A bit of useless trivia for the night.

Did you know that Freddie Mercury had the highest range of vocal octaves of our lifetime? Few opera singers possess that. We really did lose a true treasure in him.

I think Yma Sumac and Don Van Vliet have him beat.
Not to denigrate Mr.Mercury's mastery of the form,but I think those two in particular could run vocal gymnastics around him.

[@398659,dubkebab] I had heard her, he sounds a bit like Wolfman Jack. I'm more the Harry Nillson type.

I didn't realize it was that high, but"Tonight, I'm gonna have myself a real good time.. I'm gonna fly, Hi, high!" Was pretty impressive.
