Incredible Concert Moment

Alright, sorry to go too Simmons-esque with this post, but I stumbled across this incredible concert footage from the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in 1992 in front of 50,000 fans at Wembley Stadium. Elton John sings an excellent version of the song, hearing 50,000 fans sing along is incredible, and at the 2:07 mark, Wembley Stadium simply explodes when the third part of the song is played. Who wouldn't want to have been on the field for this performance???

Please. Gn'R at their highest peak... Brits mourning the death of one of their most famous and beloved non-Beatles singers... Elton giving some soul to those lyrics. Revisionist!!!

Vocalists with less singing ability than Elton John:

Tiny Tim
Randy Neuman
Jeremy Rachlin
Ashley Simpson
Sheryl Crow
William Hung

That's the entire list. All but the last two minutes of that clip were karaoke hell. Hearing the original guys in the bridge just reminded me of how Elton John isn't fit to be Freddy Mercury's fluffer.
