Is this an innuendo type thing? You want to know if Cliff and Freddie actually slept together?

Only two people know what happened. One is dead, the other has not said. There are some things we don't know, others we never will. That is it. End of story.

Because he was visitting Freddie


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

from what i gather cliff was not a close friend.

Even if Cliff wasn`t a close close close friend, he might have happened to visit him the day he died. I mean... people visit other people when they`re sick. Neither Cliff nor Elton nor Roger nor anybody knew that Fred would die in Nov 24th, so the ones who visitted him the last aren`t neccesarily his closest friends. It`s "luck"

Is Cliff gay? I thought they were just friends John S. Stuart.

I think I read somewhere in one of the books that Cliff was around alot in the last days of Fred's life.

They were both gay and had lots of steamy nights at Garden Lodge together. What do you think "IT'S IN EVERYONE OF US" is about ?

imo... its the best most truthfull bio out there, and its sooo fukin sad, it goes into loads of detail about freddies life, his spending, friends, false rumours, it also concentrates alot on the new-york days also..
i'm not sure but i bought it from a big book store in the uk, you could try amazon they seem to be good!(hard back version)

i dont know if many know but in an interview with mack(queen producer/close buddy of freddie) he said that freddie said to him in 85 that he was bored of the gay life style etc and would like to get married and have children(pre-aids)..

And of course Cliff's "We Don't Talk Anymore" is about their fall-out...

thats a load of crap!! with regards to cliff+freddie going with each other, i dont know where you hear sutch shit, thats how ugly rumours start!
as stated before; freddie wasnt a close friend of cliff's and dave clark asked freddie to be in the time musical with cliff(aparant cliff was'nt happy that freddie was getting 1st choice of the tracks and when he heard freddies version of my defence his jaw dropped to the floor and the whole song had to be changed for cliff to be able to sing the song as it was far to high etc,)
and most recent cliff was buzzing saying "at least i got to sing with freddie mercury how many people can say that"
i think some people think just b/c freddie worked or had a drink with someone he was having sex with them! strange thinking.

Didn't Cliff make loads of complimentary statements about Queen? Cliff (if he did see Freddie near the end)as a good Christian would have prayed for Freddie. NO I'm not going to start bible thumping either-but its certainly a bit more feasable than he was shagging him or something!!! They were both showbiz and as someone already remarked if your friends are ill you visit them.

i don't care about Cliff yes or no having been there...it's private matters, and we should be respecting that!
I am however, very happy to have been at the "give time for aids"gala, in the Dominion, on April 14th 1988...i have both the audience recording and the soundboard recording of Freddies performance, and his duet with Cliff is awesome! The grand finale of that night, was also the very last time freddie ever sung live to an audience, and therefor this recording os one of my most treasured ones....so sad....
he did perform after that one more time for the Barcelona project (8th of Oktober), but that was playback, and NOT sung live....and Freddie was ferocious after he got off-stage and went raging and screeming and cursing against the sound-technicians for screwing up the show (for him) by giving him a horrible sound-quality on stage. He was totally pissed off then!!!
Cliff was there too.....
