I believe it was a picture of Freddie, taken at Garden Lodge by Jim Hutton.

It can be seen in his book.

This is an extremely uplifting topic... these photos (which we've all seen, what, 300 to 800 times) ... are really a great way to get pumped up!

Trust me, the last thing the great Freddie Mercury would want is a bunch of teary eyed people hawking photos of him, months before death, saying "look how bad he looks"...or...."thats so sad".

Fred would want you to think of him in Houston in '77 or at Live Aid in '85...kickin ass.

Freddie wanted the people to remember him as the guy who choked on a piece of mango and whose last words were "pee pee"

Is that funny?


I guess that's an irony on true stories from books about Freddie which have been written by his friends....

What's your source for this information?

And regardless of dates, who says the last photos were leaked to the public?

I'm all in favour of being a history buff and contributing pieces to the puzzle, but self-proclaimed experts like yourself who spout out dates with no source to verify them aren't of any help to anyone.

Wasn't the video for These Are The Days Of Our Lives filmed after Spring of 1991?

Just curious... I thought it was.

haters of this thread footnote:

the seemingly irreverent, tasteless, over-the-top posts here are satire; irony. It may be human to be curious about an icon's tragedy, but it's less than human to need to intrude on someone else's personal, painful experience, uninvited.

I love Freddie, but i didn't know him...

and I have to, therefore, respond with respect.

can we please celebrate his LIFE instead of his death?

As much as I respect your point of view, this is a fan forum, and on a fan forum there are super nerdy mega fans who want to know every little piece of information - particularly about the months leading up to Mercury's death. If it can't be discussed here, then where?

I had always been led to believe that the last photos anywhere of Freddie were tabloid ones. The one where he poses in the garden (which is advertised as being the last he posed for) was in May 1991.

There were plenty of paparazzi snaps after that, were there not?

Cheers. Civility is always possible, as long as people don't fly off the handle from the very start, as often happens around here..

Well, they were published after that... I don't think any of them were given dates.
