I wonder what kinds of things you people plan to do in order to honor Freddie this Nov 24th? Anyone have any exciting plans?

I will be playing every queen album all day tomorrow in honour of the late great freddie mercury, i can't believe it's been 14 years now since he's died.

I will also be having a 2 minute silence at 6.58pm or thereabout to remember him.

Cheers all.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

Probably just mention it to my family, maybe have a toast. Queen is bound to be playing.

I will carry on with my life but I will certainly take some time off, for Freddie. I will certainly listen to A Winter's Tale, his final message of hope and joy.

Tears may come to my eyes, but I don't see it as a particularly sad day. It's what he had to suffer that was tragic. That is what makes me cry when I think about it. On that day he was freed from suffering. And now, he is alive more than he ever was. Gosh he's all around us! He's bursting withenergy, and rocking more than he did at Wembly!! He is not gone. He is still there, happier and free from pain.
He left too soon...That's for sure. If we could bring him back....but we can't. We can only remember him, tomorrow like on every other day, and know he's OK.

its_a_hard_life,
it's so cool you're going there! Yes please bring him my love too...Though I know the place where we are doesn't really matter...but I know it has a very big symbolic meaning.
Thanks

Dang, now I remember I'll be sitting in a studio all alone. *sob* I'll have to take a few Queen cd's with me to listen to on the breaks.

One of the teachers is a Queen fan. Maybe we'll have a tipple and remember that Fred guy.

Peace,
Adam.

What a terrible ''anniversary''. I'll always remember 11/24/91, and what a sad Thanksgiving that was for me and how I cried.

I'll play my Queen CD's. In memorium Freddie....

That 'Fred' guy? He preferred Freddie! :P

Actually... as it's now past midnight, in Perth it's already 24th November.

RIP Freddie. I still think the guy could've walked on water if he'd just tried.

After studying at the university I will go home and listen to all Queen and Freddie's songs I have currently available.
1 of you mentioned Freddie passed away at 6.58 so I will stop listening for 2 minutes and stay in silence in memory of King Freddie the Greatest!
Next I will continue listening to their magic and finish with These are the days of our lives.

RiP,Freddie!
We love you!
