Aaron Buchanan celebrates Mercury’s birthday
September 5th marks what would have been the 70th birthday of the late, great Freddie Mercury. Not only that, but this year, 2016, also marks the 30th anniversary of the Wembley 86 gig that steals the spotlight for the most memorable Wembley show of all time.
“Today marks 70 years of the late, great Freddie Mercury. To celebrate his life we set time aside to deliver a live rendition of possibly one of Freddie’s most beautiful composures, “Love Of My Life”. This year is also the 30th anniversary of the Queen Live At Wembley gig in 1986 (of which this song is featured) and will be remembered as one of the greatest, if not, the greatest Wembley show of all time. I’m a huge Freddie fan, Queen’s music was the key thing that made me want to be a part of a band and having never had a chance to pay homage to the man that inspired not only my self, but generations, now felt like the right time. I hope this lives up to expectation. Here’s to Freddie Mercury, long live his legend.”
