Q is for Queen, the English rock band that formed in London in 1970 with vocalist Freddie Mercury, bassist John Deacon, drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May. Audiences loved Queen because of their hit singles, live performances, showmanship and originality, they were voted the greatest British band of all time in a national BBC poll. I love Queen, but the Beatles are numero uno with My Bad Tequila. Queen's 1985 "Live Aid" performance was voted the best live rock performance of all time in an industry poll. Queen has sold more that 300 million albums as of this year, 2009.
Freddie Mercury prepared a statement on November 23, 1991 on his deathbed, confirming that he had AIDS. On November 24, 1991 Freddie left this world, RIP. He died of bronchial pneumonia, which was brought on by AIDS. There latest song at that time "The Show Must Go On," was said to be recorded in one try, a testament to Freddie Mercury putting it all into his final song. Now stadiums across the United States and I would imagine, across the globe blare "We are the Champions" and "We Will Rock You" at sporting events.
While we're on the subject of Queen, let's sidestep to Queen Elizabeth II, which will include Michelle Obama's totally inappropriate touch of the Queen of England. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." Michelle Obama has a responsibility as first lady to know and follow protocol of the individual countries that she visits. The Queen was gracious and did not make a big fuss of it; however, Mrs. Obama needs to do her homework. An excuse of "I didn't know," just doesn't cut the mustard.
Now heading north of England, I'd like to recognize Scotland and My Bad Tequila's newest Amigos, Steve and Alex (Alexandria) of Edinburgh, Scotland. A little geography, Edinburgh is located in the south-east of Scotland, along the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea. It has a spectacular, rugged setting with a vast collection of Georgian and Medieval architecture, it is considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. It is the second largest city in Scotland and the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom. In the 2009 YouGov poll, Edinburgh was voted the "most desirable city in which to live in the UK." WoW, I learn something new each and every day.
Steve and Alex are here visiting the Southwest and our great states of Arizona and Utah. Today, I had the pleasure of accompanying them to Sedona, Arizona where we saw and marveled at the Red Rocks of Sedona, Schnebly Trail and Cathedral Rock. Steve had his camera shutter going all day as he took over 350 photographs; Alex clicked her camera for over 100 pictures for lots of momentos. Steve, if you have an extra photo, please send My Bad Tequila one of your incredible shots. Great time was had by all.
My Scottish Amigos did ask for a recommendation on Tequila, since there are so many tasty and premier Tequilas, I'll recommend a few for you to choose from: Aha Toro Tequila, Don Julio 1942, Sol de Mexico, Don Julio Reposado, Patron and last but not least Cabo Wabo - made famous by The Red Rocker "Sammy Hagar" and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Take back any of these Tequilas to share with your family and friends and you will be on the receiving end of affection and complements. Steve and Alex, hope to do a Shot or have a Margarita with you in the future, perhaps while enjoying the British Open in Scotland.
Speaking of golf, Mr. Tiger Woods and his wife Elin are still not talking to the Florida police about Tiger's injuries due to "the car accident." Tiger is not going to play in his own tournament as the greens are hard to read with dark sunglasses. Looks as if the police chief is obtaining a search warrant for medical records to see if consistent with a bad golf swing or a residential fender bender. After this incident, Tiger may need a "Tin Cup."
