“If I Had To Do It All Over Again, Why Not?”

To say that Queen’s Freddie Mercury was talented is like saying that the Sistine Chapel was a great paintingNo – he was a once in a lifetime force of nature that you had to see to believe, and no amount of concert footage or studio recordings can come close to the magic that happened when Freddie opened his mouth and began to sing, or put pen to paper and began to write, or set foot onstage. 24 years after the Queen singer’s death at 45, we’re still as transfixed by this intensely private but extraordinary human being as we ever were – but why?

Fun Fact: Freddie Mercury was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of Queen in 2001.

Is it the fact that Freddie set the bar impossibly high for himself yet still found ways to challenge and outdo himself? Is it his unbeatable spirit that found him singing up until the very end, determined to leave a legacy unmarred by an illness that had no business claiming his life? We don’t know. What we do know, however, is that his is a loss that can never be overstated, and that somehow the world seems a little brighter every time he visits us in the form of one of our favorite Queen songs.

In honor of a life well lived, join us in remembering Freddie Mercury with the finest performance of his entire career – ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ live at The Bowl in 1982. Somehow, we think he’d approve.


Rest in peace, Freddie.
