i think common sense would dictate that freddie prepared that speech months before hand - as no-one could really forecast when with that illness - the end would be certain, it would be literally a few hours' notice - so they made most of the final arrangements a long time before hand
much like anyone with a terminal illness woudl get their affairs in order

Yeah right. One day before dying, Freddie would have appeared on MTV. Great common sense.

Freddie didn't appear, it was read to fans.


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends.

To all the people who said Common Sense, thanks for the imput. The sarcasm and useless post really helped answering my question about idiots on this board. I was told that he had made a speech on MTV and thats why i was confirming it. So yea, thanks for the imput. And to all who actually answered and didnt give useless and unfriendly at best answers, thanks.

Everyone seems to have imput but no answers. What im looking for now, thanks to all of you who have clarified it, is a transcript atleast of the final speech that was made on Freddie's behalf. Dont bother crticzing me unless you have an answer. If you know where to find this speech, ill give you a list of all my mothers traits that can be made fun of so you have actual material. Thanks in advance.

"Following enormous conjecture in the press, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have Aids. I felt it correct to keep this information private in order to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has now come for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth, and I hope everyone will join me, my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease."
That's the statement. It was read to the press by Roxy Meade in front of Garden Lodge on November 23rd, 1991.

You'll find that they performed UP and CLTCL on September 25th 1982.
