Right before all the bleeding hearts start their morose whining, let's get one thing straight.

no whining, no moaning, no crying and no "it's the end of the world" stuff, ok - and no pathetic outpourings of emotion

let's mark tomorrow with some dignity and class. Remember the music dear freddie bequeathed us, listen to a queen song or two and look back fondly at what was an outstanding musical genius...remember it's 13 years - we should all have got on with your lives by now, and the day should serve as a reminder of the good stuff - nothing more, nothing less!!!

Well said, sir.

I may drink a glass of wine in his honor, maybe go out of my way to listen to a song or two, but I doubt I'll make too much of a big deal about it.

Hi, yes, let's remember Freddie in a nice way, maybe listen to his music, watch a DVD, and enjoy the experience. I listen to Queen everyday anyway...
To avoid all this "morose whining", I have started another topic to reflect on where Freddie would be today if he was still around.
Cheers Freddie RIP

I totally think so...
I always think about him everyday...not only this day but also rest of the days.
I hear he was a very lively man. He used to enjoy life merrily.
I'm going to tell him about everything joyful that I recently have had.
In his honor, in honor of his great works, in honor of his life being a rock star, I also drink a toast to him with some champagne he loved so much.
I love his banters and his "Cheers!" to the audience.
Freddie, Cheers! as you used to say... RIP

As Brian mentioned at the beginning of The Freddie Mercury Tribute...

"We're here to celebrate the life, the work, and dreams of one Freddie Mercury".

Bollocks to you killjoys!

I'm dusting down my 'Magic' jacket as we speak and sticking on my lovely moustache.

Bit of 'We are the Champions' down the Arndale will go down a treat with the coffin dodgers.

Will then play out Freddie's final hours as he would have according to Peter Freestone before peeing myself at about quarter to seven.

Call yourselves Queen fans!!!

'Today the cloud it hangs over us and all is grey.
But someday, oneday.......'

RIP Freddie.

Last night I watched the first few tracks of Live at Milton Keynes and had a glass of champagne.

Here's to you Freddie! We still miss you.

I'm actually having party today...
I'll try to play few good old tunes... We'll listen to Zeppelin, Purple, Sabbath- I guess there'll be plenty space for Queen... And I'll get really wasted!!! :))))

i think it's good that we got it right this time

was a bit worried about starting a thread like this - you never know how the apologists and whiners might repsond

but i think as decent human beings we've managed to not overreact today

...queen II will be my choice listening, as it reminds me of how good Freddie was once he was actually given a decent amount of studio time...the shackles really came off on that record - they used every studio technique possible to make a great record - side black - just blows you away

I think it's a celebration of his life what we're doing today. Freddie gave us so much fun and happiness so we should remember him with joy. Although some tears have fallen from my eyes today, but the important thing is enjoy all the things He did when he was alive. That's why i listened the Freddie Mercury album, and I just watched Queen On Fire. God Bless You Fred Wherever You Are.RIP.


Please will you direct me in the right way?

its quite funny and misterious, because i started to listen to Queen a few months after Freddie`s death
Here in argentina, Queen is very popular, and after fred`s death, the press was talking about him, his life and his music all the time
so i said to myself "lets buy Greatest Hits II"
so, my doubt is : what would be happened if freddie were still around???"
i started to listen to queen, basicaly, because fred`s death, so, maybe, if freddie would be alive, i`d never listen his music
Anyway, i wish he never died
But i thank him for leaving us his music and his magic
Fred, you are unforgetable!!!

When I got up in the morning and read this thread, I promised NO CRY and NO TEARS. But some tears came into my eyes when I was listening to "Too Much Love Will Kill You". But I made efforts not to cry anymore...
I'm OK now, Yes!
I love you Freddie!!!
Even though many times I've said so, I'll say "I LOVE YOU FREDDIE!!!" every hour of every day...
Again RIP

One glass of wine...QUEEN II playing...a simple heartfelt 'Thanks, Freddie!' - and on with the day.

Instead of mourning about Freddie's passing 13 years ago, let's turn on the DVD, watch 'We Will Rock You' and celebrate one nice Queen concert from exactly 23 years ago, with a big big smile and a glass of champagne. That'll do it. That's the right way to remember this great man.

I drank some champagne
Listened to songs in my car
and really....

Just thought about him.
But I didn't blubber around like some fool would, because I do not think he would like that.

Cheers.
