The Panic! At The Disco frontman knows exactly what his dream musical job would be and we are all for it.
Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has revealed the one other band he wishes he could be a part of…and it totally makes sense!
Brendon is currently starring in the Broadway production of Kinky Boots and sat down with Interview magazine for a chat (and a snazzy black and white photoshoot) when they asked him if there was any other band he wishes he could be in and his answer was simple and to the point:
“Queen, obviously. I wish I was Freddie Mercury, straight up.”
Yep, we can see that.
Brendon has, of course, been covering ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ on stage for years and dropped a recorded version as part of the soundtrack to supervillain mash up movie/Hot Topic fever dream Suicide Squad.
And hey, if Brian May and Roger Taylor are reading this, maybe they could give Brendon a call? They have been known to work with a wide variety of high pitched vocalists, most recently Adam Lambert. How about a one-off Queen! At The Disco showdown?
Brendon also added that watching a recent Mark Whalberg movie gave him an equally suitable back up choice:
“Led Zeppelin, because we just watched Rock Star the other day with Mark Wahlberg. [laughs] I forgot that John Bonham’s kid, Jason Bonham, is the drummer in that. That blows my mind. I’ve been on a kick lately. I’ll go months or maybe even a year or years without listening to a certain piece of music that I really worshipped, so I took a little break from hearing Led Zeppelin by choice, and now I’m flooding myself again listening to Led Zeppelin II and Physical Graffiti.”
Hey, we would certainly pay to see that team up too.
Brendon is appearing in Kinky Boots on Broadway until August 6th. Check out our recent interview with him in the video below:
