversary)

Freddie Mercury (1946-1991)

Today marks 19 years since the death of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, one of the greatest Rock singers of all time. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 19 years since his passing but the music Freddie created with Queen and as a solo artist will live on forever. Queen will always be one of my favorite bands and Freddie one of my favorite singers. Rest in peace…..

 

Unreleased tracks from Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson surface on Youtube

From Contact Music:

BRIAN MAY is furious after “music thieves” exploited MICHAEL JACKSON’s death by releasing previously unheard tracks by the King Of Pop and QUEEN’s late frontman FREDDIE MERCURY on the Internet.
Jackson, who passed away last week (25Jun09), and Mercury worked together in the 1980s on a number of tracks that have never been heard by the public.

May revealed the existence of the songs earlier this week saying, “He (Jackson) used to come and see us when we were on tour in the States. He and Freddie became close friends, close enough to record a couple of tracks together at Michael’s house, tracks which have never seen the light of day.” But the rocker has been left incensed after two tunes by the pair, ‘State Of Shock’ and ‘There Must Be More To Life Than This’, ended up on video sharing website YouTube.com. He fumes, “The music thieves at work as usual.”

It’s still hard to believe that it’s been 17 years since Freddie Mercury passed away. I’ve been a Queen fan since I was a young kid and he has always been my favorite vocalist. I never got to see Queen in concert with Freddie at the mic but, from the DVDs I own, I know that they were spectacular. Here’s to you Freddie! Thank you for your music and all the memories. May you rest in peace…..

Sixteen years ago, my favorite singer, Freddie Mercury passed away at 45 years young. To this day, Freddie is remembered by family, friends, and fans and his legend continues to grow. I never had the chance to see Queen live with Freddie at the mic but the music they created is just as special now as it was when I first heard it. Rest in peace Freddie…..
