Little Legend

babyfreddie-0This beaming little boy had no idea that he would one day connect with so many. No idea of the rock-and-roll lifestyle that lie ahead – and with all that it entailed  – en route to recognition as the supreme showman.

No idea that he’d become Freddie Mercury.

As we reach twenty-five years without Freddie, it seems to me that the best way to counter any sadness is to just watch him perform. What a legacy this little boy would leave.

    Beautiful, drawing and yes, Freddie is still missed but watching and going back in time helps ❤

      Thank you Geke – yes indeed, “Goin’ Back” is to be relished where Freddie’s magic is concerned!

    Remember them like they were yesterday…both Live Aid and his passing, I mean…a spectrum of emotions. What a talent…what a loss. B

      I’d love to hop into the DeLorean and go to the Live Aid gig, or indeed any of Freddie’s Wembley triumphs. What incredible shows they are. Yes, a tremendous loss, but what a legacy left behind!

      Absolutely. The twinkle in the eye is there, too!

      Indeed! Cheers, Phil – I agree, it’s definitely poignant, but I found it quite uplifting to draw. I found I was looking at Freddie from the very beginning and thinking of all that he’d go on to do, rather than looking back and wondering what might have been. It did me a lot of good, I think!
