Google’s Freddie Mercury tribute isn’t getting enough love

As you know, Google usually finds quirky ways of redesigning its logo on the site based on that day’s event. Well, on Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday, Google’s team of designers made an amazing tribute to him (watch above) which was just amazing to watch.

According to Blabbermouth, the ‘Doogle,’ as it’s called, barely made the Top 20 Best Google Doodles of 2011. It came in at number 19. WTF?

I know the guys can get very creative with those logos, but that is a 1:30 minute animation celebrating one of the best frontmen in history — and they did him justice. Why is it not in the Top 5 at least?

Anyway, watch it above and shut up! I guess you weren’t talking, only I was… Still, shush.


Brian May has tapes of Freddie and Michael Jackson

Brian May apparently has tapes of Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson together. This can be really great or really gross, depending if you’re Rob Halford or not.

There is a couple of very interesting tapes with Freddie singing with Michael Jackson that we’re looking at. Those kind of things we can work on together and it’s nice that in a sense Freddie is still involved in it.

Let’s hope ‘singing’ really means singing and isn’t a homoerotic euphemism. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…


Radio, what’s new? Happy birthday Freddie Mercury!

As part of a very exclusive deal Dose of Metal is having with Google Inc. we will occasionally feature Google Doodles  when they’re rock related, just to bring them more hits, and in return Google’s CEO cleans our shoes. If you haven’t seen it already, head over to google.whatever see it above, it’s pretty cool.

On a serious note, let’s get to the real point of this article — today would be late Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday, so speaking in the name of the whole Dose of Metal crew, we wish he was still around so we could make fun of him congratulate him.

In case you think Queen shouldn’t be mentioned on a metal site, well… you shouldn’t be listening to anything with guitars in it. In the end, make the jump to see the legendary Live Aid performance of their hit Radio Ga Ga, and get reminded of how rock and roll lost 50% of its charisma with Freddie’s passing alone.
