I was reading the old usenet archives and was reading some posts from January 1990 and it was a post outlining the upcoming Queen itenery. Pretty interesting to reafd people talking about brand new Queen music being released and speculating and not old concerts that's been partially leaked already but that's not my point. They mentioned a charity concert at Knebworth Queen was gonna perform at in the summer. I was wondering how serious that got because I've never heard of it even being discussed before. Who were some of the other acts who performed there at the charity show in the summer of '90? I know it's a very geeky thing to do (reading old posts) but it's interesting to read about events as they were actually happening, almost like travelling through time. On a down note, it seems that ABC news basically reported that Freddie had AIDS on Nov. 16th 1991 and he was stricken with double pneumonia. Some fans were speculating if he had AIDS or pneumonia, some though echoed a very valid point that it doesn't matter if he has either one or was hit by a bus, the point is it would be a tragedy if his genius was lost. Anyway the point, Knebworth '90 lol

The Knebworth show was (from memory) for all winners of the Silver Clef Award, relating to teh Nordorf Robbins Music Charity. The previous winners included Queen, and so there was specualtion at the time that they would play, but sadly didn't. The other acts were Page + Plant, Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Status Quo (I think) plus others. Not a bad show, but missing the mighty four - would have been a good send off!

Yeah, even if we didn't know at the time (obviously they would have known) it wou;d've been a cool way to "say goodbeye".
