This is the most interesting thing I've read about Fred in a long time, much more interesting than the usual stuff about his personal life. I'd like him to be remembered first and foremost as a great musician, song writer and singer, and not because he happened to die of Aids. Thanks for sharing this.

Harry's certainly outed himself as a Queen/Freddie fan before, and I'm pretty sure he cited his favourite Queen album as being News Of The World.
