I was watching the Magic Interviews on GVH2. Freddie was talking about what he might do in the future and he said: "you can be old and you might not have the physical fitness to run around on stage but you can still write songs...so one way or another the music will always be in my life."

While saying "you might not..." Freddie's face change into a serious one and you could also see some fear in his eyes...

It as been covered already, but I found it interesting because I think Freddie realize that the future might not be good and that the touring would end...

I think you read too much into the interview, and I think you do that with the benefit of hindsight.

Maybe, maybe not. I had a cancer scare recently and I have to say, the very thought of something being that wrong with your health changes the way you think, look and act. It's possible that Freddie felt his mortality at that moment, though I'm not sure how many of us would have noticed it if we didn't know he was ill.

I think that interview with Freddie is a clear insight to what was round the corner, he knew the Magic Tour would be his finale & that's why he was convinced to do it.. he might not get another chance

I wouldn't call it a fact, more like an opinion or a hypothesis.

Yes Ive noticed this too.

But it was not confirmed he had AIDS until AFTER the Magic Tour right?
So I believe he may have had an inkling, or it could just be the whole hindsight deal. I dont know for sure which.
But this will forever be the unsolved hypothesis i suppose.

People don't you understand that even today rock n' roll is young? The idea and concept of people over the age of 40 seemed absured to people at that time period. By all means you all reading too much into that. As soon as Freddie found out he wasn't invicible and trust me if he were worried in the first place he would have quit the drugs and screwing random people probably spreading what he had he probably wouldn't have been making such a statement in the interview. It was just at that point in time no one new that you didn't have to be a certain age to do certain musics which is moronic to think that way.

Interestingly enough i wonder what his facial expression was then to Mike Read asking the band about touring in 1989 during the Radio 1 interview.

Good Point. Then i suppose its the hindsight thing. But id still rather go and See a group of 40+ year old performing awesome music than the crap thats out now from newer acts.
So i dont find that absured.

Hi abe,

maybe the link in this thread http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=361942 is still working. Otherwise just make a request in the shared music section of this forum.

According to the posts in that thread, this interview is now an official release and so it can no longer be shared here. :-(

Yes, and that's why we keep having questions like these all the time. Where can I find, where can I download? For myself, in pre-internet times, imagine what an effort it was to even get hold of A Human Body or Stealin'. But I'm sure, Abe can get it from somebody privately. It has been official, out of print and whatever. But how else do you get these things today when you can't buy them anymore? eil.com?

There's no need for that attitude. In answer to the prescribed question, then I think Freddie like many gay people at that time was certainly worried about AIDS and perhaps had suspicions that he may have been ill.. he was certainly finding live material an ordeal- on ecan tell that from the Wembley DVD, but I think he could still have toured in '88 myself.

Why you always have the same negative annoying boring answers like Serry?

Toured in '88? No way. The strain of a full on tour would have killed him pretty quickly.

Now, hindsight being 20/20, they should have played for two or three nights over a week at Wembley either before or right after the Miracle release.

Well not a world tour but a small European one perhaps. What I'm saying is that he could definitely have done live stuff with Queen and would have been able to look decent in my view. I like your idea for The Miracle concerts- they would have been great one off specials.
