Freddie Mercury – Legacy
As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range.
As a songwriter, Mercury composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen”, “Somebody to Love”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and “We Are the Champions”.
One of the greatest rock performances in history – it’s considered maybe the greatest – for some reasons our producers [Brian May and Roger Taylor] thought it would be a good idea to start with that [the performance of Freddie Mercury and Queen at Live Aid] on day one.
They must have a reason for doing this because if halfway through this and we suck, they’ll just pull the plug on the whole productions, pack it up, and go home.
Save 60 million dollars.
When I got the call sheet for day two, it was like winning an Oscar.
