Photo Of The Day

Freddie Mercury riding Darth Vader

Tom Callins

Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury apparently had something for Darth Vader.

In 1980 Queen went on tour to promote their new album The Game.  During the Houston stop of this tour on August 10th, 1980, Tom Callins took this photo of Freddie and Darth closing the show.

It seems this was a semi-regular occurrence. There are a number of photos of Mercury riding Vader on stage.

It appears he’s also ridden Superman and Santa Claus. Why? ……..  Probably because he was Freddie F’ing Mercury!
