Happy Birthday Freddie

Beyond appreciating the classic Queen hits, I don't  know much about one of John's favorite musicians, frontman Freddie Mercury.  Recently though I feel like things Freddie-related have been all over.  I've been hearing awesome songs that I never knew were Queen and last month I was on Zanzibar, Mercury's birthplace where the locals are very proud of their native son.  While I didn't go to the bar dedicated to him, I did get John a postcard that said We Will Rock You with an awesome photo of Freddie.  Today would have been his 65th birthday and Google made a very cool tribute video.  Check it out.  For a good short bio see here.
