Hi
Can anybody here try to explain me the way they speak? I always wonder how they sound to english-speaking people (yes, I know, I just haven't anything better to do than wonder about irrelevant details). The only thing I know, is that I just can't understand when Freddie's speaking.

Freddie has a very English accent, in my opinion. There are touches of something else in there, but it's mainly a very posh southern accent.

As a Brit I can say that Freddie had a very well spoken English accent, he actually sounded posh/camp at times. I find him very clear and easy to understand.

yes there are bits of Persia(iran)/Zanzibar in there as well as Surrey (England)...but i think the greater part of his accent is Indian

I think Brian has a very Londoner accent.

Roger i'm guessing has a Norfolk accent.I could be wrong.

John? I'm not sure.A bit posh Midlands,i think.

John can't say his r's quite properly.

I heard Rod Stewart on the radio the other day and thought it was Rog.

Has he told you lately that he loves you?



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.
