It seems so wierd to picture Freddie as a grey haired, fatter, older man. It's impossible to picture and imagine.

I dunno it does not seem the same for Brian and Roger.

He probably would've had his right leg amputated by now.

You're right there. I completely agree with you.

Could never imagine Freddie being an old man...

But he probably would still have been such an energetic guy as he was in his best days.

There's a slim chance Freddie would be much like he was in 1986, except older.

Freddie was diabetic.  It's common for extremeties to contract osteomyolytis in diabetic patients,
in their later years.  Lostman would have you believe that Freddie would be in perfect health, completely
fit, and still bouncing around the stage, even though Freddie himself told us that was not going to happen.

Freddie wanted to be a stripper.  I once went to a strip club with Lostman, it was his birthday and we
took him to his usual spot.  Have you ever seen a 60 year old stripper?  After ponying up for 3 table dances
for Lostman, most of us had already 'lost' most of the $5.99 all you can eat buffet and had to leave. 
I have never been to that strip club since and found Jesus a couple of weeks later....  at a much nicer establishment.

He'd be duetting with Adele, singing Barcelona.

Maybe Queen would have broken up the music press would be plagued with rumours of their reforming.

At first I thought that would be hard to imagine, but it's really not that hard. I'm just imagining white hair, maybe a little bit balder, and some wrinkles here and there, and either more or less facial hair.

I don't like to think about it, but I have a bad feeling that Queen would have broken up by, say, '95, because of all the tensions in their personal lives that were tearing their lives apart. Although Freddie's illness didn't help anybody's emotional turmoil, it was alos effective in keeping the band together a little bit longer.

I can't really imagine him... although there are other singers who made it to that age in good health -- Alice Cooper, Brian, etc. So maybe he would have been? I mean even when he was extremely ill he fought on, so if he hadn't been ill he might have kept going despite age? But i can't really imagine queen staying together forever... like someone said, the illness and knowing things wouldn't last forever possibly kept them closer then they would have been otherwise.
