THE BRIT CROWD – Under Pressure
QUEEN are one of the greatest bands of all time, so I’m not surprised actor RAMI MALEK feels pressure playing the late frontman FREDDIE MERCURY in the upcoming biopic.
But the Mr Robot star has secretly been getting tips on playing the music icon from the people who knew him best, his bandmates BRIAN MAY and ROGER TAYLOR.
Rami, as Freddie, attended both of the group’s shows at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday, before sneaking backstage to hang out with the pair.
Asked what he thought of the concerts, in which ADAM LAMBERT very successfully stepped into Freddie’s job, he said they were “f***ing rad.”
