Hello!!.I was just wondering... Do you know where do the earnings from Freddie's songs(Queen and non Queen) go to?. Do they go to the rest of band members, charity organizations, family??
What did he decided about that??
Thank you all.:).

Freddie’s royalties go to the Freddie mercury estate and passed on to who every Freddie left the estate to, work in the same way as Elvis’s royalties go the to the estate

Thanks, I thought that maybe some of that money would go also to some foundation or charity organization.:)

I would guess that some goes to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.

Well, I'm sure his mother(if she still lives) and sister also. And Hutton?. Anyway I would be very happy if some of the money really goes to the mercury trust:)

Yes, he was lol

But not in Freddie`s testament (I always wondered why Freddie left Jim Hutton so little?)



Poor guy, but maybe Freddie was not so in love with him as he appeared to be...;)anyway at least he did not "leave" him the virus...did he?
