I read he wore a wedding band from Jim Hutton at home in the later years, and I think he showed a ring to an audience in his early pageboy haircut days asking, "Do you like it?" But otherwise?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

So, apart from the occasions when he wore a ring, did he wear a ring?

I'm guessing he didn't.

I believe the performace you were thinking of carbo was when he wore a glove that would have its fingertips flame up (no idea how it was accomplished, but looked really cool). If I remember, and it's been awhile since I saw the clip, he shows the audience the tips of his gloves and says "Do you like them? They're real diamonds. They were a gift from the devil himself. You don't believe me? They don't believe me!" They would then play Stone Cold Crazy and just before the title line, he'd flick his fingers out and they'd all be on fire. Awesome bit of stagecraft. In answer to your original question, he wore a few rings here and there, probably just trinkets. He was quite fond of jewelry in the early days. Had to have the glam to go with the rock, I guess.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

Thanks. I watched it again. Yes, a gold ring on his ring finger on his right hand. I asked the question originally because with all of Freddie's dazzling costumes and flash, I would have thought he'd have bling on each finger when performing. Rings would have probably clunked against his mic wand anyway. I'm glad he wasn't into earrings.
