Brendon Urie is currently hard at work promoting Panic! At The Disco’s new album “Pray For The Wicked” but he recently took some time to talk to Kerrang about one of his favorite artists.
Urie was asked to name an album that saved his life, and he talked about his love for Queen’s “A Night At The Opera.”
“Originally the first thing that initially got me hooked on Queen was Freddie Mercury,” Urie stated. “Just his voice. From the audio I fell in love with this character. But I had tried to mimic Freddie Mercury my whole childhood and still will never succeed. No one ever could.”
“There are so many emotions connected to that album,” Urie said.
“I was a teenager, being a teenager is tough. Music was always my turn to when I felt out of place. I remember being 14 years old, freshman in high school, new school, no friends and turning to that album just thinking ‘please find me some understanding. Because I don’t get along with anyone. I don’t understand anyone at my school. I feel so left out. But this album I felt so akin to the band.”
