Thanks for your post JT I’m glad you got to see the film it’s a slow start but has one of my actors he played in the movie Vision Quest . Girl I wasn’t familiar with Tom of Finland but I am now lol. He is a lovely artist. He captures scenes in perfect motion and makes them appear as if they are actually happening at that moment in time.I was hesitant at first to look but I said forgive me father for I have sinned and took the plunge and girl I could not take my eyes off one particular photo. Wow it was gorgeous yes I’m a woman but I did enjoy viewing those porn scented they were so lovely. Everyone should check it out once you start viewing his art there is no turning back highly addictive I get why men want men after I seen his art I really do.

Jo T....So you have removed the wrapping from the Queen + Béjart DVD...that is a promising start! LOL. I find the video montage at the end of "And The Band Played On" so poignant...beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. That is also one of my favorite Elton John Songs. While I recognize almost all of the people in the montage, there were a few I was not familiar with. On the following Wikipedia page, they list the people who appear in that montage.

Katydy, its all black and white glossies, identical frames. Queen and Led Zeppelin are my favorite bands that I can listen to all day every day.
I work out only to Queen though, I have certain songs synchronized with certain machines and for power walking on the treadmill. Lol, it works though.

JoT I thought the same thing about the movie And the Band Played On, Phil Collins cracked me up.... and I noticed the Freddie poster too.
Ya know Freddie said early on he knew he was going to be a legend, sometimes I wonder if while living in India he had his Vedic Chart done. They say the Indian Vedic is the most accurate but complicated firm over Tropical western.

Someone said in some written article that he didn’t believe in that, and i don’t believe that for a second.

He knew he was going to be a legend and he also tried to live life quickly trying almost everything as if to squeeze as much in as possible. Who knows.

Katydy, yes I saw and heard the Robert Plant & Allison Kraus album. I think they sounded great together.
I saw an interview with plant and he says he cannot stand to listen to led zepplin music anymore and probably the prime reason he won’t tour again with Page and Jones.
Plants heart was Always in American blues so his alliance with allison was natural.

Jimmy page on the other hand will kill for a reunion. Not to mention it would help him get away from constantly filing suit and going to court against his next door neighbor, singer Robbie Williams for property issues. Lol!

Speaking of Zeppelin, did any of you see on YouTube the kennedy center tribute to Led Zeppelin back in 2012? Hearts rendition of Stairway to Heaven was amazing and even Led Zeppelin gave heart a standing ovation.

I know this is Queen oriented but while on the subject of the rock room....

Jo, I had to laugh when you mentioned my stark white walls. I had the whole house painted a while ago and everyone wanted me to go with more color. I dug in my heels though and the house is white. The painter told me he thought it might be boring, but when he was finished he was delighted with how bright, light, and clean the house looked. I use my wall hangings and other things for the pops of color. I was in the process of redecorating my downstairs when the virus hit, and it all came to a halt. I have a love of deserted houses and sadly, most of those photographs are still out in the garage waiting to be hung. I have to get a few pieces of furniture so I can see where they will look best.

I had seen And the Band Played On several years ago, but wanted to see it again after all the discussion here. It was hot and humid yesterday so it seemed the perfect time for a movie. I would have missed the poster and the music during the bath house scene if someone (MHZ??) hadn't mentioned it. Jo, I don't think I had ever heard of Tom of Finland though after Googling I realized I was familiar with his work and could see his influence on Freddie.

Rainbow, thanks so much for the link. That montage was heartbreaking, and while I knew most of the people, your link was very helpful. I was so involved with identifying the people as they were shown that I was almost surprised when Freddie appeared. It was like a little shock to the heart.

Lsgp, I probably saw the Kennedy Center tribute to Le Zeppelin because I never miss watching that, but sorry, I don't remember it. Just saw your link...….very cool!

Yeah I had googled Finland’s art for the first time once and my brother went to use my computer and I had left it open that’s before my accident and I ran before he got there and shut my computer off. I would’ve died if he saw that I was looking at naked men lol

Keep I mind my brother went to catholic mass every Saturday with my grandmother he would’ve told her for sure. This is the lady that flipped out when I and my friends were watching purple rain and the sex scene with that hot chic and prince was on and my grandma thought we were watching porn.That’s Oklahoma friends.

@Lsgp03, Led Zeppelin and Heart ARE Queen-oriented! Robert Plant and the remaining members of Queen performed Zeppelin's "Thank You" during the Freddie Mercury tribute. Also, the band Heart once toured w/ Queen. In an interview, Nancy Wilson relayed how Freddie Mercury had a "big thing" (platonic) for Ann Wilson. He wanted to "hang out" w/ her. Check out 1:54/7:40 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sAmqTyx_CY). I'm a longtime Heart fan. When I was young, I wanted a voice like Ann Wilson. I last saw Heart in concert in Aug. 2019 during the Heart: Love Alive Tour. Joan Jett and Elle King (another fav') had opened up for Heart. Ann and Nancy Wilson sounded fabulous! Yes, I've seen Heart's rendition of "Stairway to Heaven" @ the Led Zeppelin tribute @ the Kennedy Ctr. many times over on YouTube. Ann Wilson was awesome!

@Rainbow61, I agree. The montage @ the end of the film "And the Band Played On" was poignant and lovely. I actually wasn't familiar w/ the Elton John song "The Last Song." Thanks for the Wiki page about the montage of famous individuals who had succumbed to AIDS. Besides Freddie Mercury and Larry Kramer, I myself could only identify Ryan White, Rudolf Nureyev, Arthur Ashe and Liberace. One face was VERY familiar to me, but I couldn't recall his name or where I had seen him. From the Wiki page, it dawned on me he was actor Robert Reed (Mike Brady from the TV sitcom "The Brady Bunch."), the all-American Dad and iconic TV father! It's no wonder he kept his sexual orientation a secret. It would've been scandalous and destroyed his career if he had come out of the closet. I grew up watching the syndicated reruns of "The Brady Bunch." I wasn't aware Robert Reed was gay and HIV(+). For me, the most heartbreaking images of the montage were the up-close, innocent faces of the babies born to HIV(+) mothers. You realized that back then, those babies didn't survive.

JoT, I understand that, what I meant was this thread in Queen related, not Zepplin related, even though Queen loved Zepplin

I have watched Rudi backstage today on YouTube. It was all Queen, and some preludes of what will be in book, but went so far to temp you to get the book to read the rest of the story. It was ok today.

Lsgp, when Rudi first started his Lives I would set Alexa to remind me to tune in. Once he began to focus more on his other projects I was less interested. I completely support his right to talk about anything and everything he's done. He's been prolific and successful in his career. I just don't have the interest in that. Maybe I'll check him out next week. Actually, aren't the Lives available on his YouTube channel?

Wow, lots of good conversation topics coming in lately! Rainbow...I ordered the magazine where Brian was voted best guitar player too, I can’t wait to get it.

Jo T, wasn’t the poster on the way in to the bath house scene? I thought it was outside on the street, but maybe we’re talking about the same one. It went by so fast that I assumed it was Freddie, maybe I’ll go back for another look. I also was surprised that Larry Kramer was not in the movie at all, especially since he played a fairly big role in the book. Maybe it was too hard to try and address all the themes in the book though. So far the Cynthia Lennon book is really good, lots of detail about John and the rest of the guys as they were getting famous. She and John were together something like 10 years or so, it ended when she came home and found John and Yoko together at her house....ouch!

I am a huge fan of the band Heart...the Dreamboat Annie album is my favorite. I would love to see them in concert. I didn’t realize that they opened for Queen , I need to check that out. I also love Led Zeppelin, I have just started to get into their albums more deeply.

LSPG, that is a really cool picture of Freddie, I love it on the dictionary background!

Chevy, nice try at trying to get the guys in your thread and Brian’s Health to play nicely, there is really no reasoning with them. They are determined to argue like children and try to destroy the site here.

So yesterday was my birthday, it was absolutely a fantastic day! My son and grandkids were here, and my parents came over too...their first outing since the Covid thing hit. It was so beautiful we were able to mostly be outside and enjoyed the weather. My husband got me a an electric guitar I had asked for, and it is a thing of beauty. I got an autographed Brian My red special at Christmas, I love playing it but I don’t want to rub off his signature by playing all the time. So I got a cheaper one that I can bang around on, but it’s really pretty. All white with gold knobs and details. I am now in guitar heaven, lol!




Love is still the answer, take my hand...

JT, I didn’t realize Tom Brady had AIDS either he kept it well concealed. Your right it would’ve been not good for it to be known when the Brady bunch first aired in the 70s that he was gay that would of been suicide for his career. You and I probably watched it as reruns on television as children I loved it.I”m glad you enjoyed the movie the parts of the movie about infants with HIV made me sad too. You will have to report back the movie was long but the book had so much more the movie left out I’m sure.

MHZ,, I agree I just saw that pic of poor Brian recovering and the terrible comments being made to him on Instagram by a few of the fans and thought how can they look at him in that weak state and say such horrible things. Your right he must never stop playing music it’s his soul I should know this. I was just so bothered by this. I just walked away. I really don’t see how Thor or Lee did it for as long as they did it’s terrible. I’m not perfect but I do correct my actions when I do wrong.Brian is in his 70s they been Rocking since 1973. That’s the year I was born that’s something to be very proud of.Thats 47 years wow I’m old!

I’m breaking my posts up they are a little long and overwhelming at times.There is a new site but they have put so many limitations on the subjects you can discuss. It’s the Queen machine site I guess lol. No talking about religion or talking about sexuality or being Gay it is absolutely banned. They are taking our freedom of speech. You can definitely discuss the band and Freddie and other subjects. I find that funny they ban talk of Anything to do with apart of who the front man of QUEEN was. To me that just makes no sense. That means no discussions of certain parts of his life that were him.Anyway that’s lovely isn’t it .Do they even know what Queen means lol. I think Freddie had a good idea. He made it work and it’s still around why change it.I know many of you aren’t fond of this site I’m not either I think this subject can be approached like any other it’s not a dirty word. It’s not immoral. It’s nothing to be ashamed of . It wasn’t 50 years ago and it isn’t now.As a child I found the world around me confusing when it came to such things and as an adult I still see some of the same old things happening will it ever change.
