Today would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday. Many remember him from Bohemian Rhapsody or maybe even the Flash Gordon theme (ahhahhhhh!). His popularity often excluded him from the "classically sound" musicians, a mistake the he took with as much grace as possible. A talented singer, he was really one of the best composers of our time. He took risks and accomplished the true mark of success - his music transcended genre.
