Great documentary about the greatest rock n' roll showman ever
1 August 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

If you ask my opinion, Freddie Mercury was an incredible and downright perfect singer and the greatest rock n' roll showman ever and the magnificent Queen was definitely the best rock band there was and will be. Mercury's death only at the age of 45 was one of the biggest losses world of music has faced. Queen's fascinating music was a phenomenal mixture of opera and hard rock and Freddie's sensational voice, charisma and style was something out of this world.

"Freddie Mercury, The Untold story" lets Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon, Elton John, Robert Plant, Mick Jagger and many others talk about Freddie. This is also the first time when Mercury's friends and relatives gets a chance to speak too. We hear what Freddie's old mother has to say about his late son as well as his sister and last lover's thoughts. "Freddie Mercury, The Untold story" is an excellent, stylish, well-made and highly interesting one hour long documentary about the king as well as the queen of rock and everyone who loves Freddie should watch it.
