Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury!
 
Today would have been Freddie Mercury's 66th birthday. Let's spin some Queen in his memory.

Happy birthday. Freddie was a true genius.


How do you guys rank Queen's best albums?

How do you guys rank them next to The Beatles and Led Zeppelin?

I'll get to mine when I get a moment at work.

Happy birthday to one of the most genius musicians of all time. You'll always be missed.

Edit: I prefer Queen to both The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, but I haven't ranked their albums.

I rank them as the greatest classic rock group, period. Sure you had Beatles and their influence, Zeppelin and their impressive instrumentation, but Queen brought it all together. Musicality, theatrics, technicality, harmonies like never before, the works. To me, that was unmatched.

The greatest songwriter of all time.

A true talent that can't ever be mimicked or topped.

Happy birthday, wish you were still here. If there was one band I could see live it would be Queen.

I think they are too different to rank against each other. The Beatles were the most influential, Led was better instrumentally, and Queen had the most originality. But as far as my favorite records by them go, I would have to say my favorites are Revolver, IV, and A Night at the Opera.

Honestly, I cannot stand News of the World. After hearing all of the songs to death at sporting events and pop-culture throughout my whole life, I'm just tired of it.

Happy birthday brother
