Queen To Never Perform With Freddie Mercury Hologram
While Tupac's Coachella hologram appearance may have been impressive, don't expect to see Freddie Mercury on stage with Queen in the near future, as bandmate Roger Taylor has said it will never happen. Speaking during rehearsals for Queen Extravaganza - a tribute tour with a line-up hand picked by Taylor and bandmate Brian May - Taylor says he would have no problem with someone else creating a Freddie Mercury hologram, but it wouldn't happen on his stage. "I don't want to sit up here with a hologram of my dear friend," said Taylor in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. "Were somebody to use a hologram of Freddie, I don't think I would have an objection. But I don't want to. It just didn't sit too well with me." Taylor also added that he believes Freddie Mercury would wholeheartedly support not only the tribute tour - but the band's current frontman, Adam Lambert. "When Freddie died, we were in shock," said the drummer. "And it didn't go away for five years. We would have probably remained together. We were very tight and very close. We never saw the need to break up. I think he'd love (these shows). I think he would have been really flattered. He would have loved the idea of keeping our musical flag flying. Brian and I always sort of imagine he's in the room." Thanks for the report to Gigwise.com.
