Thread Name: Freddie Mercury's 65th....
Subject: RE: Freddie Mercury's 65th....
I had always admired the craft rather than the substance of Queen's work. They were all good songwriters and they all wrote very polished pop songs. Freddie Mercury had always struck me as a bit of a pompous prat. One day I heard an interview with him. He was being asked about songs he had written and the interviewer mentioned, "We Are The Champions". "Oh - the most arrogant and egotistical song I have ever written," replied Freddie. It was impossible to actually dislike him after that!
