Re: I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody"

I don't think there was a need to completely fabricate all the things that they just blatantly made up in the movie

the Queen story is good enough and didn't need to be dramatized for Hollywood...

lots of guys did it in the 70s and 80s

I think Tommy Lee was one of...
