I few years ago, i remember hearing something about that the members of bananarama were really devestated when freddie passed away, and that they wanted to perform at the tribute concert but they werent able to, can someone tell me more about this if this is true? I know that Madonna wanted to play at the tribute concert and was really insistant on playing but that brian, roger and john denyed her request to perform.

Any chance of a link to any proof of the Madonna allegation?

I don't remember hearing the Bananarama rumour either, and would suggest you return to the source of you" hearing somewhere"

The story i heard was that Maddona couldn`t be there because she was touring (like U2).
Knowing Queen, there`s no way they would say no to someone that would want to participate on the event, and certainly not to Maddona, because that was a concert for AIDS awarness.

Take care

I don't believe for a second that Lisa Stanfield or Paul Young would be allowed to perform but Madonna was denied the opportunity. Not that I'm a Madonna fan, I actually despise her music but it seems if they wanted to include some pop stars they would've included arguably the biggest female pop star of all time.

i passed the madonna-question on to brian at brianmay.com and his answer was something like

"no, the story about madonna is not true. we've actually invited her for a couple of things, and though she was keen to come, wasn't able for one reason or another."

i'm pretty sure this statement could still be found in the archives at brianmay.com. must have been in late 2003/early 2004.

Where was Michael jackson? That was before the cfirst kid accused him of dangling his dally so I don't know why he couldn't make time if him and Freddie where friends.

Freddie and Michael weren't friends since Michael found out Freddie used coke

That's a fucked up set of values..

Jesus Juice, porn, sleeping with children, anthropomorphizing a chimp, an unhealthy obsession with changing the appearance = all good

Cocaine = bad
