John Deacon: “There is only one Freddie, and it is impossible to replace him.”
Brian May : “This man truly possessed the greatest voice in the history of rock. Journalists, culture experts and analysts have already made several hundred comments on this topic and nothing can be added here.”
Roger Taylor; “We constantly hear about what kind of a great showman Freddie was. And sometimes it infuriates me. No, he was not a showman, he was a great musician!”
Mike Myers: “He had theatricality, he was larger than life, new, fresh, cool. This is a god that walks as man.”
John Taylor: "There’s not a single day where I don’t miss Freddie Mercury."
Axl Rose: "If I didn’t have Freddie Mercury’s lyrics to hold on to as a kid, I don’t know where I would be. It taught me about all forms of music. It would open my mind. I never really had a bigger teacher in my whole life."
Lady Gaga: "Freddie was unique, one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music. He was not only a singer but also a fantastic performer, a man of the theatre and someone who constantly transformed himself. In short: a genius."
Dave Grohl: "I consider him the greatest frontman of all time. Like, it’s funny? you’d imagine that Freddie was more than human, but … You know how he controlled Wembley Stadium at Live Aid in 1985? He stood up there and did his vocal warm ups with the audience. Something that intimate, where they realize, ‘Oh yeah, he’s just a f***ing dude."
David Bowie: "Of all the more theatrical rock performers, Freddie took it further than the rest… he took it over the edge. And of course, I always admired a man who wears tights. I only saw him in concert once and as they say, he was definitely a man who could hold an audience in the palm of his hand."
Annie Lennox: “For me, Freddy is the brightest representative of the era of rock, when people were not afraid to live life to the full. This would hardly ever be repeated. ”
