Album Art: Innuendo

Russell Blackwood, director of local theater troupe Thrillpeddlers, shares a sentimental story of the first time he heard Queen's "The Show Must Go On." Spoiler Alert: it involves a lot of tears. Listen to the final song on the final album to be released in Freddie Mercury's lifetime and see what it has to teach you about endings.

I'll soon be turning, 'round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free
