Roger Taylor Dismisses Freddie Mercury Hologram
Since deceased rapper Tupac Shakur sensationally appeared as a hologram at last month's (Apr12) Coachella festival, there have been reports of other late music stars set to receive the same technological treatment - including TLC star Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes.
However, drummer Taylor isn't resurrecting his flamboyant former frontman, who died in 1991.
Taylor tells Billboard, "I don't think I want to. Were somebody (else) to use a hologram of Freddie, I would have no objection... It just doesn't sit too well with me. I don't want to appear with a hologram of my dear friend. It's the real one or no hologram for me."
The music star also revealed he considered using a Mercury projection for the Queen stage musical We Will Rock You, but eventually decided against it.
