Nearly 70 Years Later, We Still Haven’t Seen a Vocalist as Dynamic as Freddie Mercury

Though he died nearly 25 years ago, Mercury left a void in the music scene that remains vacant.

Saturday would have been Mercury’s 69th birthday. As talented as Nally and the rest of rock’s boldest singers are, music has still yet to encounter a singer whose voice and presence measure up to the dynamism Mercury brought to every show. He rewrote the rules for what a rock performance could look and feel like, and every band focuses on vocals in their act owes him an incredible debt.
