Queen to continue elaborate gravedigging of Freddie Mercury with hologram japes

POOR old Queen. They’ve been at a loss since Freddie Mercury – the only one in the group with a modicum of talent or charisma – went and selfishly died, leaving the group to team up with berks like Ben Elton and Dappy from N-Dubz.

Since Freddie shrugged off his mortal coil, Brian May has decided to trade himself as a Diet Slash, appearing anywhere that needs a guitar solo, as well as being chief clog wearer and star-gazer because… well… he can’t offer the world anything else, other than looking exactly like Anita Dobson. Roger Taylor meanwhile is a drummer and, apart from Phil Collins and Don Henley, drummers don’t ever have a career beyond drumming.

And so, pillaging Freddie Mercury’s tomb is the only way to stay in the spotlight, which means that they’ll be wheeling his corpse out in hologram form just like Dre did with Tupac. Queen have confirmed that a Freddie hologram will be making an appearance at a special Queen performance to mark ten years of Queen musical ‘We Will Rock You’.

“It’s a little unfortunate they did that thing with Tupac as we’ve been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while,” guitarist Brian May told the BBC.

Of course, there won’t be a hologram of John Deacon because Queen obviously don’t care about him because he’s the only member of the group who wouldn’t mind a shred of taste and decency around Queen’s legacy.
