Happy Birthday!

 Happy Birthday to me...and Freddie!

I was just lamenting to my daughter that I couldn't think of anyone noteworthy born on this day when I saw the Google Doodle of Freddie Mercury. He would have been 65 today.

If you go here, you can see his full 1986 Wembley concert, courtesy of the official Queen website.
Of course, if you don't have an hour and a half, just watch the video below. Note that they were not actually performing on stage together. Someone did a fantastic job remixing and splicing films to make this great little video. Enjoy!!

It's funny but years ago I looked up people born on my birthday too. I share it with Mick Jagger, Sandra Bullock and a bunch more.

Queen was a great group and I really like Freddie Mercury. Anyway, Happy Birthday to you, have a great day.
