Music Video Friday: Queen at Live Aid

Queen is one of my favorite bands, even as they continue greatly diminished. They last toured as the "real" Queen in 1986, a year before frontman Freddie Mercury was diagnosed with HIV. So it's easy to forget how powerful, how charismatic they were. It's easy to forget that Freddie Mercury was the greatest frontman to have ever lived. Here is their live performance at Live Aid on 13 July 1985 - the performance that stole the benefit concert and showed the world, again, why Queen was king.

Love Queen. I used to work at the Borders on 18th & L (just shy of three years when they announced the store was closing and I got the hell out) and I would burn Queen CDs to play on the in-store CD system.
