Freddie Mercury (Queen) Statue, Montreux, Switzerland
Hi Folks! The Freddie Mercury Memorial Statue lies on the Montreux shore of Lake Geneva. It is a very powerful and symbolic statue and represents the close relationship between the Queen Band Members and the people of the place.
My other half and I have been Queen fans since university days in the early 1980s and were privileged to have front of stage positions at a Queen concert at Ingleston Showground near Edinburgh in the 1985. The professionalism and dynamic performance just left us in awe! Wonderful showmen, all of them! It was so sad when Freddie’s life was cut short by Aids and it was a ‘bucket list’ wish to see the statue and visit the Queen Museum in Montreux. That’s one item ticked off!
Thanks for coming along to my blog and hope you will join me again!
