How did you feel when you first saw Freddie with a moustache?

For what I've read most fans back then weren't happy about it, and they starting tossing razor blades on stage or sending them by mail.

I too've read that. Sucks kinda.

Freddie: I wonder what these darlings have sent me today *reaches inside envelope and cuts self* GOD! OH GOD! HELP ME! Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

John: Oh, I really wish he wouldn't open his mail during our silent reading time.

I'm interested in knowing if there are any pictures of Freddie with long hair and a moustache or John with beard/moustache. I've seen one picture of John with mild stubble but that's all. He's the only one I've not seen with major beard-age.

I was like 12 when Freddie grew his stash and to be honest at the time I couldnt even recognize him. I always prefered the old look but as time passed I accepted it.

Whe I first read that, the OH GOD! GOD! HELP ME! I thought of Peter Griffin from Family Guy. I don't know why. It just reminded me of him.

Personally it never bothered me back then. I was more interested in the music rather than the way they looked.

HATED IT!!!

Particularly since I had liked all of his many looks up until that point, most especially the leather clone look he had during the Jazz/Live Killers albums.

But you can't be a pop princess if you look like a leather queen!

(great question, btw...)

Haha, you're so right. I could just imagine that too. John would be Brian.

I was about 11, I think. Didn't like it at first. But didn't really care much either. Got used to it soon enough.

You can judge a man by his whiskers and Freddie had a fine set.

I did not notice the stash. I mildly opposed the shorter hair on John and Freddie. I was somewhat disappointed with The Game (synthesisers and mostly top 40 short song sound) But the Game was neww and enjoyable nonetheless.

I never thought about it one way or the other. People are allowed to change their looks, and like someone else said, I was more interested in what they sounded like than what they looked like.

It didn't bother me in the slightest, he still wrote great songs, and sang them just as good.

heh, I was sort of thinking about Family Guy when I posted it.

I can't say that I'd've been too impressed by his cookie duster after seeing him with the combed back, greaser look from Jazz. To each his own, I guess?

Thought it was a bit naff but more interested in the music than the looks!

I first saw Freddie with a moustache, in the Ga Ga video (7th place in a VH1 top 10), before I was a fan, and said to myself: this guy is soooo ugly! I hate him! And immediately afterwards, I saw the video for WATC and BoRhap and sighed: he's such a cute boy, damn it! So... I guess I'm not very fond of his 80s looks, but what matters is the music, after all...


I LOVE QUEEN!
