Episode Summary

Alfie Boe - Freddie Mercury Saved My Life
Singer Alfie Boe explores the extraordinary life and work of Freddie Mercury. He discusses Freddie's legacy as a performer and a musician with those who knew him best, including Queen guitarist Brian May, opera diva Montserrat Caballe, designer Zandra Rhodes, Sir Bob Geldof and other close friends and family. Freddie is one of Alfie's heroes and is a constant inspiration. He sets out to find out more about the man behind the music, explore the formative experiences which made him unique, and discover how he became one of the most recognisable front men ever. Alfie admits that his own journey from opera to exploring new musical forms has mirrored that of Freddie, who went from rock to opera as he used his genius to propel Queen from conventional rockers into one of the greatest bands in the world.moreless
