Freddie


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.

He could sing fairly low, yes, and I think that's him. It's definately not Roger.

Can't be Freddie or Roger, their voices are too high. Freddie tried singing low whilst singing Brian's bits in Who Wants To Live Forever in the Wembley Magic show. Must be Brian. Or John perhaps?

No it's Freddie. His range of notes was EXTREMLY impressive.

Maybe they speeded up the the recording when he was singing this part. Like they did with ITLOTG...


Does anybody know what we are living for?

Nah that can't be it. Actually when you listen to ITLOTG (R...), you can here a similar voice during the chorus. Don't know who that is either...

That's why I put a question mark. You don't know that. And neither do I. You can't get fairer than that.

They would've credited him, and I can't imagine him being so shy as to not get a credit by that point in the band's career.

I used to think it was John too but it's most likely Freddie.

Freddie could reach lower notes than Brian.

Mike Stone - no, he was in GOFLB though

Brian - too low for him. He could technically sing those notes, perhaps, but it doesn`t mean it was him. Technically he could also sing the bridge of Sail Away Sweet Sister but there`s a reason he let Fred do it

John - Everybody who can speak "can" sing (defining it as doing a melody). But judging by his speaking voice and the fact he probably didn`t have much practice as vocalist, that note is, first, too low for him, second, too "proffessional" for him, third, the timbre doesn`t match him, fourth, neither does the accent

Fred - He could sing very low, in fact that "find me somebody to love" thing isn`t even the lowest he sang in that song. At the end of the interlude he sings a low F. Other songs where Fred demonstrates his skills singing low are Bo Rhap (the low "no no no no no no no" and more parts), Lily Of The Valley ("follow every..."), Black Queen ("bears a will..."), All Dead (last chorus, again a low F), some backing vocals of the Barcelona album, a part of Your Kind Of Lover, many times in All God`s People, the octave voice in Flick Of The Wrist and a large etc

Roger - He`s so under-rated when it comes to low range imo. Most people think he could "only" sing the high falsettos, but it`s not true. By one side, he could sing incredibly high notes without falsetto (e.g. More Of That Jazz, I`m In Love With My Car...), by other side he was very good in the low registre as well (listen to the intro of I Wanna Testify)

As far as I know, Brian shut up during the bridge, only said "way too soon", at least in the version I`ve got
