Nothing like footage of a terminally ill man to kick off a stadium tour, eh?

Actually; I do wish Queen hadn't had such a hateful attitude towards documentary footage. The Making of One Vision stuff in particular is kind of disappointing to watch, when you consider how much they hated the cameras being there.

Having said that; I do wonder why on earth they let cameras into the studio for that Innuendo EPK stuff. Talk about putting on a brave face.

as a song-writer, i think you need to re-evaluate your own definition of "awesome"...
the grand canyon is awesome, the pyramids at Giza are awesome, the taj mahal is awesome, the northern lights are awesome, space travel is awesome....a man wasting away to a premature death racked with pain and unable to stand for periods of time is NOT awesome

I'd rather watch Queen with Robbie Williams (whom I hate) than Queen with a dead singer caught on video.

I know of a really awesome film shot in 1963 by a guy called Zapruder. So awesome.

No by awesome i think he means that its deep stuff , the man in his final months performing such amazing things. Seeing that on tape is incredible, sad and amazing all in one.

"Wat innuendo EPK??"

When they were making the video for Headlong, they also did interviews and stuff. Freddie didn't really say much of anything, he just joked around with the band in a control room for a short while.

"But what a way to go out on , on top."

Yes, and in the end - it killed him.
C'est la vie.

Freddie didn't go out on top....i don;t know how you can describe someone who is half his healthy body-weight, riddled with bed sores and ulcers, blind and unable to control his own bladder as "going out on top"...that is anything but on top...in fact it's extremely undignified

I think where the dignity comes in is that he did not give up, and, despite his physical condition, pressed forward, determined to keep making music.
That being said, I do not enjoy seeing him, in that condtion. It is just so very sad, and, painful to watch. I'd rather just listen to the result of his struggles.

Doesnt matter that he was vanishing in physical form , its the ultimate performance that he gave that makes him go out on top. Especially in the condition he was in.

Look we all will certainly end up in a weak state when we get old . He was very weak but still soo unbelievebly strong in his last years

He recorded those vocals almost a year before passing away. He then went to record other tracks as well. Still, I agree it is a very good performance, one of his best. He had sang higher notes but that particular line in that particular song made it more special.

When was Mother Love recorded, by the way? I think I saw a sheet in the Champions of the World documentary that had May 10th 1991 on it but also there's a version saying that Freddie recorded until about two weeks before passing away.

Also, have you noticed a sylabe of Brian's singing in the "I'VE walked along in this lonely lane" part in Mother Love? I think we discussed that years ago but maybe some of the newer members haven't noticed it.

I sure hope there's footage of Freddie's last words "pee pee". That would be amazing to see. Let's hope they'll include it on the 30th anniversary release of Made In Heaven!

"Also, have you noticed a sylabe of Brian's singing in the "I'VE walked along in this lonely lane" part in Mother Love? I think we discussed that years ago but maybe some of the newer members haven't noticed it."

As the last verse of the song demonstrates, there's next to no chance that Brian could double that effectively for Freddie.
Freddie's voice was changing all the time anyhow, especially from '86 onwards.

As for when Mother Love was recorded ; from all the quotes I can add up in my head, it seems that Mother Love and A Winter's Tale overlapped in the recording process, and that the last thing Freddie did was for A Winter's Tale, at Metropolis Studios (and not Montreaux).

But you know; it's incredibly hard to get a straight answer on the subject of when his last vocal was laid down. I guess we could all ask a certain guitarist. Even if it wound up being April the 1st 1990, I'd still be impressed - Freddie was in terrible shape even then, and they're killer vocals.
