“I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky”.
“Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me...”
“Don’t take it away from me because you don’t know what it means to me.”
I like that bit, that’s quite good.
Not the singing, the lyric.
Being from such a small community, it was such an inspiration to have someonewho’d achieved so much success on such a global level.
My parents thought it would be a great idea to bring a whole lot of Freddie’s workhome for me to take a look at.
When they told me his actual name was Farrokh Bulsara and he was a Parsi -it just blew my mind.
I was the only Zoroastrian in my school of about 1,000 kids.
The main challenge I had growing up was explaining to everybody what my identity isand speaking about Freddie was that this is who he isand it’s probably the easiest way for people to understand my religionand where I’m from.
There’s a few picture of people from the past who’ve had a massive impactand I feel that, you know, Farrokh Bulsara had a massive, massive impact,and for the young people who come to the centre they obviously know who he is but having a
picture on here is quite empowering.
