BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY MOVIE VERSUS REAL LIFEDate: 2019-02-28
Bohemian Rhapsody was released on November 3, 2018, and the fascinating story behind one of the most influential groups ever continues to be unbelievably popular.
However, some things that are shown in the movie kinda differ from the truth.
The director of Live Aid was present during filming and was pleasantly surprised by how precise the reconstruction of the stage was. Some people pointed out that the creators added some very visible Pepsi product placement in the movie during the Live Aid scene, this was in fact not a product placement. If you watch the original performance, you'll see these glasses on Mercury's piano too.
The pause in Queen's work didn't last for more than a year. Plus, in February 1984 they released a new album called The Works.
Several years ago, Marc Martel sent his cover versions of Queen songs to guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. They were amazed by the similarities between Marc's voice and Freddie’s and Marc ended up being involved in the behind-the-scenes for the movie.
