If anyone has any doubt that Freddie Mercury’s vocals were second-to-none, here is the decider.
A newly-shared version of ‘We Are The Champions’ features Mercury’s isolated vocals from the track.
The singer certainly shows off his four-octave vocal range.
Mercury passed away at his London home on 24 November 1991, aged 45.
He had been diagnosed HIV-positive several years earlier, and died of bronchial pneumonia, brought on by AIDS.
Queen’s lead singer is remembered for his captivating live performances, searing vocals and enduring classics such as ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Killer Queen’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
In 1987, Mercury told journalist David Wigg that he had no fears of becoming a lonely, rich 70-year-old.
“I’ve lived a full life and if I’m dead tomorrow, I don’t give a damn. I really have done it all”, he said.
