I just got home from a Tina Turner concert. I mean 69 years old, and still the Queen of Rock and Roll. It would have been wonderful if they had recorded a duet, i mean Freddie and Tina!! That would have been something special, both very powerful charismatic performers and great singers. Why did this never happened? Bowie, Jagger, Adams and Stewart, but no Freddie and Tina. What do you think of this could have been explosive duet!??

Btw, really great show, she still delivers!!

You re thoughts on the this.

Oh. :))) That was really lovely.

Yes, she is amazing, isn't she? I bet you're feeling just great and very well impressed by her strength, talent and determination. 

I agree with you, I think it'd have been lovely to see both of them performing together - they conquered the state as few in the business.

It's, in fact, one of Live Aid's highlights apart from Queen: Tina and Mick Jagger singing "State of Shock" - which is interesting because, if my memory serves me right, and I don't think it does late at night, because Michael Jackson originally recorded the song with Freddie Mercury, though the single by The Jacksons ended up featuring Mick Jagger, a singer who's very underated, in my humble opinion - he's an example of a frontman who really trained and worked hard to become a real, talented and exciting singer. He improved so much over the years, to his credit. Some of the Stones latest tours have been just amazing, as far as my taste goes.

I can't think of any other reason for them not performing together other than the fact that Michael had already released a single with Jagger and went on to collaborate with other people as Freddie was all too busy with the Hot Space and Works tours - if Freddie had released a single with Michael, I guess he'd have been half-way to recording something or performing with Tina. 

I guess the main reason was lack of time, problems of schedule, it just wasn't to be: Freddie could have had a larger role in Michael's recordings and videos, but time didn't allow it; and then came the Works Tour, the Live Aid, which catapulted Queen to fame again, the magic tour, the side-projects he was interested in at that time - his solo album, the work with Monserrat...

That'd have been a hell of a show, yes, I guess it would.

Thanks for sharing this with us! She's amazing!

Lovely post.

That would have been brilliant if it happened , Tina collaborates very well with other singers.

My friend told me, this is no joke, that he would "MAKE LOVE TO TINA TURNER"... scary, isn't it? Oh well. She's not that great of a singer... I think Britney Spears sings better.

But you mentioned people with more solar, yes solar, albums than Freddie, so I think that may be a reason. I don't Roger Taylor would of liked Tina on a Queen recording.

I've always wondered also about it. She has a great voice and a duet with Freddie's raspy voice could be wonderful (80's nostalgia). I thought that they met, as I've assumed that this
in the Living On My Own video was Tina Turner. How silly of me.

The beauty spot is right where it should have been, and it's one of her most distinctive marks.

And Freddie loved Tina's music
