July 28, 2020   Seraja   0

It has revealed that the iconic British singer and the frontman of Queen, Freddie Mercury, had celebrated Roger Taylor’s birthday 34 years ago by spending a huge amount of money.

A fan page of Freddie Mercury has shared a rare video from the drummer Roger Taylor’s 37th birthday in honor of his 71st birthday this year. In the video, the bandmate of Taylor, Freddie Mercury seems as the organizer of the surprise party.

Mercury displays his strong bond with Taylor, as the video shows, and jokes around him saying about the drummer figure on the top of the cake that it is their new drummer. He also tries to trick Taylor by claiming a girl is going to pop out of that cake

According to the fan page, the birthday party Freddie Mercury threw in his own presidential suite in Budapest cost £5000, which was a large amount of money considering the years the party was given

Roger Taylor says Queen would still be making music today if Freddie Mercury was alive

July 4, 2020   Seraja   2

Queen drummer Roger Taylor has said the band would still be making music today if Freddie Mercury was still alive.

Speaking to BBC Radio 6 Music, Taylor suggested that a whole new era of music from the rock icons would have arrived if Mercury hadn’t passed away in November 1991.

He said: “I do believe that. Me and Freddie… he was my closest friend and we were very, very close. We came up together and we literally lived in each other’s pockets and clothes some of the time!”

However, he admitted that it’s unlikely that bassist John Deacon would have remained in the group, having retired from the music industry in 1997.

I do believe we would still being doing stuff together because it was a great collaboration. I don’t know if John Deacon would allow… of course John wasn’t quite mentally suited for it, the other three were,” he said.

“I would like to think we were still doing stuff together, whatever it might be. I think Brian May and I with Adam Lambert, we just loved doing the show, just seemed to get better and better, while we still can do it, we still will do it.”

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Queen will appear on the face of UK postage stamps in honour of their 50th anniversary. They will be the third rock band to do so, joining The Beatles in 2007 and Pink Floyd

The stamps will be issued as a set of 13, featuring eight album covers, four live group shots and a classic group photo. The entire collection will be available to purchase on July 9.

Freddie was the pure entertainer

“Freddie was the pure entertainer, he didn’t care for money or organisation. He was responsible for the show and the one who instilled in us the belief that we had to make people gasp every time. Freddie never hid it, his fuel was his audience, his fans. Freddie Said: ‘Yes, I like an audience to respond to us wildly. Maybe sometimes we’d like them to sit down and listen to some of the songs and what we want to say, but I get a lot more from them when they’re going wild, and it bring more out of me, that’s how I work’.”
