Our dear Freddie should have been able to join his family friends and fans for a big knees up on his birthday but sadly he couldnt, although he was around im sure. I'm wondering if anyone has ever made a photo manip of how Freddie would look today if he were still with us? Here is my idea.

Happy Birthday, Fred.

Is that Freddie Walnuts from The Sopranos?

I'm no use with photoshop or anything like that, but I don't think Freddie would have looked anything like that at all.  Don't know if you ever noticed just how thin Freddie's hair was getting (before his illness started affecting his features)???  I think he would have been plumper, quite a bit wrinklier, shaven head and full beard like he had in the later 80s.  Only Gray :)  I also think that as dentistry became far more advanced, he may have eventually had something done there, too.

I honestly can't see him ever having fixed his teeth. I think past a certain point he would have noticed his teeth were almost as legendary as his voice. I also can't see the shaven head, but who knows, if he had gone bald he wouldn't have had much of a choice. When I hear his birthday mentioned every year I often wonder what he would've looked like.

I wonder if he ever would've gotten plastic surgery like a few aging rockers have.

I really doubt he would have done anything with his teeth, did he not once say that he would be scared to alter his teeth in case he lost his vocal range or something like that; sure I read that somewhere. Would he have had cosmetic surgery elsewhere? I really dont know; I cant see him going "michael jackson" or if he was losing his hair "Elton John".

I just thought that he would age in the same we David Essex has (google: David Essex 2011)

I have some theories on what he would've looked like.

Also - he wouldn't have gotten his teeth fixed.  He didn't have to.  They didn't stop him from having more sex than the entire African continent, or making more money than God.  When you're that successful, you should keep your munted teeth just to say 'fuck you' to anyone who thinks they need fixing! :D

His teeth were part of his character and he was pretty gorgeous as well and i think he would of grown old gracefully without plastic surgery, he didnt need it anyway and he would not of gotten fat, he always kept himself trim

That picture is quite optimistic. I think Freddie would be pretty much be bold these days.

He had started to lose his hair (take a look at Live Aid video), so I think he would be quite bald now

I have just realised that the picture I painted earlier was actually reminiscent of how Billy Joel actually looks today lol.  Yep, those features but with Freddie's face :)

You are one real sick MOFO.  True, though, and quite funny as well :)

He's aged very gracefully.  Hasn't changed in 20 years.

LOL.... Charlie Chaplin in "A KING IN NEW YORK".... what a great, bitter film. It's a shame he had to make A Countess From Hong Kong with Brando. Doing everything himself would have been much better.

That said, he doesn't look much like Freddie. Well, **except for the pose... he's "King Shadov" [as in SOD OFF]" performing HAMLET in that scene.

I think Freddie would have been a porker by now. (as in fat) .... probably like Elton John.

Not bad. Kinda like an aging Indian guy. I can see him pulling off that look. Just without the T Shirts.... he would have surely ugraded to something more "glamorous". (his word not mine)
