Scientists Explain Freddie Mercury’s Voice

So now will they turn their attention to Freddie’s erstwhile duet partner, Montserrat Caballé (who’s still alive!)? Ew explains: ‘A group of Austrian, Czech, and Swedish researchers have used science to prove Mercury was just as good a singer as listeners thought. Well, not quite as good. Legend had it that Mercury’s voice was capable of spanning four octaves. The researchers weren’t able to confirm this from their data (they used a mix of archival Mercury performances and interviews for data) but still found evidence that Mercury was extremely skilled at modulating his voice.’
