Just some interesting facts about what freddie spent some of his fortune on :
the prices have been updated with inflation for today
perfume for every woman he knew - £13,500 per bottle
£135,000 on entertainment at a party
one party cost - £540,000
including £81,000 spent on champagne and £65,000 of cocaine at the same party
on one shopping trip - £67,500 on antiques
a 144 piece dinner set with each serving plate costing £54,000 so for the 12 plates thats £648,000!
garden lodge - around £5million on today's prices, paid in cash!
and he bought houses worth £10m 4 10 of his friends
his estate is valued at roughly £80m ($144m)
in dollars that is $24,300 on perfume
$243,000 on entertainment
1 party - $972,000
champagne - $145,800
cocaine - $117,000
dinner plate - $97,200
set of dinner plates - $1,166,400
garden lodge - $9m
houses for friends - $18m

Now that is some SERIOUS spending!

So he spent £100k on cocaine did he? I reckon you'd need to double that to find his annual spend.

How can you POSSIBLY believe this kind of rubbish?

I say we QZers should throw a Freddie-inspired party in his honor.
Who will finance it? Sign up below ;)

Since I suggested the idea, I don't have to pay for anything :P


I'll throw in a hundred, plus a bag of weed.

Some of this information must have come from the Liquid Assets program.

Let's ask Brian May to pay for the party. It would be his act of gratitude to us for being his fans. I'm sure he will like the idea. What do you think? PS. We can invite him too - what the hell!

$117,000 worth of cocaine?

Pablo Escobar must have been really sad the day Freddie died for losing one of his greatest customers.
