"I adored Freddie Mercury and Queen had a hit called Radio Gaga. That's why I love the name. Freddie was unique - one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music. He was not only a singer but also a fantastic performer, a man of the theatre and someone who constantly transformed himself. In short: a genius."

   -- Lady Gaga

" When we worked together on Bad, I was in awe of his absolute mastery of movement on the one hand, and of the music on the other. Every step he took was absolutely precise and fluid at the same time. It was like watching quicksilver in motion." 

   -- Film director Martin Scorsese 

"It's nearly impossible to overstate the magnitude of the Beatles' influence - not just on music, but upon virtually every aspect of popular culture ... the Fab Four revolutionized the sound, style, and attitude of popular music ... Their initial impact would have been enough to establish the Beatles as one of their era's most influential cultural forces, but they didn't stop there."
