here's a good Question,
when did you prefer Freddie?
his glam look in the 70's or his signature moustache look in the 80's?
For me, hmmm, I love both! but I probably like 70's Freddie. yay. XD
you?

I will still love Freddie no matter how much hair he's got on his head or above his lip.

70's - Freddie's songwriting ability was never the same after The Game.

I prefer 1980s Freddie. He had the mustache, and that mustache gave him the powers of replicating his songs live! lol


I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me-Freddie Mercury

I like him more in the 80's than the 70's but he was just a magnificent all round person and sorely missed

80's freddie

Although if you think about it Freddie radically changed his look and the 80's freddie did not really resemble the 70's Freddie, he appeared more grown up and more reserved I think, at least during interviews anyway, on stage he was still the master

'70s

Much better music.

Songwriting,  vocal arrangements obviously 70's. 
live performance, vocal power 80's
Appearance,  1973-76,  Then 80-86

You have your head up your ass 24/7. 
Take the shit out of your ears.

"Revenge", "Destroyer", "Creatures Of The Night", "Alive"

Heavier than anything Queen ever released.

Don't really give a hoot what he looked like but the music was certainly better in the 70s. He was more ambitious, and more willing to take risks with Queen stuff. However, Barcelona was new and interesting, so who knows what direction his solo career would've gone. Probably more interesting that Brian's forthcoming concept album about a world ruled by badgers ...
