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.
