    Ok I Love Queen Massive fan so in my recommended box today I got a vocals only version of Freddie doing Bohemian Rhapsody and JESUS CHRIST it was like the angels themselves we're singing, like you can fully hear the power in his voice without the other instruments overshadowing it, it can cut through steel. How I would've loved to meet him in person heres the video:

    He had no training whatsoever.

    Which is why Freddie is one of my two personal heroes.

    That and the fact that in my opinion he is the embodiment of uniqueness.

    That was Queen's niche. The combination of rock and softer stuff like piano. You will find that May wrote Queen's more edgy songs, with Freddie composing the more theatrical numbers. You will probably prefer Queen's earlier stuff, like liar etc.
