hello all....i was looking amongst all the various Queen sites i could and came across this picture of The Daily Mirror's front page when dear ol' Fred had passed....anyways, if you look at the caption of the picture of him, in bold it says 'The Last Picture...' so on and so forth....so i was wondering if this was the official last picture of Freddie??? If anybody has this issue or has seen it or at least has a bigger/better quality of the front page, would you please be willing to elaborate??? Thank you all so much!!!! =)

I don't think it's the last photo of Freddie taken by the press.

The last "offical" photo of freddie was in the greatest hits two album,i must be the only one to notice that his photo is touched up as in there is refelctive lighting in the photograph compare to the rest of the photographs taken of the same time of other members. Jim hutton took the last photograph i think,it was in the garden,although if you go to the bbc news website it has a photograph of freddie outside or something,there was another one of him crossing the street,looking tragically frail

Jim's photo of Freddie is not the last photo taken of Freddie.

This photo from the Daily Mirror was shooting sometime in September or October 1991 but certainly not last.
But I think last as Freddie walks away from his doctor which was sometimes said to be the turn of September 1991.
He had only one in the garden in November 1991 which was a shooting a week before his death and was published in newspapers Bizarre

"He had only one in the garden in November 1991 which was a shooting a week before his death"

Bit of a bold claim considering that his last garden photos have always been sold to us as having been taken in May.

But of course, you know best - you were there, right?

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, considering what 'newspaper' it is, but "AIDS son"? That's horrible. How about beloved son, or extraordinary son, or legendary son? AIDS wasn't what defined him.

I just saw this on eBay - it's news paper clippings from the first days after Freddie Mercury died...

This photo originates probably sometime in September 1991 was imprinted as the last photo in front of his house
the last is different from going to your doctor September or October 1991 that was in The Sun newspaper
Freddie's friend Jim Hutton said he claims that the photo as the Daily Mirror originates at the turn of August 1991

this is from November 15, 1991 when he was the last shooting at his home Garden Lodge
This picture is also listed as the last few weeks before death
Then I think, and no newspaper "The Sun" was imprinted photo as he returned from the doctor roughly October 1991

That photo is not what you say it is.

To anyone mining these threads for information, take note - John.Simon is a troll and enjoys posting fake info.

It bothers me to think that other posters will have to roam around in threads he's made a mess in, and have to post these warnings.
