Speaking of Freddie's arm bracelet that he wore at Live Aid (which I have always loved). What was that anyhow, leather with silver studs...rockin!

How about the arm bracelet Freddie wears in the infamous Mick Rock "nude" photos of the band taken in the early 1970's. It's very exotic and well, sexy. Looks like an Egyptian type of thing, not sure if it's an ancient symbol or
2 intertwining snakes. It's silver and just adds to Freddie's "mystique" and aura.

Since Freddie always was one with a flair for fashion and trend setting new and different items, I like that he wore arm bracelets and one of a kind exotic ones at that (plus of course he could carry it off and they looked gorgeous on him!)

I'm sure working at a second hand shop was enormously beneficial to him.
He could pick up any old "crap" someone left/sold and make it his own and make it work.
I think those places are the best to go Halloween costume shopping at.
That is why I always wondered why Queen employed a designer.

I personally like the thing from BoRhap, but is also that the snake thing from the Mick Rock shot?


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

You've got me scratching my head about Bo Rap to se if Freddie is wearing an arm bracelet or the silver snake one, so I just watched it--and I see Freddie wearing to my count....5 silver circular wrist bracelets on his hand as he is playing the piano and holding the microphone. I don't see an arm bracelet but then he's wearing that stunning satin short waist jacket.

Also, the arm bracelet Freddie wears at Live Aid (I call it that) for lack of a better term, but it is in fact a leather arm ornament with silver studs on it, you can buy them for wearing around your neck too, like for lack of a better term, a necklace (some people call them a choker or a dog collar but I hate that). I've seen both in some boutiques where I live and yes they are classy boutiques that musicians and artists, doctors and lawyers shop in (No jokes from the peanut gallery!). (Way back in the day I had both myself, one for my wrist actually, and one for my neck (honest I only wore it on Halloween!)

Freddie moves/dances around the stage so much at Live At Wembley it's a little hard for me to see, but it looks just like in Bo Rap like he is wearing either one, or a few silver circular--wrist--bracelets.

You have to admit Freddie had great taste in jewelry. Simplicity, elegance, and class. He never wore too much or went overboard like today's rockers who pierce every part of their body. That's not attractive or sexy, it just looks...painful...ouch!

But the single yet exotic silver arm bracelet that Freddie wore in the Mick Rock "nude" photos, and the wrist bracelets he wore during many of his performances and videos, or his single leather silver studded arm ornament at Live Aid are sheer class and thus, classic Freddie.
