Article: Croatian Queen

Freddie Mercury

Croatian Queen

What a wild coincidence that the week Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Queen was released brought a hilarious Queen-related news story. Milan Bandic, the mayor of Zagreb, Croatia, announced during a news conference that he wanted to make Zagreb an attractive performance destination for musicians, and called for David Bowie to perform there -- "and Freddie Mercury can come too." The news that the Queen frontman died eighteen years ago came as a shock to Bandic, who was recently elected to his second term. This is just another in a long series of public gaffes for the Croatian politician - from attempting to bribe a police officer while driving drunk to falling asleep during the Zagreb City Assembly. Well, he may not be a great civil servant, but at least he has good taste in music.
