I have been on a big surge of listening to Queen again lately (thanks to Buzzardbilly's getting in touch with your inner Freddie Mercury blogs), and I found a video of a Freddie impersonator. At times this guy songs just like Freddie. His range isn't as good, and he certainly isn't as good looking, but still it's craziness.
For anyone who doesn't know me, Freddie Mercury was my first love and obsession (probably why I've always had relationship problems; you just don't pair love and obsession in a healthy one...). :)
Here are two videos, one of Queen singing Somebody to Love live, then Gary Mullen and the Works singing it live. It's really funny to listen to this guy talk, because he has a really think accent that you wouldn't guess by listening to him sing.
Of course, keep in mind that Freddie is doing his slightly different version of the song as he does when live, and Gary is doing one of Freddie's live audience improv/imitation pieces at the beginning.
