Speaking of rock opera's I admit to being a fan of "Queen" Freddie Mercury who was a talented musical genius wrote some wonderful music. He is now dead and he died of drug and sexual overdose but he was Queen. My favorite by far of his music was "Bohemian Rhapsody" Listen to this beautiful composed piece and you will see Mercury playing the keyboard, singing the song he wrote. Fantastic.
Incidentally Freddie was from India, educated in England. This song was produced in 1975, 38 years ago.
Incidentally, my music swings a lot of different ways. I enjoy some of all different types, country, western, rock, classical, contemporary jazz and many others. If it sounds good, I like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-ARuoSFflc
