Man mimics Freddie Mercury in Live Aid on the roof with a broom

During quarentine to help contain the spread of the Covid-19, a Freddie Mercury fan went to his house roof to mimic the singer. He simulated the musician presentation with Queen during 1985’s Live Aid.


Standing on his roof and using a broom as a microphone, the unidentified man synchronized his lips with Freddie’s iconic “day-oh” sequence during the Queen show and entertained the neighbors.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
