Fredie Mercury impersonator - tricky lighting and only had a flash which was bounced of wall.

Kill the Queen Kill the Queen (Shawn of the Dead) - that's a very detailed shot and Freddy should be pleased.

Looks somewhat like him, though this guy seems a bit prettier to me actually, but can he sing like Freddie, that's the real question?

The good old days! Freddy Mercury could sing!! Not sure about the look a like but the photo is well done considering the lighting you had to work with. JIM

Great shot! (a little too processed for my taste, but nonetheless)

The music and lighting equipment in the background really give your photo a sense of place, really fantastic.

Hearing the news of the death of Freddie Mercury on the radio was one of the saddest days of my "music" life.

Thanks for the feedback.
if anyone is interested in how his voice compares to the real Freddies here's a link to a youtube vid.

At least he can sing. Wonder how he made out on the contest? JIM

Pretty good. Doesn't pack as much emotion in his voice as Freddie did, though. Would love to hear him do more.

Not even close, IMHO, sorry. I've seen a few Freddy impersonators, most of which just didn't capture Mercury well. This guy, nah...

Nice shot Falcons. I like the lighting and treatment. (thanks for the link - the guy was not too shabby)

The Freddie Mercury I remember looked a wee bit more like this.....



But man could Freddie sing - taken from us much too soon.
