There are a number of Queen biographies out there. Many feature poorly written, speculative or just plain false information. I picked up a couple of these myself in the mid-90s.

I was just revisiting "The Complete Guide to the Music of Queen" (Omnibus Press, 1994) by a Peter K. Hogan and the following passage struck me as not only poorly written, but conjures up of some sort of horror movie. I know how much some of you love dwelling on details of Freddie's death, so you should enjoy this:

First Freddie's statement that he has AIDS is reprinted, then: "A little over 24 hours after issuing this statement, Freddie Mercury died. The following day, Dr. Gordon Atkinson (Freddie's GP) announced grimly that Freddie had "slipped back a little bit today." Freddie's parents Bommi and Jer came to visit, and made their farewells."

So apparently, a day after dying, Freddie came back from the dead and received visitors! Discuss amongst yourselves...

No that can happen...Your pulse can get so low that it cant be made out, Then you get pronounced dead, My friend at work a few days ago his nan was in hospital really ill and they couldnt do anything for her to they got all the family around her and they switched off her life support machine, then she started coming round..and in the next 24 hours or so she was talking slightly and communicating anyway she could in her condiction, then she passed over the following morning...Honest to god!
So it may of happened...Who knows...!!!

Well, of course he's alive. He's on a deserted island with Elvis awaiting their comeback!

No.
I think it's more like he's relaxing in a peaceful cottage in the Alps, avoiding most human contact, and waiting for some miracle treatment to save him.

Hey, I miss him too.
This wasn't meant as a joke, just letting one of my many neuroses get onto the board.
Just don't expect me to be one of these "RIP FREDDIE MERCURY 1991" sentimentalists.

so I should suppose the ashes in his urn came from tons of marlboro lights smoked when reading on the newspapers about his death?

If only it could be true.....


take heed that yonder dog! Look when he fawns he bites, and when he bites his venom teeth will rankle to death

LMAO!

Yeah, last I heard Freddie, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Elvis all had plastic surgery, took their millions and invested in some little company called Microsoft.

They are all now living on the French Riviera, as high rollers, with wine and women, and living large. They just held a party for Hunter S. Thompson too (who staged his suicide), he's with them too partying hard!
