Wow, that was incredible.  That's probably the best Freddie imitator I've seen yet.

Good, but I like Gary's voice better.

Too much vibrato and his accent seeps through in places, but overall it’s really not bad.

Re: that Japanese one.

I haven't laughed so hard at a Bohemian Rhapsody since I saw the Bad News version for the first time.

Crane is OK, but I still believe that Mullen is the best out there at the moment.  He's not quite 100% the voice that Freddie was, but is pretty darn close and getting better every time I see him.  Lovely guy, too!

I can't help but feel kind of sad that some of these singers are in tribute bands as opposed to making their own stuff...

I saw an interview with the Jap Freddie once, he actually got offended when the interviewer suggested he didn't look like Freddie!

It's quite possible that they do.  But if you're doing theatre gigs and outdoor festivals making a grand a night for each guy in the band, why even bother?  From a business perspective, you're probably not going to do much better than that.

I definitely can't argue against that. And I definitely can't blame them!
