I happen to think that TATDOOL revealed it.

(Please note that this has nothing to do with "when he knew". I only would like to know your opinion!)

I would say the video for Scandal for me....or Breakthru.

Breakthru was when he looked great, just old that's all.

Headlong showed him in pain at one point closing his eyes enduring it and TADTOOL the last second he looked pretty fucked up

Headlong and These Are The Days Of Our Lives. He looked a bit off in Scandal and I Want It All, but it wasn't that noticeable.

I remember seeing the Breakthru video... I had not the feeling I was watching an ill guy on a train... but then again I was twelve.
I think he looks damn pale on Scandal (although he used the same make-up in "A Kind of Magic".

Also, wasn't the video of Days of Our Lives released after Freddie's death?

a few of you have said he looks ill in I Want It All. i think, physically, hes not at all bad, and its only cause we know he was ill that we think it. but, and this may sound strange, but i think its something in his eyes that shows it most.

Great King Sam...

Absolutely..

Freddie's look in his eyes was different from 1987 on...

He looked completely different after 1986.

I remember when I saw the video for the Miracle, I told everyone in the room that something wasn't right.

He didn't look so sick, perhaps, but he looked so sad....almost like he was keeping a secret....which he was.

you're right, there is a sort of lonely sadness to them, but determination too.

and i know it sound weird, but sometimes, his movements were different. obviously in the latter days he was in a lot of pain and couldn't run around humping speakers and stuff, but even in the late 80's vids, it was the same Freddie moves, but just a little bit slower and smoother

It isn't an obsession. It's something you can't avoid when you're talking about queen

I think Freddie probably looked the worst on Nov 24th 1991.

When a picture appeared on the front page of The Sun in April 1991, showing freddie walking across the road after leaving Dr. Atkinson's surgery.

i know there were always constant rumours in the press, and coupled with Freddie's oddly changing appearance, no-one ever seems to talk about the way his voice changed.

its not that he lost the ability to sing, far from. its just its obvious that there was a difference in his voice. its hard to put it in words, but im sure you all know what i mean. just the way he sing. it wasnt as noticable on The Miracle as on Innuendo (and later Made In Hevaen), but it was clearly a noticeable change. anyone else agree?
