A to Z Mondays ~ The Letter Q

Don't you think Freddie looked way cuter with the mustache?? Queen (band) (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Queen were an English rock band. Formed in London in 1970 following the demise of the band Smile, Queen consisted of vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, bassist John Deacon and drummer Roger Taylor. The band became popular with audiences via their hit songs, live performances, originality and showmanship.[2] Their 1985 Live Aid performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time in an industry poll.[3] Queen enjoyed success in the UK in the early 1970s with the albums Queen and Queen II, but it was with the release of Sheer Heart Attack in 1974 and A Night at the Opera the following year that the band gained international success. They have released fifteen studio albums, five live albums and numerous compilation albums. Since Mercury's death and Deacon's retirement, May and Taylor have performed infrequently together at special events and programmes as members of other ensembles. Between 2004 to 2009 the duo collaborated with Paul Rodgers, under the moniker Queen + Paul Rodgers. Okay, I must admit We Will Rock You was one of my faves when I was a youngster.

Happy Monday. Go see Jen. love,Cassie

As a musician, I LOVED Brian May's guitar work. I was listening to Queen in the Navy, when friends told me they were a "fag" band. I said, "Who cares, if the can rock like that?"

Orientation aside, I always respected their musical ability - and still do.

Interesting post, Cousin Cassie! I will always associate the Bohemian Rhapsody with high school, as it was released in my sophomore year, and blew everyone away with its blending of operatic nuances and hard rock. ~John

They made fantastic music, didn't they? Great choice for "Q" week, Cassie. I'm behind at commenting, as usual. HA! Hugs to you! :D
