He was the unassuming, shrinking violet, who became one of the biggest music legends of all time. The man with the engaging personality and smile; the man that the entire world adored. The man with the most incredible vocal range that has ever been recorded. He used to keep a notebook by his bed so that he could write down lyrics from his dreams and work them into threads of silver enchantment; he kept the world spellbound with his powerful stage persona.
Queen were a staple in music throughout my childhood, and everybody above the age of two back then knew all about Freddie. Handsome with beautiful, chocolate eyes, and a voice that could shake even my father’s hi-tec speakers with its range and volume. He weaved his magic with his voice, his pen and his piano… and we were entangled en masse, a public who were utterly spellbound.
It’s been 26 years today, Freddie. The world still loves you. You still rock us, and you will live forever.
