It's actually something newer fans want to know. The curiousity of the last days, is something people can't resist. If there was a photo of Freddie on the day he recorded the vocals to Mother Love, you would look at it, and save the photo to your computer.

I guess you might call it morbid curiousity.
Dying is a very intense personal experience and I doubt Freddie would want anyone to see a picture.
I would choose to be respectful but I'm sure we've all been rubber-neckers when there's been a traffic accident.

The photo of Freddie on his death bed is in the Peter Freestone biography. It was taken in August 91 (according to PF anyway)

I have to agree that it's a little too morbid to want to see that photo. I prefer to wish to remember Frddie as a larger-than-life entertainer. If I were to see a photo of him as he must have appeared near the end, well it's an image I can do without. I mean, do you also want to a picture of Lady Di that horrible night? How about Bob Marley? Maybe John Bonham? Perhaps someday some insensative idiot will want to see a picture of you at your worst, on the slab and then you'll understand.

I used to get offended at this sort of thing. It don't bother me anymore. I don't think it's nice - but at the same time, if the guy wants to look at some cadavers, let 'em.

Though I might point out that I'm pretty sure no such photo exists. There is no deathbed photo of him, because it just doesn't make sense. They stopped taking photos of him because he didn't want them taken anymore, obviously. That last one of him in the garden is a great way to finish: he's able to stand and enjoy his garden and his cats. Why the fuck would one say to Jim Hutton: "Hey, I'm bored - take a photo of me wasting away in my bed!"

So yeah - look at it this way. There are a couple of very ill looking photos of Freddie in this site (in the gallery). What's one more? Either band together to have the said photos taken down, or leave the guy alone.

There is one from AUg/91 on page 12 of freddies pictures in the picture gallery. I dont think theres anything wrong with wanting to see what he looked like those last months.

If you're a fan of Queen, listen to the music. If you're a ghoulish obsessive, look at photos of men dying.

Barn - you said try 81.
I've been a Queen fan 31 years and know my stuff, I was only trying to help someone with a query.
The query was "There's a photo of Freddie on his death bed" and according to the photo the captions says "The last photo of Freddie, August 91"

I don't see the harm. Ok. It's on the nose and not very pleasant. But - he's dead. He's either in oblivion, and therefore thinks nothing about anything because he doesn't exist, or - he's in some kind of afterlife and far too busy being there to give a flying flip about whether or not some dude on the internet wants to see him in a state of poor health.

At the time, this sort of concern was relevant. A man's privacy was being assaulted when he should've been allowed to die in peace. But that struggle is over, the guy has been dead for fourteen years. It does not matter anymore.

August 1991... I regrettably came across that one on the BBC site. Not nice. Still could've been worse though. He could've been mooning the camera.

I dont see it as a problem. I had the same curiosity. I wanted to know everything about him up to the point where he died, and i would look at every picture of him. If he wanted a picture of him getting a autopsy, that would be a little sick, but the last picture of Freddie Mercury is a treasured item. I would kill to own it. Its history, the last time the most brilliant man ever was captured for the world to see.

Thank you, you made my point very clear.
