Today marks the 18th anniversary of Freddie's passing.
You might want to take a moment to remember just how fantastic Freddie was. Incomparable - in voice or song or performance. Remember what is what like to hear Bohemian Rhapsody that first time?
For me, I was absolutely dumbfounded. After about 100 more listens I could at least speak again!
Moments like this were frequent. After every new song I heard.
What about the first time you saw Freddie perform live? Whether it be live or from a video tape or DVD. You can could see he had what no other performer had.
Perhaps then, there were other songs that struck you as something amazing. I listened to "You Take My Breath Away" loads of times, sinking into the song as I lay on my bed, eyes shut. "A Winters Tale" was the song i had always been waiting for.
For most my life, from the age of 14 to now 34, Freddie has been hero. Not particularly conventional, but rediculously brilliant.
Freddie will never be forgotten.
