The late Queen singer Freddie Mercury would have turned 73 today (September 5th). He was always “doing his thing.”.  On the song “We Are the Champions” from the album “News of the World” in 1977.  Queen guitarist Brian May says only one person could have written “We Are the Champions.”

“This is Freddie doing his thing. I remember the first time I heard it with all the lyrics I said — I don’t know if I actually said it, but I thought, ‘Fred…, can you really get away with this?’ It seemed like very over the top to me. But it was very Freddie, you know. I mean, that’s why the guy was so great, ‘cause he went places where people wouldn’t normally dare to go.”
