The Great Pretender - Freddie Mercury's career in photos

This shot of Freddie Mercury strumming a guitar backstage on the 1981 South American tour was quite an unusual sight. As Freddie's personal assistant, Peter Freestone, points out: “Freddie wasn’t fond of the guitar; he was only able to play four chords and didn’t like that.”
