Mercury anticipated that his life would be turned into a movie. “I have visions of actually having a film made of my life story, one day, which I would have a key part in,” said Mercury. “I might not play the lead myself. My dears, the things I’ve done in my lifetime… it’ll be totally triple-X-rated, I’ll tell you!”
Queen, who doesn’t know them? This legendary rock band, in particular singer Freddie Mercury, has the necessary hits to his name. Are you one of those people who, after a few beers, think that your version of Bohemian Rhapsody is so good that you sing along loudly with the radio, despite the fact that nobody has asked for this? Now you have a reason.
Well, what can be said. It is literally in the title. You can sing along Queen songs. We thought SingStar Queen on PlayStation 2 & 3 had already satisfied enough people, but now Let’s Sing Queen is going to fill the void for Queen fans on PlayStation 4. If you are already mouth watering now, don’t worry. Let’s Sing Queen will be released on October 2.
⠀ Freddie loved his cars although he never got driving license since it made him bored.⠀ ⠀ Freddie owned a 1950 Studebaker Champion, designed by Raymond Loewy, it was used in cargo carriers and tanks during World War II.⠀ ⠀ He also owned a Daimler Limousine, it was bought by Freddie as Queen started becoming more successful and this kind of car was used by Swedish, Danish and English royal families.⠀ ⠀ The Daimler Limousine was replaced by a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and it was of course driven by a chauffeur since Freddie didn’t have his license. His car was finished in light grey, with grey leather interiors and wood trims, and featured a cassette player and an in-car telephone. Latest tech back in the day! It was later sold at auction by Coy’s.⠀ ⠀
This is Queen’s first performance in Argentina. The band have plenty to prove to their new South American audiences – something they haven’t needed to do on this level in several years, which would lead to seven incredibly energetic performances over the next three weeks.
Queen were the first rock band to play the big football stadiums in South America – a huge accomplishment. Just to grasp the idea of how popular the band were at the time, 9 of the top 10 albums in the Argentinian album chart were Queen albums. Reflecting on 1981, John Deacon later said it was “A year for discovering new audiences we didn’t know existed.” Similar to their first visit to Japan, they were being treated like The Beatles in America in 1964. Radio and TV stations would interrupt regularly scheduled programs with special Queen news bulletins. More pictures in the read more
