Hello all.. I've noticed Freddie's face has been getting fatter during the end of AKOM tour, and music videos from 1986 - 1990. From there it just got "skinny" again.

Was it just weight gain?

Most likely a side effect from the medication he was taking.

To me, he actually seemed "fatter" during the 1984 / 1985 Works tour, though that might have been because he tried to cram himself into pantsuits he hadn't worn since 1977...

Too many bangers.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Well he looked ok at the start, maybe I looked away and didn't see it happen? just shows how you have to pay attention

It was amazing how Freddie's head swelled during that short and infamous set. He looked perfectly fine when he took the stage; he belted several memorable tunes, and all was well. Then - horror of horrors! - his face expanded to grotesque proportions. It was a hideous and unmentionable episode, and Freddie was eventually carted from the stage in a wheelbarrow (which bowed from the weight of his obese, swollen features).

As for why? Eh, these things happen.

listen, Freddie was (nearly) 40 years old when Queen did the Magic Tour. To me, he looks just perfect.

By the by, I think by the time Queen did the Magic tour Freddie had stopped taking cocaine, so it's not strange he didn't looked extremely sharp anymore.

Starting from 1987, he had to take medication and then his face really got swelled up. Take for example a look at the promo-pics for I want it All.

I miss that man so much. :-(.

You could see the fullness of his face on the original Barcalona album cover. First time I saw it, I thought he just gained a bunch of weight. The thought of AIDS wasn't even flash in the general publics mind. Ofcourse four years later we all knew differently.
