After all these years, I haven't heard any singer who comes close to Freddie's voice.

His voice still moves me sometimes, whether it's from the 70s, or 80s, or 90s.

I was just listening to A Kind of Magic Album, Give me the Prize. Freddie's performance there is still stunning. Still great.

Now, more than ever, There can only be one!!


Also, Brian May's guitar is amazing!

I think Brian May is the best Guitarist ever.
Obviously Freddie was the best Lead singer ever.

Those two were the best, and that's why Queen is the best band ever!

You're exactly right... still to THIS day, no one has come close to Freddie's voice, NOR Brian's Guitar playing!! It's funyn cuz I've always been thinking this.... they are truly incredible.....one of a kind! :) It's amazing.....I STILL sometimes get chills hearing Freddie's voice and the whole band play - They ARE the BEST band EVER!! Yes!!! Everyone knows Brian is THE best Guitarist ever !! LOL... of course!!! Freddie was and STILL is the BEST frontman ever!!!....... and I love it :)

I also agree.
Music nowadays isn't as good as it used to be...it's a shame the music industry has lost its magic touch today. I'm not saying all music today is rubbish but alot of it is either...

1) Some idiot trying to make 'a fast buck' from re-mixing and, in my opinion, ruining a perfectly good song!

2) These dance mixes, too fast, bad quality and makes you nearly cry in despair when it comes on the radio!

3) Some rapper who can't sing to save his life, just saying words over and over again in the same note! Enriched with a violent approach, bad language, drugs, sex, etc, which really contributes to all the crime, disgraceful attitude and shit that ruins this world!
The only thing i would get out of this music is a massive headache!

4) Some pathetic excuse of a band who do one song, it goes to number one and they take the money and run never to be seen again!

I don't think music today can even match Queen's talent, energy and creativity!
I don't think anyone could match the power of Freddie's voice or the complexity and amazing guitar work from Brian.
This is why Queen is so popular and remembered so well, because people like us would rather appreciate real music by the band who have, in my view, created rock and their own genre of music.
The people who take the piss out of us for liking Queen are the real assholes. They can't understand real music and can't appreciate it like we do.
Queen, even today, would be better than any other music and will always be remembered in music history!
Queen rule always! Love ya!

I also agree completely, you took the words right out of my mouth.

Sorry but music today is shit. I mean yea there are some really great artists in my opinion like the Foo Fighters and James Blunt. I mean for todays music their very good. I personally don't listen to modern day music.

Freddie IS THE BEST vocalist and frontman ever. End of story, I could seriously talk about this all day. He has such a strong amazing powerful voice. His voice is so unique, it's amazing.

Brian May is god. Serisouly I worship the man, he's incredible. I mean yea people like Jimmy Page are also amazing, but not NEAR as unique as Brian is.

And yes Queen is THE best band ever without a doubt!!!

Well, I won't deny that Freddie was a great singer in the studio, but live he is eclipsed by contemporary heroes such as James Blunt, Robbie Williams, Britney Spears and Enrico Iglesias. I mean, come on, seriously....

Well, i can agree that Freddie`s voice live was sometimes not very good...but come on, the songs that Queen performed are much more diffult then the softer songs that Robbie sings!
But, noone can disagree with me that when freddie`s voice was in good shape live, it was top notch!
"Gimme the prize" is so heavy and powerful, love it! Wonder if that song could ever be done live....

Seriously??? OK.

James Blunt is a Colin Hay starter kit. Hay has been doing what Blunt just started doing for nearly 10 years now.

Robbie Williams biggest success is a poor cover of a classic anthem. He even needed to borrow a band.

Britney Spears is a piece of ass

Enrico Iglesias is another Marc Antony/Ricky Martin clone. He'll never measure up to his father.

Seriously.

My mum hates Freddie's voice. I know, she's crazy. Every time I turn on Queen at her place she goes like :"He's just screaming, it so annoying, it's just screams" . Pain in the ass.
Of course, I think he is the best singer ever.

I agree that you can hear Freddie "scream" in some of his songs specially late in his career as frontman for Queen or as a solo artist. This is because through the years, his singing voice has become a bit lower and he has modified his singing style. He hits his highest notes with a full voice and not with a falsetto. Freddie's voice, to me, was at its best during the 70's when he could sing like an angel, specially evident in songs like "My Fairy King", "The Night Comes Down", "White Queen(As It Began)", "Lily Of The Valley", "Love of My Life", and of course the immortal "Bohemian Rhapsody"! But whether he "screams" or not in his songs, to me Freddie is and will always be the greatest singer ever.

you can't know much about singing if you think freddie is screaming. I actually love freddies live voice as much as his studio voice, even with the cracks and everything. Live at wembly he was so powerfull, even though he wasn't totally on his game.

HE WAS SO GREAT!!!!!!

I never get bored of his voice because of his variety.It was changing so much in every new song queen released.It was either a smooth sound (like in crazy little thing called love) up to a really powerfull type (we are the champions) then up to the unbeatable (the show must go on).Number 1 for me every time!

People entitled to opinions? yes, but the above is an example of a stupid opinion. A very very stupid opinion.

Freddie is the best singer ever. Whoever says that Britney Spears is a "better" live singer needs to gget their ears checked.

ditto!
He's so amazing that I also never get bored of his voice, even though I listen to him everyday. Well, the more I listen to his voice, the more I want to listen to him. I've never had such a feeling to any other singer.
