💥Queen Pre-Live Aid Interview (Part 1)💥 . Brian: It was actually at the BPI awards we went to collect an award and Geldof was at a few tables away and came up and said how about doing this thing?'l he said we're gonna have this and this and this and we said oh yeah I'm sure you know thinking that it was almost impossible to get together but we said yeah we'd be interested and then a bit later he rang up and said 'look Brian I have to have a commitment you know' so we talked about it a bit more...we were all very keen to do it. . Interviewer: Is that because you support the cause and want to do your bit or because it's such a unique rock event that you can't afford to miss out in a way? . Queen: Good question...both actually... . Freddie: To answer that honestly, it's a bit of both actually. Cause I think it is a very good cause and initially we would have liked to have taken part in the Band Aid single but I think we were in separate parts of the globe...also the fact that some of the biggest best-known groups around the world are taking part, why not us? So I think...it makes me personally proud to be part if it actually. . 🎥 From Listener Channel on YouTube with my own edits . 👉P.S.1. I'm gonna post this whole epic interview bit by bit in the days to come... . 👉P.S.2. For once it's not Freddie who's showing some skin...it's our own Dr May 😄 . #FreddieMercury #BrianMay #RogerTaylor #JohnDeacon #LiveAid

#FreddieMercury #FarrokhBulsara #Queen #BrianMay #RogerTaylor #JohnDeacon while are Recording #OneVision Song and Video in the #1985 ___ "One Vision" is a Song written and recorded by Queen, first released as a single in November 1985 and then included on their 1986 album #AKindofMagic. It was originally Conceived by Roger Taylor. . The song has been speculated to be inspired by either the band's "show-stopping" performance at #LiveAid on the 13rd of July 1985, or by the Life and Exploits of #MartinLutherKing, with the lyrics recounting a man Battling and overcoming the Odds. In the 2011 BBC Documentary, #Queen: #DaysofOurLives, #Taylor stated his lyrics were "sort of half nicked off Martin Luther King's famous Speech." The Song's Music Video featured a "Morphing" effect of the band's Famous pose in 1975's "#BohemianRhapsody" video to a 1985 version of the same pose. The song was included in all Queen's live concert performances of #TheMagicTour, as the First Song of each Concert. They claimed they chose "One Vision" as the introduction song because its intro made a Perfect Concert Introduction. (Wikipedia.com)

Here at TheHits, G stands for the late great @georgemofficial. With a career spanning 4 decades, George Michael was not only an incredibly successful solo artist, but half of one of the most outspoken duos the world has ever seen - Wham! . . . Beginning in 1981, Wham! immediately took the charts by storm. For the duration of their 5 year run together, they accumulated a string of number 1 singles and albums, including the timeless hits “Careless Whisper”, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go)” and “Freedom”. As well as continued chart success, Wham! were the first Western pop group to tour China in 1985, before appearing together at Live Aid later the same year. The duo went their separate ways in 1986, but that did not spell the end for George Michael. . . . Throughout his solo career, Michael combined musical success with a degree of controversy, advocating openness about sexuality from his very first single “I Want Your Sex”, taken from the album “Faith”. Michael went on to release a further 4 studio albums featuring numerous hits, including his collaborations with artists such as Aretha Franklin “I Knew You Were Waiting” and Elton John “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me”. . . . Michael lived as an openly gay man since the 90s, freely discussing how he came the realisation of his sexuality. Viewed as an inspiration to many in the LGBT community, Michael’s music and lifestyle have been revered and admired by many fans from all walks of life. The legacy left behind by this giant of the music industry is one to truly be treasured. . . . #thehitsmusicblog #georgemichael #wham #faith #lgbtpride #rocknroll #pop #liveaid

Today , January 17th 2008 , #Que#Queen received Gold & Platinum awards for “Queen Rock Montreal” and “Live Aid” in US . 👑 When you listen to Queen, the music is theatrical, when you watch Queen perform, it is beyond theatrical; it is flamboyant, outrageous, and most of all, entertaining. They not only had a knack for writing hit songs, they had the ability to perform them well on stage. It is Freddie Mercury that really provides the flamboyance. He reportedly had a recorded four octave vocal range, and his prancing around on stage in various stages of undress while encouraging the audience to participate in the show is a testament to the great showman that he was. (✒ blogcritics.com -QueenRockMontreal) . . Legendary lead singer and frontman Freddie Mercury took to the stage and set it aflame. He passionately pounded the keys of the piano to the tune of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and marched the length of the stage, equipped with his sawed-off mic stand as the band played “Radio Gaga”. The twenty-minute set left the audience spellbound. The band and the crowd were united as they were consumed by raw emotion. Queen walked off of that stage as Champions, outshining every other big name on the line-up list. (✒ festivalsherpa.com -LiveAid ) . . . Freddie's voice in "Somebody to love" live performance in Montreal '81 is so very perfect in different levels.Especially by the end of this footage I'm sharing , I love his growls & how his voice tone changes immediately after it into a very warm & passionate one. Nobody but him could pass from one note or register as effortlessly & emotionally as Freddie did.That voice has the most calming effect on me, it feels literally like the warmest,tightest hug i ever got❤ . Good night all with this great moment from "Queen Rock Montreal" 🌛 . 🎥 AgoraVoxFrance/youtube . #FreddieMercury #FarrokhBulsara #legend #Queenband #frontman #JohnDeacon #RogerTaylor #BrianMay #Queen #80s #somebodytolove #QueenRockMontreal #LiveAid

Sabías que en los conciertos a beneficencia de países de África, Live Aid (1985) Se realizaron 2 conciertos simultáneamente, Uno en Londres (Inglaterra), y otro en Filadelfia (Estados Unidos). ¡¡@officialphilcollins fue el único que pudo estar en ambos conciertos el mismo día!! La gran hazaña se realizo en un avión Concorde. Y otro punto importante a destacar, es que NO solo interpreto "Against All Odds" e "In The Air Tonight" En ambos conciertos, si no que también colaboro con varios artistas en ambos lados del mundo. #philcollins #philcollins2018 #genesis #liveaid #invisibletouch #intheairtonight #anotherdayinparadise #2018

Happy 49th birthday to "the nicest guy in rock" Dave Grohl ❤🎉 . "Every band should study Queen at Live Aid. If you really feel like that barrier is gone, you become Freddie Mercury. I consider him the greatest frontman of all time. Like, it's funny? you'd imagine that Freddie was more than human, but...you know how he controlled Wembley Stadium at Live Aid in 1985? He stood up there and did his vocal warm ups with the audience. Something that intimate, where they realize, 'Oh yeah, he's just a f***ing dude." -Dave Grohl . #FreddieMercury #DaveGrohl #FooFighters #Nirvana #LiveAid Repost from @freddiemercuryclub
