Most men can reach the whistle register, I think, but very few actually use it to sing.

I don't think he used the whistle register. He did use falsetto several times though.

Roger's range was quite large, actually, since he could hit very high notes without falsetto (such as the high E in 'More Of That Jazz'), but he could get them quite low as well ('Strange Frontier', 'I Wanna Testify').


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

All I know, is that within 10 minutes of playing 'In The Lap Of The Gods', half the neighborhood dogs would be on our front yard.

Pretty sure Roger never used whistle register. Not on record, anyway!

Both Roger and Freddie sang higher notes than the 880 Hz A on recordings. And I'm quite sure they both could get higher than their recorded notes.

I can sing about 13 octaves below the middle C.

The only thing is that I can't prove it, because you wouldn't be able to hear it

Was Freddie a baritone or a tenor?

Indeed that's always been a neverending debate. I'm positive he was a tenor: neither his speaking voice nor his singing matched that of a baritone. Montserrat's comment could be a misquote or she simply didn't take enough time to study his voice and properly classify it.

Well I was just trying to see if anyone would go for the bait (as this has been one of those muchly-argued topics over the years) but thanks for the food-for-thought.

I always rather figured that those definitions were more aimed at classical singing? I never found them very valid concerning Freddie, or other rock singers, who *really* don't do opera very well in the traditional sense.
I'm not bagging his work on Barcelona for a second; I loved it. However.... it really is just a rock singer singing prettier songs.

I loved 'Barcelona' too, but I'm aware that it shows that Montserrat's technique goes light years beyond Freddie's. Since pop/rock singers usually employ head voice most of the time, rather than chest, indeed the ranges involved are different, and so are the tracks themselves. Freddie was an extraordinary vocalist but of course he'd got loads of flaws.
