Ezio Auditore : Great channel, can you do a video about how bands like tool use odd time signatures ?

There's a starman waiting in the sky : Please do a video on Paul Rodgers, another great singer that Freddie himself loved.

red panda : A video about dimebag darrel would be cool just saying

imicca : I won't be a rock star. I will be a legend. I'm just a musical prostitute, my dear.

Revolver : In the thumbnail Freddy Mercury looks like a arcade fighting character, right?

bradybekir : im not even kidding when I say this, but your channel is the best thing ive ever seen on YouTube. perfectly written, perfectly narrated, perfectly placed clips. it just can't get any better. much appreciation Polyphonic. keep it up!

Daniel B : This is by far one of the best channels on youtube right now, thanks so much Polyphonic. Ever since I've heard Freddie go high on Under Pressure I've been fascinated by his vocal abilities, truly inhuman.

Danisaur ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ : Never clicked faster

Lilly Rey : The reason Freddie Mercury is so good? His voice gives me chills.

Lugaid13 : Can you please please please do a video on Neil Peart?

Calamari : Queen was a direct result of the prog movement. You should talk about some prog rock bands.

ACEleSS Bros. : You should do a video on In the Court of the Crimson King, or just king crimson in general. I'd me interested to hear what you ahve to say

The King Of Limbs : We need a video on The Strokes, specifically the chemistry between Nick Valensi’s and Albert Hammond Jr.’s guitars

Casey's Vinyls : What about Jim Morrison

Nudel der Große : YES, I love Queen so much and Freddie is my favourite vocalist off all time!

Erin E. Fortin : Freddie was, and remains, the greatest vocalist of all-time. Others have achieved their own monumental benchmarks and each are equally gifted, but no one could command the range and harmonics across genres that Freddie so casually mastered. Personally I'm a huge fan of Freddie as well of George Michael, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, and many others, but none capture the epitome of musical genius like Freddie. I still miss his presence in our world to this very day; God rest his soul.

JimmyBeSlick : That thumbnail of Freddy Mercury is so legendary. He looks like a character from Street Fighter.

Donnie Moder : No, they won't probably all say Freddie Mercury. Sorry mate.

Chicken Permission : Mike. Patton.

Just Kids : I can't believe it. Over the past few days I've been obsessively diving deep into the life and career of this guy and then you happen to upload this. Some things are meant to be.

kirby march Barcena : He sang "The Show Must Go On" on a single take and he did this at the time his health is really worst,it was even said that he could hardly talk after leaving the studio and left his bandmates speechless as they felt the message of the lyrics. That song is one of his best...a swan song for one of the legendary greats.

T Movi Shift : Oh man, miss those times where singer could actually sing and autotune was out of the equation

dethroan : i fucking love the style and topics covered in your in your videos man, keep it up!

Noel Grund : A video abot Mr Bowie would be fantastic as well,Love ur chanel

richety cricket : Maybe blowing Elton John backstage had something to do with it

Nick Number : A story came out a few years ago that measured Axl Rose's vocal range as the widest of any on the Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Singers of All Time list. Freddie only placed 11th. This seems awfully hard to swallow for me. What's your take on it? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/music-news/10848713/Axl-Rose-has-a-larger-vocal-range-than-Mariah-Carey.html

El Guapo : Could you do a video on Chris Cornell's voice?

Raj Kanapathy : 2:36 Did he just say Freddie's nuanced vocal delivery _belies_ the emotion of the song? I think it is the opposite - Freddie really brings the emotion to front and center through his singing

crispwhite : Jeff Buckley next please

HiddenSquid : Can you do an episode of The Beatles genre diversity please?

C O C K T A I L : Maybe a video about Grace Slick?

dt089 : You really need to do a video on Chris Cornell and his insane voice and range.

Juan Tavarez : You sir, have a great fucking channel.

Pip IV : Maybe Bon Scott next? He was pretty fucking wild, what he gave to AC/DC and rock n' roll was phenomenal.

IliberTV : Do a video about Mariah Carey. She's got a 5 octave vocal range and has mastered it in a way nobody else did, bringing many genres into her music and setting trends and vocal templatesfor upcoming R&B and Pop singers.

Cal : “Almost anyone will say Freddy Mercury” wtf that’s just so not true whatsoever

Lorenzo Giani : Do a video about Jimi Hendrix. C'mon, I know you want it.

Michael Metzger : He wasnt a rock legend! He is a rock legend!
