Welcome to the bestowing of the coveted “I won the Music Trivia Question for the Day, I tried to make a speech, to shut me up they gave me this award” Award.
The question was:
Who’s real name was Frederick Bulsara?
Freddie was born in 1946 as Farrokh (Frederick) Bulsara. He was born in Zanzibar and grew up there and in India until his teens, when he moved to the UK. The rest is history.
Here is vintage Queen from 1973, a live version of “Keep Yourself Alive” taken from their first album.
Keep Yourself Alive
I say bestowing as the answer was given in about 18 seconds to El Guapo
Perchance this was too easy of a question, or perhaps El Guapo is a musical genius. This of course means that A Gripping Life had a short but, interesting reign as the goddess of music trivia. Congratulations El G, you have a chance to consolidate your kingdom on Wednesday.
