Isn't it funny how you always hear john roger and brian talk about how great freddie was, but you never hear freddie talk about how good the others were...just shows everyone wants to hear about freddie.

Also was just thinking how lucky freddie was. Saw a picture of him at an airport with him getting off the plane and a limo waiting for him...that's the life, he had it and now it's gone. Fuck did he realise just how lucky he was. Even if i was brian may i wouldn't feel half the star that freddie was. Just such an interesting person, everything about him. There has to be a film made about him...sad thing is that people like johnny cash and elvis seem to be more popular yet they hadn't half the talent or charisma as freddie.

He was very photogenic, but wud he have looked as good if he had his mouth open in them all...see everyone has a bad point! Just think he was at the right time to be a rock star...something sexier about being a rock star in the 70's than say the 00's

No need to talk of how good Brian, Roger and John were/are. The music does it for them!

Slow down there, Uni-ball. On our planet, Earth, Elvis was just about as big as there has ever been. Freddie was great, but he was no Elvis.

You speak of Charisma. Elvis was the epitomy of Charisma. Even bloated Elvis could still pull 'em in. Young and old, they ALL wanted Elvis.

And if you're even suggesting that Logan Place could pull in the same crowds as Graceland does yearly, you're completly off you're rocker.

Why not actually listen to what Elvis or Johnny did before making a unfounded and unsubstantiated claim? And don't say you have. If you had, you would have never posted this.

*cue the psycho Freddie fan music*

Of course everyone talks about Freddie now - he's dead! No one speaks ill of the dead and of course everyone's going to talk about how wonderful he was and what an overwhelming contribution he made. He's dead! And people always say good things about people after they're gone! For people who only know Queen since Freddie's death and think he was always universally revered and acclaimed, go back and read reviews of the band and their work from back in the day - from the 70s and 80s. A lot of it was elss than glowing and a lot of it was aimed squarely at Mister Mercury.

Freddie Mercury was a great talent and his work and reputation stand for themselves. His memory certainly doesn't need you trying to build him up into some kind of cartoonish superman that he wasn't.

I concur! Point very well taken. I grew up with Queen in the 70's and remember any review dealing with the band usually being negative. And Freddie was always a target. People that have become fans after his death really don't grasp the things that were written about them back then. But then again the fans are what put them at the top by buying the music. The critics got those records they were to review for free.

I don't think you can say who was the best, as they all have their great characteristics. I think it would be boring if just one person could have the best place. I think Freddie is in with the best entertainers. Nobody will ever forget Live Aid in London, the best rock concert ever in the history of the world and the Queen performance was one of the best. As much as I admire the other members of Queen and their talent, I can't imagine they would be 1/4 as good without Freddie as the front man.


I'm ignorant as I've never seen Queen without Freddie and I'm always in two minds if they should carry on with the same name without him. I know they put as much into Queen with their song writing and musical talent, but Freddie had the magic. I've never seen anybody else perform the same music and make it as special. Freddie was always very modest though and always said he wasn't the leader as they were all equal. I can always pick up that Roger Taylor was his longest friend, as he has a bit of magic about him too. Brian is a great guitarist and I have to say I'm ignorant about guitar players but he comes across as a bit nerdy to me. Maybe that's special about them, as they don't fit a mould and I shouldn't be judgemental.

I was born in 1970 so sort of missed their very early stuff and Freddie had a solo career in the 1980s with great songs. When I was about 14 I saw I was born to love you, on TOTP and loved it, so I was a fan from then. Then I saw them on Live Aid in London the whole concert was an experience with so many great performers, but when Queen come on it was magic as Freddie had all those people in the palm of his hand. I bought the box set of Queen and the third disk had some things made after Freddie died and I liked it. I liked Brians song for the Ford advert. I don't really remember anything bad written about them as they seemed to be popular to me. I don't think it would be right to say who was the best performer in the world, as it would be boring if there just had to be one but as far as I'm concerned Freddie is a legend who will always be remembered. They will be one of the great classics from our age.

actually sailors cum is used as a field source for some third world countries. There is quiet a market for it nowadays.

also elvis could never in his life write a song like bohemian rhapsody or sing like freddie, he is absolute NOBODY compared to freddie but stupid people cant understand that. Same with johnny cash. No one comes close to freddie, he is just on a super human level.

Why are we comparing Freddie with Elvis just because one person felt the need to compare? Elvis was good looking as some kind of teenage icon. You know the type that teenage girls with raging hormones have a crush on before they get a real boyfriend, and later on he sang more sophisticated songs, but it's in another league than Queen with Freddie, as they're like the Mozart of their day with their talent.

I don't have anything against Elvis as he is in with the best, so why does that person feel one person has to fit into a top category? It would be a boring world if everybody was the same.

I don't remember anybody taking any notice of music critics. They're just people who couldn't do it themselves so they need to make money writing about people who can. As far as I can remember, on the whole people have mostly said nice things about Queen.

I don't think Queen have ever been in the 'Take That' type category where the fans have been mostly teenage girls with a crush. Their music has always fitted into the tastes of more sophisticated people. If I had to pinpoint times when Queen have been the most popular with the teenybopper type fans, it was when they first started with their glam rock type look, then late 70s and early 80s with punk and new romantics they died down a bit, then mid 80s they had a revival with their live performances and their songs such as Radio Ga Ga; We will Rock You; We are the Champions, were being played everywhere. Now we can look back and see it as a whole.

I was about 15 for the Live Aid performance and Freddie was like some kind of supergod as everybody was talking about his performance. I mean it was a magical day as a whole with great performers such as Duran Duran, Elton, Eurythmics, Bryan Ferry with Pink Floyd, Ultravox, Spandau Ballet, Mick Jagger, Phill Collins, Sting, U2, to name just a few but I don't know anybody who didn't say Queen was the best on that day. I think that USA musical stars are the most popular as they have the biggest promoters and image makers who try to sell as much as quickly as possible to make as much money as quickly as possible, but I don't think they make as good quality music that lasts the test of time as British music or even Irish, Swedish and Australian.

1. Elvis sang to more people than Freddie... by millions.

2. Elvis had more albums than Freddie and his bands

3. Elvis had more #1s than Freddie and his bands

4. Elvis had better teeth

5. Elvis had a better wardrobe

6. Elvis had only the best shit, Freddie was a cokehead.

7. Elvis got Priscilla Barnes, and possibly Marilyn Monroe. Freddie got Mary Austin... and possibly Jim Hutton.

8. Elvis has a bigger estate. Much bigger. (Possible double meaning)

9. Elvis not only had his rock career, but was an accomplished gospel singer as well. Freddie did a pretty cheesy Opera album.

10. Elvis lives.

Scoreboard Elvis, you TM'd sheep. No wonder your band outed you. And I thought it was just for being gay.
