Hi. lately i've been thinking, was Freddie a copycat? Not as a musician (although theres a lot of resemblance from others, the song "Let It Bleed" as one example; 'rest your weary head' But his persona and life... And the two people he seemed to copy the most are Mick Jagger and David Bowie.
Like the sequined leotards, Mick had that first. Also interesting how David Bowie was fascinated by Germany and had moved there,. Bam! What do you know, Freddie also moved to Germany..
WHat do you think? I'm not saying that hes a thief, i like his voice and music but i don't think he was 100% original.

Maybe cos Germany was the 'place to be' and it was to escape the Tax man. Also Munich and places like that were big 'gay' attractions.

Roger: Freddie wouldn't be running around pretending to be mick jagger....

something like that was said by roger in the magic years box set during the wembly section.

freddie wanted to be original and i think that the contrasts between mick and freddie are just coincidences.

I don't know, but I know I copied it from HIM.

This thread should be retitled "Dan Corson: Copycat?"

Well, I have a bit of a feeling that Freddie did not get the mustache originally... I just really cannot see Freddie pretending to be another musician.

Coincidences? "Time waits for no one", the only difference changed the last word to 'nobody', how original and then bandmembers dressing in drag... what else do you need, why can't you people just admit it?

To 'The Audacity of Charles':

1. I am not a musician 2. sure there are similarities between those guys but what i mentioned is just TOO similar

Ex, A. Two successful bands. But when one dresses up for an album, and then another one decides to do the same in a video.. its been copied.
B. Two very famous singers. One moves to Germany, then another one does the same. Pattern?

Now thats no coincidence, maybe he thought thats what makes him a rockstar.. but instead it looks like he copied off two other big rockstars.

WHY are you still talking about ancestors? I'm talking about at that time, that he suddenly made those moves right after other musicians.
Yes if it was a hundred years ago, it would make sense, but all that so sudden looks like copying.
