last night on VH1 i saw "Queen Legends" for the very first time... i literally jumped up when it showed a clip from Days of our lives in colour... Freddie looked really bad... i can now understand why the video is in black and white.

The "colour shot" was a scene from the making of TATDOOL, which I hope makes GVHIII!

I have seen the coloured TATDOOL and it really made me cry. He looked so bad in it!
He was so brave that he still did this video although he looked so sick.

I know! I have a feeling it'll turn out to be Jan, Nicole or maybe even Kate (??) -- it's being revealed (at last) this week, so stay tuned!
DOOL did a montage of old clips to Queen's song in 1992, and it was really good, though they haven't shown it much since then!

I wondered if the soap had ever or will ever use the song. My mom watches it.. and got me into it for awhile some years back. I stopped watching when Susan Banks/Kristen stopped appearing. I loved Susan :)

Sorry to get off the subject. I saw a Queen Legends show on VH1 in America years ago, but don't recall this part specifically.

Will be interesting to see what they do with GVH3. I would imagine that since Freddie was participating and was probably aware of behind the scenes stuff, if he didn't want it shown he would have said so and it wouldn't be released in the first place, so I do kind of expect them to show it. It's difficult, but it's reality.

I'm sure commentary for the video itself will be interesting.

I've seen both versions of the video and at first it used to make me cry.

But one day someone pointed out how incredible FM was to face the fact he was dying and to make a video in his frail condition. Think about it, here he is doing what he loves and sounding incredible, whilst Brian, Roger and John having full knowledge of Freddie's impending demise, go on with the charade, if they are not the bravest, most dedicated musicians, I don't know who is. For this they will always have my unfaltering respect forever.

Yeah, when I saw the video for "Days of Our Lives" I couldn`t believe how skinny he was. I have seen a picture of him in colour and he is wearing a lot of make-up. I love the vest he was wearing.

Susan/Kristen was a real hoot! I loved the "wedding" to John/Elvis, especially when she got slugged by a guest (Laura) and her fake teeth flew across the room and landed in the punch bowl!!
Okay, back to the video now...I would love to see the making of the video, no cuts, plus outtakes. Not being morbid but seeing Freddie yet knowing he was in tremendous pain but hiding it really piqued my interest. I saw colour outtakes of TATDOOL and the makeup he had on was hideous in colour, it looked like it was put on with a trowel -- though it was very effective in the right lighting and shot in black-and-white.
God bless Freddie for thinking of the fans despite his pain.
