Didn't Queen form in 1971? Because there's pics of them celebrating 20 years together in 1990. Is it because Freddie might not have been around to celebrate the next year?


Yes. But Queen formed in 1970, without John though. And because they've received BRITS award in that day (pics you're talking about were taken on the party after BRITS ceremony)

Freddie reminds me of Jimmy fallon on this one

anyone else see that? Man, I really wish I could hear some new Freddie Mercury. I guess I wish I could hear some new Hendrix too. That's the mark of being a legend.

That's one of the worst photos I've seen of him. It's so sad.


I was trying not to state the obvious and just go about it like any other picture.

It's weird how those pics are from before "Headlong", but with AIDS you can change within hours.

That's February 1990?
Wasn't The Miracle video only done like 5 months before that?
That's really quite shocking, his appearence must have deteriorated so rapidly.

BRITS was on February 18th 1990

'The Miracle' was filmed on November 23rd 1989 (during the filming Freddie wrote letter for Fan Club's magazine by the way)

The picture looks so much better in color.

Freddie looks kindaz like the way he did on the miracle inner sleeve on this one. I guess it was all about the angle he was shot at then.

Second photo is from 1987, that's because he looks better... This is IVOR NOVELLO AWARD Ceremony for Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 1987!

lol, the site I got it from said it was from 1990 lol, I should've been more observant because while John is wearing the same suit as he did at the brits, his hair is a little less grey lol

The main thing that strikes me about these photos
is Roger, he looks so uncomfortable, it just looks as though he is thinking, these photos of Freddie are going to be splattered everywhere by tomorrow. On another thread someone is asking how close John was to Freddie, I think these photos really show Freddie putting on such a brave face,
and sooo much dignity, and Roger standing by him just ready for anyone having a pot shot at him.

Brian, equally on a couple of them looks very sad,
John looks as though he is trying to convince everyone with his smile that theres nothing to worry about.

All four of them must have had so much running through their heads that night, its just soo sad.


Is it happening?

Sad stuff really.
But what a guy, that he still bothered with this schmaltzy crap for so long - very professional I think. Even though he knew people'd be dissecting these photos afterwards.... he did a good thing.

I actually think that Freddie loooks great on some of these photos from the Brit Awards; but looks terrible on others. Perhaps it's the angle, lighting or his expression that causes such variation.
