As we all know Freddie considers lipsynching a lack of respect towards the crowd (and it really is), and on numerous ocassions he bashed a lot of artists who constantly lipsynch while singing live.

To my amazement I found Freddie lipsynching at the performance from the Montreux Pop Festival shown on the GVH2 DVD.

What do you guys think about that?

The lip synching was forced on them at Montreux, thus the reason Freddie makes it very obvious that he is doing it. Both Montreux performances and the San Remo appearance were mimed.

Miming for promotional videos is, of course, an entirely different matter.

It's pretty obvious that Fred is taking the piss out of the idea by not bothering to sing into the mic at the right time. etc. etc.
Interesting footage to see cause I'd never seen it before, but not something I'll return to anytime soon.

Considering how much he loather lip synching I wonder if he got one of those usual tantrums when they told him to go out and lipsynch.

He is lipsinching on killer queen on the video 'we will rock you' (montreal). Or is the music synching him?

WWRY is an edit of two different shows, thus the reason for being out of synch at times.

And, of course, it is out of synch because it is overdubbed. listen to TYMD - how many Freddies can you hear singing? :)

Ever since I saw Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" (atrocious spelling the fault of Prince) video, I have decided that video lip synching is really okay.

It sounds to me like during what you all have described, he tried the sulking approach. The thing that drives everyone else up the wall about it is that really, he was behaving perfectly. No one can say to him, "stop doing exactly what we told you to!" One could say, "stop being so obvious about it", but I can think of a multitude of flippant responses to that guaranteed to make a person start ripping out hair.


God wants you to send me some money.

Do you remember the reason behind it? Was it because he was ill? That was 1989 right? Thanks

"Freddie was really pissed, according to Phoebe's book"

He was pissed because the playback tape was running slightly too slow (or too fast?) which the audience didn't notice though.
