Hello friends.

I really adore the song "A winter's tale".
Does somebody know who wrote it and when?...

Thanks!

Freddie Mercury and he wrote it during the innuendo sessions 1990-91

Actually, Freddie wrote it AFTER Innuendo sessions, as they were over in November 1990.


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.

Freddie wrote it, either during a sunrise or sunset at Montreaux, while freezing his balls off.

No they didn't.  "With the dreams of the world, in the palm of your hand".

He was just being ambiguous.

That would make a great opening scene for Peter Morgan's "Queen II : Back with a 'tache"
