First off,  Celine Dion isn’t on the list.  Seriously? Like her or not, you can’t deny her talent.

And Christina Aguleria didn’t make the Top 25? Huh?

Freddie Mercury is only at #14?

Where’s Steve Perry at?


Maybe I can be on the list then???

My personal pick for #1 would be Freddie Mercury, followed by Whitney Houston and then Christina Aguleria.

Who would be your top pick?

And what are the “Rolling Stone” staffers smoking?

Queen “Face It Alone”

I’ve been waiting for this for awhile… and it’s here!

Brian May (iconic guitarist of Queen for those not well-informed on such matters) announced earlier this year that Queen would be putting out a new album with the late Freddie Mercury’s vocals.  Engineers spliced some stuff from recording sessions in the late 80’s to make it happen, and you know what? It’s pretty flipping spectcular.

Freddies vocals still give me the chills, and Brian May’s guitar solo is on fire, as per usual.

Can you totally see this song on a movie soundtrack? Like a Bond movie or something. That’s the vibe I’m getting.

Any more recordings that can be spliced together, guys? I may need more of this.
