In a world where on most days there is more bad news then good, we get nostalgic for a simpler time, with people we admired and looked up to as role models catching our attention and making us believe in the power of magic, glamour, and elegance.
From young, vulnerable up and coming musicians who had no idea they could ever be iconic stars to starlets who were still hoping for a big break, take a look at some photos that will touch your heart and your mind, and make you believe in magic again.
Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson meeting at the LA forum – 1980’s.
Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson formed a partnership in the 1980’s to work on three demos. “There Must be More to Life than This” features vocals from both Freddie and Michael; Freddie released the song on the Queen album, Queen Forever.
While the song was written in the Hot Space sessions, it wasn’t finished. Freddie Mercury would go on to release his own version as a solo work on his 1985 debut, Mr. Bad. The other songs were “Victory,” which was later used as an album cover by the Jacksons, and “State of Shock,” which had Rolling Stones undertones.
