Freddie Mercury

This guy was a genius. 
I had never seen this picture of him before, so I decided to post it up. 
It's Friday, welcome to the weekend. The first time I heard Freddie sing, it was a Friday night in Newtown, Pennsylvania. Things were pretty quiet. I was sitting in my car, waiting for a friend to come down from their apartment, so we could go to some other town that was more "happening".  Oh, the quiet, the complete and utter "deadness" of it all. Then a miracle happened. Killer Queen came on the radio. A voice singing, so seductive, so alluring, I felt like I was the one who discovered him. I listened, looking up at the fire escape behind the red brick apartment building. My own private concert. Thank you Freddie.
