They were originally called Smile and their lead singer almost adopted the name Larry Lurex ! Luckily Freddie Mercury and the boys settled on Queen and kept their hold on the charts from the 70s onwards. We remember their contribution to 80s culture this week on The 80s Lunchbox by making one of the best fansites – Queenzone, our Website Of The Week. Find out more by tuning into The Cheese, weekdays from midday.
It’s hardly surprising that former Queen front man Freddie Mercury has a dedicated fan base. One such fan has put together a unique website called Mr Mercury which impressed us so much we made it our Website Of The Week this week on The 80s Lunchbox. Pay the site a visit and you’ll see what we mean. Listen out for your favourite 80s songs too on The 80s Lunchbox, weekdays from midday on The Cheese.
I’m sure Freddie would have loved this video! 🙂
