It's unbelievable to see how Freddie was a cultivated guy...and on interviews he acted as if he could hardly read books...my ass the guy surely read books...
Yes, I am always impressed with this point. Freddie was really cultured and cultivated. We can see it from his songs, too. There are a looot of famouse quotes, historical motif, religeon and literature related subjects in!
Glad you all mentioned that. Don't know why Freddie is seen as not cultivated to the arts, popular culture, film or books.
Think about it. he loved and explored EVERY realm of music...from popular to classic, ie; rock, pop, jazz, dancehall, vaudeville, glam, metal, disco, R&B, soul, rockabilly, opera.
He loved different types of dance as well, from contemporary disco to ballet.
He adored Hendrix, Liza Minelli, Aretha Franklin, Montseratt Caballe, Vaslav Nijinsky, The Royal Ballet.
Freddie was an artist to, designing Queen's crest and alot of their album covers, and videos.
He wore jeans and T-shirts, and tuxes with tails.
The guy could rock or go to the opera or ballet.
I think Freddie was VERY well rounded, aware of all art forms and loved exploring them all.
