I've never been impressed by any cover artist but this Gary Mullen guy is Freddie's vocal twin. They say everyone has a twin well I bet everyone has a twin and he's Freddie. I did a search on Gary Mullen and nothing came up on here, I'm sure someone else has pointed him out before. Anyway for those who dont know here's a link.

This guy has an amazing voice, really. I've never really seen him as a Freddie sound-a-like though... to be honest I'd really like to hear him sing something that isn't Queen.

Having said that - I bet he puts on a pretty good show. I would dearly like to jam Queen songs with someone who could sing them like that.

But to backpedal for a moment ; those clips are actually pretty good...

Shit! I may have to force their guitarist into catching hepatitis. I want a gig with this guy.

So then, if Johnny Depp isn't available, they should get this guy.

Now that was pretty good.... but do you wanna shit your pants??

Check out this guy doing "Dead On Time"... I would say 95% of the members of this website would be confused by this guy as Freddie....he's that close.

Tell me you disagree that this guy doesn't do a near spot on Freddie vocal...

HAHA I was going to mention this guy.

The amazing thing about this guy; he sounds like what Freddie Mercury would sound like if he took over someone else's body. Like... he uses such similar techniques and sounds, but because he's essentially got a different instrument, it doesn't quite sound like Freddie.

But both of these guys definitely put a lot of time into their act, and it shows.

Yeah, same here. The Q for a Day guy is really good. But he doesn't sound like Freddie. I agree with Zeb on the techniques though.

Garry Mullen does sound just like Freddie but I remember when I saw him on stars in your (their?) eyes the only fault I could pick was the shape of his head and the absence of the overbite

OMG, I found his myspace page. Thats not the OMG, the OMG is hearing him on Hammer to Fall. Justth first song tat started playing, havent evn listend to the othes but the tone, timbre is a near perfect match, even the way he pronounce his words. I say it's atleast a 85% perfect match. He's good, thats all there is to say.

--------edit----------

His higher rang almost matches Freddie's in the lowr ones he shows more of his indvidual vocal talets. I'm not saying they're bad I'm just saying he doesnt sound as much like Freddie when he sings lower.

Have you heard the singer of Queen For A Day? He sounds like Freddie so much at times - it scares me.


That's who my postings are up above...

What is the lead singer's name of Queen for a Day??

Do they have a website?

I think Gary Mullen and the Queen for a Day singer have the Freddie impersonator market cornered....

Both equally good in my opinion.... I think, no, I know that the band for Queen for a Day are better though.... on dead on time, and Keep Yourself alive their musicianship smokes Gary Mullen's band.

Watching those videos, I'd say that the "One Night Of Queen" videos are amazing, whereas the "Queen For A Day" videos were impressive, but not nearly in the same league. Not even close. The only thing that really stood out in the latter was the guitar. The former has pretty much the whole shebang.

Woah, that's kinda frightening. I love his voice, but he shouldn't imitate his moves. That makes it so fake.
