The Freddie Of My Youth
By Walter Price
Today The GTC would like to remember Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) on what would have been his 67th birthday.
But, I would like to publicly acknowledge something else you and your band were so very perfect for, the roller discos of the 70s and 80s.
So let me thank you for your part in creating many of the songs that shaped the soundtrack of my youth. Especially the tracks that rocked my Friday and Saturday nights in Austin and Odessa, TX.
Best Queen Songs To Roller-Boogie To: “Another One Bites The Dust“, “Under Pressure”, “Somebody To Love“, “Radio Ga Ga” and “I Want To Break Free”
Now, some words from your very own mouth…
“A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It’s a theatrical event.” – Freddie Mercury
