ah he means the 1979 TV performance, where they both fought (the scenario with the beer etc.)

Although it has nothing to do with the question of MrsBadGuy....

btw, I dont give a f*ck of what people hear, say, tell, or fantasize. You know, the story with BoRhap is about AIDS, etc etc...

I am sure that FM did not walk around with a megaphone telling he has AIDS


Special thanks to Arif Mardin who arranged and produced some hot and spacey horns on "Staying Power" ;-)

No- you've messed up everything- FLASH is about AIDS, "Slightly Mad" is about gay sex...

I think Freddie and Kenny didn't really get along in the last few years of Freddie's life?

Anyway, Fenderek is right. Slightly Mad is about gay sex.

WHAT!!! Like everything FM did it was a way of working through the pressures of his life and from what i heard (from a very reliable source!) I'm Going Slightly Mad is most likely about "making fun" of trials and tribulations of going "mad".

By the time FM wrote that song he was suffering from the effects of AIDS and succumbed to the disease just a few short months after filming the video. He was exceedingly thin at the time of the filming and was in constant pain. He even has lost some of his vision. BTW some of the lyrics were written with the help of of Freddie's friend, Peter Straker.

Sadly IMHO it remains one of the finest videos ever made. If FM had lived who knows what direction they may have gone, but unfortunately we will never know.
