Freddie Mercury (Queen vocalist, songwriter, frontman) took classical piano lessons as a child for several years and could read music. However, he could play anything after hearing it only once and said he preferred keeping music in his head--not on paper. If he forgot one of his own songs, he would listen to a short recording, and then play the part he needed. As a last resort he would read the music but said that he didn't have the patience and hated doing it.

Queen - 'Who Wants To Live Forever'. 1986.  For the 1986 movie Highlander.  To this day, still one of my favorite songs.
