Freddie Mercury was a god gift to music
29 January 2008 | by icet2004See all my reviews

Freddie Mercury AKA Farrokh Bulsara is the biggest Asian music star ever.Queen were a British rock band formed in 1970 in London. But this documentary was good.duet Barcelona with Montserrat Gabbale is easily one of greatest songs ever recorded.Queen was a stunning band.the greatest band ever.the have sold 300 millions albums. all other superstars said good words about Freddie.Paul Mccartney, Rober Plant,Lisa Minelli,Elton John,David Bowie and Slash. Bohemain Rhapsody no doubt this one of most beautiful songs what ever made,but Freddie mercury we all know that he was gay(i'm straight) but what is so special that someone is gay?Freddie was talented. Queen is still one of most legendary bands of all time.Freddie's voice is same good as Enrico Caruso and Luciano Pavarotti.he was a real master.
