Just browsing around the Freddie portion of the Pictures on this site...

When was this picture taken? It's Freddie & Annie Lennox:

And then these-- were they taken from a personal collection?

2) http://www.queenzone.com/multimedia/pictures/images/Freddie_Mercury/13520002535.jpg
3) http://www.queenzone.com/multimedia/pictures/images/Freddie_Mercury/13520009868.jpg

Yeah... I have a LOT of time on my hands. =]

Mex, hello there old pal... that's what I THOUGHT but Freddie looked pretty damn good in that picture, and at the Brit Awards, he looked like shite... did you ever see that VH1 special on World AIDS Day (AIDS: A Pop Culture History)?

Well, they had film of Freddie that day in the car and he looked like hell and it scared me. That picture doesn't scare me. :-[

I don't know about the first one, but the final three are taken from Jim Hutton's book, Mercury and Me.

Mex, I know I'm good looking... don't have to remind me ;)

Janet-- thanks! I can't find the book anywhere and I'm a bit wary of ebay because I'm actually having a bad experience right now with someone who I bought DVDs from... queencollector.com. Not answering my emails. :(

It's actually Tequila, and don't worry, I don't need AA, I know my limitations, only a bottle a day

I should know the Annie Lennox pic, being a huge fan of hers but I can't say exactly. Her hairstyle suggests 1987 but Freddie looks too thin for 87 so I dunno.

But here are the captions from 'Mercury And Me' for the other three. They are color in the book and cropped more than these, so they aren't scanned from there but are the same pictures:

1. Barbara Valentin and Freddie the night he wrote the song 'Delilah', dedicated to his favourite cat.

2. Freddie's last Christmas, 1990, with Joe and his bird.

3. For Mary's birthday in 1990 Freddie cooked up a feline surprise.

According to the book, 'Delilah' was written in Montreux in 1990, but I can't find a specific date mentioned nearby except it was between Mary's son Richard being born and Joe Fennelli's birthday. So all three of those are from 1990.

Interestingly, 'A Winter's Tale' was written before 'Delilah' :)

Thanks!

A lot of those songs from MIH make me very sad... especially "A Winter's Tale".

Maybe Annie Lennox decided to revert back to an old hair style? Who knows lol

The Annie Lennox one is definitely 87/88 - that's a GP style jacket he's wearing, plus he hasn't lost the weight he'd lost by 1990, and hasn't grown the Miracle beard. Maybe his birthday in Ibiza 87?

He has amazing stuff, but a lot of the time, he doesn't answer email for weeks.

Don't let this one experience sway you from Ebay... it's a really great place!

Well, okay... here's my situation: Back in early Feb., I ordered some DVD's and got them but one was to arrive in March. I ordered VH1 Legends which was to be transferred onto DVD for me. A few emails are passed back and forth and he says that the DVD will be ready March 15th. That passes, and I wait about 2 weeks and email him. No response. Two more emails... no responses. I don't get it. I paid him... I'd like to have my DVD as I have been waiting for a month. Ergh.
