I have seen so many entertainment documentary and this one is THE BEST I HAVE SEEN SO FAR!!
Last night, one of the local TV Stations (NET – the only TV Channel in Indonesia that dares to be different) shared the IHeart Music Festival 2013. There were sooo many great bands there but the best and most waited (for me) was Queen. Of course we all know that Queen is now only Brian May and Roger Taylor and I also know that Adam Lambert is singing for them now. Not really his fan but still it’s THE LEGENDARY QUEEN! To my delight surprise, Nate Rues of FUN also sang with Queen…and (sorry for Lambert fans) I honestly think May and Taylor should ditch Lambert and take Nate touring with them. He is brilliant and so alive!! I am not saying he is better than Freddie…NO ONE can fill in his legendary shoes…but Nate is much much much better than Lambert.
I like it so much…I looked it up in youtube to download it
That video led to one video to another… I started watching Freddie’s Mercury tribute which I had watched ages ago (all the best memory of great music era came rushing back to my mind) and then I saw these words:
Queen – Days Of Our Lives BBC 2011
I never noticed it before…so I clicked the link. I regret being so late to see that documentary…it was a beautiful and sad documentary.
“There has been a rumours about certain band called Queen. The rumour is that we’re going to split up. What do you think?
Forget that rumour, we are going to stay till we’re fucking die, I am sure.”
That’s how the documentary starts! A quote from the famous LIVE at Wembley 1986. An amazing 2 day sold out concerts…5 years later, the legend passed away.
I knew Queen after Freddie passed away…My father introduced me to The Beatles, my brother introduced me to Metallica and Guns n Roses…I have to introduced myself to Queen. I was a bit late to know the wonderful music of Queen but I love them and their music is always in my playlist.
Watching Days of Our Lives makes me love them more and it tells me how little I know about them. Their struggle and their friendship are such a great inspiration. Success never comes in an easy way and Legends are made through hardship.
The most beautiful and saddest moment of this documentary is in the last 15 minutes where Freddie was known to be HIV positive. He wanted to keep making music despite his growing weakness…AIDS slowly took away his health but it didn’t take away his will to sing. It was so beautiful knowing he was such a great person and it was also beautiful knowing that his friends, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon stayed with him till the end…they didn’t leave him all alone in his pain. Such a beautiful friendship is so hard to find. But it is also the saddest moment because it highlights his last days…I literally couldn’t stop my tears.
Freddie has one of the most beautiful voices on earth and Queen has so many great timeless songs. NO other band can be like Queen. I wish I can see them live.
