Apparently Freddy had a strong sense of pitch and control, and could do single takes on track after track after track.
Mercury was the best male rock vocalist that ever lived, past & present IMO. He made it seem easy, but if you've ever tried to perform Queen music you quickly realize that his range was unreal, and his arrangements bloody difficult as hell. When they had the tribute concert for him, the only guy who could barely sing his material was George Michael, and that was a still a joke compared to Mercury's pipes.
