„Jimi Hendrix is very important. He's my idol.“

— Freddie Mercury British singer, songwriter and record producer 1946 - 1991
Context: Jimi Hendrix is very important. He's my idol. He sort of epitomizes, from his presentation on stage, the whole works of a rock star. There's no way you can compare him. You either have the magic or you don't. There's no way you can work up to it. There's nobody who can take his place.
