Bohemian Rhapsody was the 1st song I cared to learn the lyrics to. Max here…hope all is well in your rockin’ world.
Here at 96.1 KSTR, we’re busting out the catsuits and getting ready for the premiere of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the biopic of Queen and Freddie Mercury. We rented out a whole theater for it…and I’m pretty excited. Not because I’ve always wanted to have a movie theater to myself (believe me, I have…) but because this is one of those flicks that really captures your attention because of who it’s about. Music is pretty generational, with Baby Boomers, Gen Xer’s, and the like all having their own personal tastes, heck, even Millennials haven’t ruined music yet. Every so often though, you get a band that blurs those temporal lines to create timelessness in music. Queen did that. Freddie Mercury was a big part of it.
Look, I’m not saying Queen is everybody’s favorite band, but if it’s a Queen song that drunk dudes in the back of police cruisers break into at a moment’s notice, well…you may be on to something.
That’s a different kind of Carpool Karaoke. It shows you though, that Queen’s music spans many people’s lives, and has had quite an impact on those lives as well.
If you were there for the 1st time it (Bohemian Rhapsody…the song) was played on radio, then I’m sure jealous. Nice to make up for time missed though by checking out the movie about the men and the music they made. Love to have you join me at the show. 961kstr.com to check it out, get registered, and what not.
