Time magazine (Asian edition) has a cover story on 60 years of Asian heroes. Freddie is included among artists & thinkers, together with Akira Kurosawa, Amartya Sen, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and others. Very nice write-up, even though nothing new for a Queen fan. From the article:

"Bulsara duplicated in popular music what other Indians—such as Salman Rushdie and Vikram Seth—have done in literature: taking the colonizer's art form and representing it in a manner richer and more dazzling than many Anglophones thought possible. But in his case, the empire wasn't merely writing back—it was singing its heart out in arenas all over the world in a voice that spanned nearly four octaves. Put on Queen's Greatest Hits at any party, anywhere, and there will be a song to bring a smile to the face of almost anyone, of any age. No other Asian musician or pop-cultural figure has enjoyed the same universal appeal: that Bulsara was able to achieve this as an openly gay man from India is further testament to his gift. It's time to recognize him as the great Asian artist that he was, and to bring his memory home."

Wish you were THE FIRST Queenzoner to travel to the moon as well! And "lift off"... :-)


Shoot for the moon... even if you fail you will land among the stars!

I always thought Freddie was Persian rather than Indian?

OK, so I wonder how some of you got copies of this. I could not find it at Barnes and Noble in the US. Is this a British magazine?
