I am from Australia, so I can get in first (it is already Nov 24th here).
Just a different way to remember him, I wondered if people had ideas on what our dear Freddie would be doing had he lived longer - would he still be with Queen, going solo, or maybe producing music for others?
Or would he have had a solo career in the opera or ballet? I think he could have really developed something more in the operatic area. But I don't think he would have left Queen totally ("We're going to be together until we F***** well die!!" - remember that?)
What ideas do others have? It is just another interesting way to reflect on his life. Thanks

If Freddie would still be alive, Queen would have probably followed the path of most bands who have been together for over 20 years, and make one album every 5, 6, or 7 years.

Always bringing a lot of excitement for a comeback.

I'm not so sure. I seem to recall that Brian has stated that the discussions about a Queen musical began when Freddie was alive. I think he would have loved the idea!

I don't think there would've been a musical, but only because I believe that if he'd lived, they'd have kept making music as Queen and therefore there wouldn't have been the time available to produce the musical in the way they wanted. Look at how involved Brian is. He (and maybe Fred too)probably would've wanted to have the kind of input Brian has now, and therefore it wouldn't have been viable, as the albums would come first.

I firmly believe that Fred only stopped touring due to his HIV status and that if he hadn't become positive, they'd still be recording and touring and giving the Stones a run for their money as the oldest rockers (but doing it better of course!).

Spending money on more Japanese treasures, adding to his cat collection (or "family"), getting the koi pond working properly, and probably living in another country due to high taxes in England.
And recording and trying out new sounds, don't forget that! I wonder if he would have wanted to produce a group or single artist?

I think he would still be with Queen, Maybe taking a break from them every now and then and proding his own solo. But what worries me is if Freddie was still alive, i might not have known about them.
