Freddie Mercury, The Book

In nearly retracing Odysseus’ Odyssey today, I had time to eyeball the first seven chapters Freddie Mercury by Lesley-Ann Jones.

As if it was possible, I like Fred a bit more after learning this about him: despite the insistence on behalf of many family and friends that his time and efforts would be better spent on more conventional pursuits, his vision of his life’s pursuit remained utterly myopic. In the face of the challenges, setbacks and criticism he would endure from even his own band-mates, his resolve remained incorruptible. His vision was his truth, and hence it would become true.
