Is Freddie Mercury underrated?

I feel like his legacy is overshadowed by that of Bowie, Prince and MJ (the three male dominant titans in pop and rock music).

What do you think?

Underrated how? Queen is a well known band. From my angle, if u Look a bit more closely & observe the whole picture, surprisingly U'll find that Prince is far more underrated as a single artist than Freddie Mercury... in terms of capabilites and body of work that was put out. You will find people talking and prasing D.Bowie, MJ, Sting, Nick Cave, etc... but Prince, not so much... at least in this part of southeastern Europe.

No, he's underground... about 6 feet underground.

you have a very myopic view of music.

There is no way that Queen are overshadowed by MJ. In Britain, at least, MJ is a novelty act, (with dodgy connotations), Queen were serious artists.

you are not really trying to compare a singer like MJ to a creative artistic behemoth like Bowie are you?

Eveyone knows that Freddie Mercury was the greatest frontman, everyone knows that Queen are in the premier league of bands.

I'm not into them, so not really just the hits.

That's essentially my point. Good hit makers, terrible [for the most part] albums.

You're just full of terrible opinions aren't you?
