i am from canada and on the anniversery of freddies death i berley ever hear about people talk about the magnificent man. Every one takes Lennon seriously ( maybe because he is quite possibly the bighgest rock-n-roll star ever) but in off the point, what im saying is does the UK have like tributes to the man or not??


- those days are all gone now but one thing is true, when i look and i find i still love you.

What do you expect?

An evening of Queen material replacing regular broadcasting on all channels every Nov 24?

Or is it just the fact that there has been a bit of coverage of the 25th anniversary of Lennon's death in the last week, and you've extrapolated that into "every year we get this Lennon stuff, what about Freddie?", failing to remember that there was no hoop=la on Lennon's 24th anniversary?

As for the rest of you "Freddie/John was better" - grow up. They were different, Freddie would not have succeeded without John laying the groundwork as part of the Beatles, and since Freddie was cremated, he is now a lot smaller...

I agree but i think that's an opinion, sadly i think Lennon will be better remembered than Freddie.

Do you ever get the feeling though, had Lennon not died, would he have been as big as he is now...?

yeah, i do get that feeling...but then it's the same with anything isn't it? If Anne Frank hadn't of died then her diary wouldn't be as big..actually on second thoughts she probably wouldn't have published it but you know what i mean.

In the UK I don't know. But Here in Malta they don't. Nobody speaks about him, and when I say "He's my Idol" They just laugh at me as if I were insane! As Deaky Boy said, even in here Lennon's dead is taken more seriously, and it ain't fair. Freddie was and still is the king's KING!!!!!
