FREDDIE MERCURY/ QUEEN: ..."Bohemian Rhapsody" ... "Fat Bottomed Girl's" ... "We Will Rock You/ Let Me Entertain You" ...






This posting for the music selection, will be to honour the legendary 20th century composer/ songwriter, pianist, string's, and vocalist/ frontman Mr. Freddie Mercury, who's birthday is this month ... although he passed away back in 1991. Mr. Mercury, truely elite in his composition and work, and for some in the industry he could be a difficult man to work with ... Mr. Mercury was a sort of workaholic, an extremist, and perfectionist, his composition although turned over very well in mainstream classic rock categories ... but was anything but mainstream composition in the industry ... a trademark artist if you will, such as the Beatles were in their era. He had to be one of my favourite vocalist's as well, because of the wide range of vocal style ability, power, and range... and also the way he composed/ wrote ... building from an acoustic string's solo or a variety of piano's/ keyboard's, and all on memory. But you never knew what to expect out of this man as far as the next project, as far as style ... and a complete frontman as far as keeping the audience captivated and involved. Their live performance's were also perfection as far as engineering.

It was a task to figure out what to post in this 3 piece compilation, because of the versatility in song structure, to try to give a fair overview ... I mean I could have posted a half dozen that would have had all different style's and root's as well. But I chose 3 live piece's to post that were well known in the industry. And THANK YOU SIR ... for all the great art! Enjoy!
