Could this be inspired by Andy Warhol? Queen’s frontman Freddie Mercury is known to be a showstopper on stage. This scene from their music video for I’m Going Slightly Mad is the perfect rock & roll visualization for the 1991 track. Other band members sported strange looks and silly mannerisms as well, with guitarist Brian as a penguin, drummer Roger Taylor with a tea kettle headpiece on a tricycle, and bassist John Deacon as a court jester. Talk about a madhouse!
