Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury
Price: £5.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone but will never be forgotten, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freddie Mercury (Kindle Edition)
Bought the paperback back in 2002 and still have it, read it on a flight to see the only Tribute to Freddie that being the statue in Montreux Switzerland, a journey so worth making, Phoebe's book is well worth reading as it is not a character assault on rock musics greatest star.

Peter Freestone was Freddie's personal Assistant so knew him well. Is tinged with sadness and stories that show the true Freddie Mercury, there have been too many books written that are not worth the paper they are printed on,

So much has been written about Freddie Mercury since his death in my humble opinion most are just to make the Author Money, The only other book i would reccommend as highly as this is Mercury and Me by Jim Hutton. I get so annoyed when someone writes negative books on people just to make money but this is not one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coops a legend, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a football fan and a supporter of no paticular team, i like to read up on some of the greats that have been part of the game, that are no longer with us.

Cannot say i remember much of Coops as a player only seen stuff on you tube,and what people have told me about him as a player,

This is a good book and insight into a footballing great it seems the saying the good die young is so appropiate when talking about Davie Cooper.

I buy biographies of players this is on par with the two books i own on Jinky another great player.

For those prviliged to have seen Coops play buy this good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Les Trihumphant, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Les Misérables [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
27 years ago i fell in love with a musical Les Miserables and had the original cast cd the complete symphonic recording cd of the show over the years, It took me 24 years to see the show in the west end and what a show it was, the songs were so moving and for a musical it had a story and characters you could identify with.

When i saw the movie was being made i was a little unsure at first as Russell Crowe singing did not appeal to me,but then i sat in he cinema on the day it was released in the UK and was the first to take my seat only 6 of us in the cinema which was unerving , but after i came out and bought a second ticket and saw the film again.

This is one musical movie everyone should own as it has a great story a very strong cast and some really emotional heart string moments. This is a msut for fans of musicals and the cast all performed well Hugh Jackman, Anne Hatahway , Russell Crowe and even the young Daniel Huttlestone as Gavroche were superb, the later reduced many grown men to tears when Russell Crowe places his medal on the dead body of Gavroche. Would recomend this very highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phantamastogical, 8 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love Never Dies aka Phantom of the Opera 2 is now out and having pre ordered it in october last year,i eagerly awaited the release of the latest offering from Andrew Lloyd Webber.

And since it arrived this morning i have not stopped listening each and every track is a gem and the music proves Andrew can still write the best musicals around.

Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom is vocally outstanding as is Sierra Boggess as Christine, the score and lyrics are equally as good as Phantom of the opera.

Also featured on the CD is Summer Strallen as Meg Giry and fellow reality tv show star Niamh Perry in a minor role. For musical lovers anywhere this is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have you heard Philip Sing?, 28 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Live at the Donmar (Audio CD)
having been a fan of Les Miserable for many years and in particular Philip Quasts Inspector Javert, i saw this CD in a theatre shop and bought it straight away.

As has been said before some of the songs are unknown to me but then having said that, This CD does not disappoint.

Each song is special in it's own way, I adored the dramatic comic vocals on the Kings New Clothes, one of the many highliights of this CD.

Do not expect Inspector Javert to leap out at you or even Juan Peron another of Philips many roles from the stage on CD, Instead expect a man who can sing a variety of song styles in such a way that he3 entertains.

A worthy purchase if you liked his Inspector Javert on the 10th Anniversary version of Les Mis, long may we have his talent on CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Phantom Disappoints, 28 Sept. 2009
Having seen Ramin playing the Phantom Recently i decided to buy Ramin's debut solo album. Whilst Ramin has a excellent voice the choice of songs is somewhat disappointing.

It is a pleasant enough album that show cases Ramins voice well enough, i was disappointed in the song selection.

Ramin is excellent as the Phantom and i eagerly await the concept album of Love Never Dies the sequel to Phantom i am reluctant to reccomend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Tribute, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How anyone can buy this DVD without reading the information before doing so must come under the heading of a fool and his money is easily parted.

I knew this DVD was the West End show and featured people performing as the Rat PAck, this is a great introduction to the music of the great Sinatra,Martin and Sammy Davis jnr. The show is a sell out where ever it goes and i suggest anyone that never got to see the Real Rat Pack live go see the show.

This DVD is a worthy addition to any collection
