🎬 Queen - A Kind Of Magic
Live @ Budapest, Hungary, 1986.
▶️ "You must have a gimmick".
▪️ Ken Testi, old friend:.
- 'This was 1969. Before joining his first band, Freddie's opening gambit was, ‘I’m a singer but I haven’t got a band’. Looking back, it was a brilliant strategy. Freddie was shy offstage, but he knew how to front a show. It was his way of expressing that side of his personality. Everything he did on stage later in Queen, he was doing it with his previous band at his first gig: marching from one end of the stage to another, from left to right and back again. Stomping about. At first, he had his back to the audience for half of the first number, but by the end of the first song, the shyness was gone, something clicked and he was performing so greatly. He brought dynamics, freshness and presentation to a band that had been completely lacking previously. In November, the band played at a girls’ school dance in Widnes. Freddie launched into his usual routine only for the base of his microphone stand to fall off. Undeterred, he sung the rest of the gig without it like a pro. He told me: 'It’s my gimmick, dear. You must always have a gimmick!''.
▶️ Some (very few) people are born with star, and by all the testimonies, it's obvious Freddie had an inner galaxy. Professionalism and pure talent coming through his skin! Enjoy this fab performance with Freddie at his best, playing around with his mic and giving a masterclass in 'How to front a show' 😎.
L'amore fa perdere il lume
È come l'inferno ma piovono piume
Io sono il tipo che sta sulle sue
Questa coperta non basta per due
Può fare freddo anche il 15 agosto
E tu sei dall'altra parte del mondo
So che è scontato guardare le stelle
Vivo un secondo che dura per sempre

There's something about the ability of one's work to live on past the artist, and sadly it's true but all too soon with Jay Reatard. His high-energy garage rock is a gift to fans of the genre and I'm certain it will continue to live on through his fans. 🎵SPOTIFY PLAYLIST IN BIO🎵

Se nunca mais vocês não tiverem notícias sobre mim, saiba que foi resgate.

“Musik rock vs dangdut damai di ujung tahun.” Perseteruan rock vs dangdut memanas hingga bentrok fisik antar para pendukungnya. Rhoma irama (soneta) yg ketika itu menjadi bintang dari apa yg dinamakan orkes melayu berseteru dengan Ahmad Albar dari God Bless(rock). Ketika itu musik orkes melayu dan rock sedang amat digandrungi kaum muda pada zamannya sehingga menimbulkan bentrok fisik antar keduanya. Melihat kondisi ini Yapto Soerjosoemarno berniat mendamaikan kedua belah pihak,yg terwujud pada tanggal 31 Desember 1977 di Istora Senayan Jakarta. Sejak saat itu rock dan dangdut (orkes melayu) rukun dan tidak ada pernah kontak fisik lagi smpai saat ini.
Forgiving who you are
For what you stand to gain
Just know that if you hide
It doesn’t go away
When you get out of bed
Don’t end up stranded
Horrified with each stone
On the stage
My little dark age 🏹🎭
