Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Will you join me for tacos? – Queen tribute the Ready Freddies (Episode 189)

This week, I’m joined by 4/7 of Ready Freddies (John, Christine, Ann Marie and Amy), a Queen tribute band comprised of A-list Chicago musicians.

We got tacos from El Primo Chuki’s on Lawrence and talked about:

  • The band’s Halloween show at Martyr’s
  • The impending release of the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody”
  • Strategy for ordering tacos for a large group
  • The similarities between Lawrence Avenue and Beirut
  • Why did they start a Queen tribute band?
  • How did John end up in an all-female tribute?
  • The Queen-related “Twofer Tuesday” issue I had at the Loop
  • John’s adolescent fantasy made real
  • GTR Guitars gets a quick shout-out!
