Were you at the Queen gig at Wembley in 1986? If so, I hate you.
Freddie Mercury. What a performer.
After spending a fair chunk of my evening lamenting the fact that I wasn’t born a decade or two earlier, I came across George Michael’s version of ‘Somebody To Love’, played live with Queen after Freddie’s death. I’ve always adored this version, and I think this is close to one of the best covers out there (is it a cover even if the rest of Queen were involved?) I’ve never actually seen the footage though, so I was stoked to happen upon it tonight. The jacket! The hair! The gold hoop earring! Magic.
