What is, I can’t believe I missed this Final Jeopardy clue?
November 10th, 2021 under Freddie Mercury, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

I miss a lot of Jeopardy clues, but there are a few that I should always be able to get. For example, yesterday’s Final Jeopardy. Ken Jennings asked the contestants, “In 1976 ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was replaced at No. 1 on the U.K. Charts by this Europop song whose title is heard in Queen’s lyrics.”

Queen’s Brian May is no longer a fat bottomed boy

Since we are stuck at home, we are trying to find new ways to keep ourselves occupied. Brian May, the guitarist from Queen, decided to do some gardening, and it has become a literal pain in the ass for him.

May explained what happened, “I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself. Turns out I did a thorough job.”

Then he added, “…this is a couple of days ago – and I won’t be able to walk for a while … or sleep, without a lot of assistance, because the pain is relentless. So, folks … I need to go dark for a while, getting some complete rest, at home. Please, please don’t send me sympathy – I just need some healing silence for a while. I’ll be back – but I need the complete break. OK? Thanks.”

I know I can’t be the only one who is wondering how he did that. Then again, I don’t garden, so can you gardeners tell me what went wrong and why he won’t be saying, “I want to ride my bicycle” anytime soon.


Rami Malek did not sing in Bohemian Rhapsody
October 30th, 2018 under Freddie Mercury. [ Comments: none ]

Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for singing like June Carter in Walk the Line. Val Kilmer wowed audiences when he sounded like just like Jim Morrison in The Doors. You would swear that Peter Dobson is The King of Rock’n’Roll anytime he plays Elvis Presley. Is Rami Malek up there with the likes of them?

According to NME, Malek lip synched to Canadian rocker Mark Martel’s vocals in Boheamian Rhapsody. Martel is known for sounding like the legendary Freddie Mercury.

Although NME adds that Malek’s vocals are mixed in with Martel’s. How much, who knows?

What we also know is that neither one of them will be heard on the movie’s soundtrack. Instead you will be hearing the real Queen songs on it. My theory, Queen wants to make as much money as they can off of this movie. Thus, they were insistent that their tunes be on the album.

Back to Martel, while he is not a Mercury clone. He is pretty close. Listen to his version of the title song. Chills!


Eric McCormack does a spot on Freddie Mercury!

Yesterday on Will & Grace, we got a quick glimpse of Eric McCormack doing a Freddie Mercury impression. After the episode ended, he posted a behind-the-scenes video of him performing Queen’s We Are the Champions for the audience.

Forget Rami Maleck, McCormack should have played the singing legend in Bohemian Rhapsody. I could totally see Mercury’s moves through the actor. Did you see it too?


What is, how well do you know Queen?
September 25th, 2018 under Freddie Mercury, Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Today, on Jeopardy they wanted to see how well the contestants know the Freddie Mercury and Queen. Two out of three of them do not the band as well as Vincent. Which is sad because they were easy questions. But who cares because it is fun they were represented!
