Is Bohemian Rhapsody accurate enough?

Bohemian Rhapsody managed to gran the attention of the Queen fans all over the world with them singing, stomping, and clapping along to the band’s outstanding songbook. To the others, it didn’t quite matter from which movies the tracks were chosen. The main aim seemed to recreate one meticulous Queen performance every single time there was a halt.

However, Bohemian Rhapsody still had a plot to follow so much historical ground in the rock music industry. There’s no doubt in the fact that there is absolutely no discrepancy in the famously weird writing and recording session that make up the movie as drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May on hand as consultants were involved in the making process throughout who are known to be quite aware of the nitty-gritty of the industry.

Despite this, things get a little more complicated when you look at the broader picture with the depiction of Mercury’s life and the timestamps involved in the movie. The fact that the meet arranged to have an encounter with Austin was introduced so late in the sequence gives rise to some complications. 

In addition to that, there’s also the matter of dates that needs to be taken into account. Instead of Seven Seas of Rhye, it was Queen II that was given the right slot. Certainly Fat Bottomed Girls couldn’t have played as it did during their first US tour in 1974 as it is known to have been out four years later.

Moreover, there was an inaccuracy seen as to who came in the band’s lives and the timings at which they arrived. Mercury did not get to meet Paul Prenter, his personal assistant, through Reid. It was all made up leaning towards the question whether Bohemian Rhapsody was really accurate all along or no.
