Nothing to do with tomatoes but worth sharing. I've always been a big Queen fan. I admit I miss Freddie and all of the great music they put out...As I'm getting older I'm appreciating classical acoustic guitar more and more. No one was happier than me when I was tipped off to this un-believable CD. A classical guitarist by the name of Carlos Bonell has done a CD of all Queen tunes. Even if you're not a big Queen fan you can appreciate this one. You can hear him do "Love of my Life" on youtube here:
and "Who Wants to Live Forever" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO0ezPJjwls

I rarely go out and buy an entire CD but I did with this one. It is so awesome. Two of my favorite things combined, Queen and classical guitar. Reminds me of a Reese's cup....ha!
I'm sure some will disagree but in my mind Queen was one of the greatest talents of all time. One of the saddest days of my life was when I heard that Freddie Mercury had died. I knew something rare was gone forever. One of the benefits of living close to Cleveland is being near the rock hall of fame. I admit I take that for granted. I've only been there one time and that was when they inducted Queen. It was so cool to see but sad at the same time. As they trotted Freddie's mom on stage with Brian May and Roger Taylor anyone that didn't tear up didn't have a heart.
So....in closing, I just wanted to share something cool with you. Gotta share the good stuff!
You'll want to see Freddie doing one of the songs live:

The greatest rock n roll frontman ever!!
