Has anyone else wondered why Freddie donned the baggy white overalls for the "Tie Your Mother Down" and "Friends Will Be Friends" videos? Especially in the "Tie Your Mother Down" video; it seems so unlike his 70's style.

I'd say, because he felt like it! :P

Everyone doesn't need a reason for fashion. You don't see me asking you why you're sitting naked at the computer petting your pud, do you?

They were all out building the railway for the Breakthru video clip. Except John. He was the foreman.

Actually if you check out some old Who live pics, you'll see that he got the idea from Pete Townsend... I think

Those white overalls seem to me one of the coolest things Freddie has worn in his career.

Wish he could have dressed up like that more often.

Lots of people wore overalls in the seventies, so I guess it was kind of fashionable...
