Hello Everybody, With it being twenty years next month since Freddie
died.  I have just written and recorded a song about Freddie. Don't
worry, it's not too graphic and certainly not cheesy. It is about how I
felt after He died, and about how the press hounded Him in His final
 For those that are too young to remember, even though there
was rumours and the announcement the night before He died, that He had
AIDS, It still came as a great shock when it was announced He died the
following day.
 I was fortunate to see Queen live six times all in
all. The first time as a 17 year old at Elland Road Leeds in 1982. Then
four nights in a week on the 'QueenWorks' tour, the first time indoors
with Queen and I know this tour has been slated, but to have been there
was truly incredible. The last time I saw them was in 86 at Manchester,
unfortunately, not a good experience, cos I was too far away and
couldn't hear or see them properly.
 The song isn't meant to sound
like Queen, nor Freddie, haha, If only I could. But with the 20th
anniversary coming up, I wanted to do something creative for it.
hope you like it, having said that, I do think it will take quite a few
listens. You can download it, too, it's totally free. I also would
welcome any feedback either good or bad. Also if people think what I
have done is wrong, then I apologise. I am a massive Queen fan, the best
band ever IMO. Because all 4 of them were the best at what they did, in
other bands, they usually had a weak link, Queen didn't.
 Many thanks to those that listen, download and reply.
