I just read it, New in the archives. Much longer and...surprisingly from R.S., KINDER, detailed, informative, and in depth than I ever would have thought from their likes.

Makes some Excellent points though about the rampant homophobia in rock. I know the article is from 1991, but not much has changed, in terms of people's attitudes unfortuneately and how rock stars, have an "image" they feel they must stick to to maintain their careers, especially here in the USA.

Thought it was quite kind in pointing out Freddie's need for privacy..and keeping the fact that he had AIDS, until the end, just that, private.

Here it is for those interested.
