MY TRIBUTE TO YOU

freddie-mercury 46-91

The most flamboyant front man in rock had a unique charisma. On stage he could hold an audience in the plam of his hand with the sheer force of his personality. He could move you to laughter or to tears, soothe you, or drive you into frenzy. He had so much energy it seemed he had a special line into the national grid!

But it’s the memories that are the saddest things. Memories that the world shares. Of a brilliant showman, a blur of energy singing his heart out, pouting and pirouetting all over the stage, weaving his way round the banks of amps, half rock legend, half clown prince. Memories of the band, tight and powerful behind him, the lights flashing, the almost touchable excitement of the fans, the majesty of the music rolling over the stadium.

A Queen concert was always an event that transcendent barriers of language or politics, race or religion, because the true genius of the band lay in the fact that they appealed to everybody. Old and young, rich and poor. Queen ruled supreme from Tokio to Toronto, from Rio to Rotterdam.

Memories of his wit and love of life. ” The bigger the better – in everything ! ” was always his motto.

And he is gone … The news has been shattering. We all knew Freddie had been ill, the gutter press had been full of innuendos about the nature of his illness for months, but he had always seemed so indestructible. It was hard to believe, even harder to accept. A blanket of sorrow has descended over us all. Only the greatest talents when they fall victim to a meaningless fate inspire this sort of grief. Elvis, Jimmi Hendrix, John Lennon, and now Freddie. His friends and admirers in the music business, and they were countless, were in despair.

And then there were the loyal fans tearfully laying their flowers at the gate of his Notting Hill mansion. Perhaps they were the saddest sight of all, ordinary people like you and me, who loved Freddie for the pleasure and joy he had brought into there lives.

Freddie’s death is a desperate tragedy, leaving us all the poorer. Without his vibrant personality and charm, his zest for life, his kindness and his generosity, the world will be a sadder and a duller place. We will never see his like again!

And sadly if we must say goodbye to Freddie it is also a farewell to Queen. The other members of the band will continue with their own projects as they have always done, but Queen is no more. How could it be without Freddie?

So there only remains one thing more to say.

We will always miss you and we will never forget you, Freddie! 

Thank you, for everything!

May exist only light on your way!

and just remember

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one things still true
When I look, and I find …
… I still love you!
 

I still love you, Freddie

    Queen is a masterpiece on it’s own. And the music they made was beyond masterpiece. If anyone can name me one artist today that makes music as epic as this he’s got my eternal respect. But I know that can’t happen 😛
