From the latest issue of Rolling Stone.  (RS 1119, Dec 9, 2010)

Q:  What singers really move you?

A:  Freddie Mercury.  Queen's music sounds like theathre and that's something that Freddie brought to rock.  "Killer Queen" and "Somebody To Love"  all those big-ass arrangements.  He didn't think small, and even when he did, it was for minimalist masterpieces like "We Will Rock You" or "Another One Bites The Dust".  I just think he's awesome, and he's a gorgeous vocalist.

RIght on, Cee Lo, so do we.  I can see Freddie being a fan of Cee Lo's latest track.

There are a number of things that happen in life that make you realise you're getting old.
One of those is not having a clue who most of the people in the music charts are anymore....
The other is buying albums by The Chelsea Pensioners. Thankfully I can't see that happening for some time (unless Brian does a guitar solo on one of their tracks...)

Good on Cee Lo for the Freddie love.

"Fuck You" is an incredibly fun song that everyone should check out at least once.
