I don’t think that I need to extol the talents of the late, great Freddie Mercury and the music of the band Queen because that could go on in paragraph after paragraph after paragraph. So many of their songs have become timeless classics and now the bands story, or more importantly Freddie’s story will be told in a brand-new 20th Century Fox Film called “Bohemian Rhapsody”. A short time ago, the first teaser trailer from the film was released. Let’s take a look at that. You can also enjoy some premise, casting and editorial thoughts down below.

Synopsis: Described as a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.

With that being said they do still serve a great purpose and amount to good presents for the younger set who are learning to appreciate such classic tunes by legendary artists. Such was the case that I found with the recently released Queen issue in the form of “Icon” which delivers eleven tunes from the bands truly massive repertoire. I’ll keep this one short and say that there does not appear to be a throwaway track on the issue.
