Following in the footsteps of a legendary parent can be a daunting task for even the most talented of artists. Nancy Sinatra had the task of following her father, Frank, and she got off to a rocky start. Her original attempts at music were unsuccessful, and she was in danger of being dropped by her own father’s record label. If it weren’t for her hit “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” that very well may have happened. The hit showed her in a different light, a bit more rough around the edges, and it resonated with the music world.

Freddie Mercury could take over an arena like no other performing artist we’ve ever seen. His combination of vocal power and theatrical delivery made it impossible to take your eyes off of his performance. Here he is in front of what looks like a sold out Wembley Stadium. Assuming they are at capacity there could be over 80,000 people at this show. Predictable as it is, this show ended up being an iconic moment for Mercury and Queen. Who could forget that yellow jacket?
