Probably some tabloid nonsense but what was it about? Can anybody explain?

...hope he´s not seriously injured!!! Fred, talk... no... better sing to us please... Please!!!!!


PS: Right...

...Fred almost got "killed" sitting in the back of his car while searching for a parking lot in Montreaux speeding at 5 mp/h... but he somehow survived!... ;-)

PPS: ...at least for two more years... until the british tabloids finaly killed him! :-)

Although I have never heard of this before, and therefore shouldn't comment at all, I make the following observations:

1. The paper in question was, is and probably always will be full of shit
2. This article appeared the week before The Miracle was released, and features the album artwork very prominently.

Well, given Freddie's liking for racing through London on the wrong side of the road for shits and giggles, I'm sure any cheap reporter could grab a headline like that from a regular sighting of the Poofmobile.


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