Ok Made in Heaven came out in 1995 a few years after Freddie died so who's the guy on the cover posing as Freddie?

It is a statue of Freddie - not an imposter. Besides, it is possible that it could have been an old photograph - did you ever think of that?

I have a question about this album too...

Did they title the album "Made in Heaven" because they knew that he was going to pass away? Didnt he make this song before he knew about having the AIDS virus, like back in 86 or someting?

I really, really find that haunting that he would title a song that on his album, before he even knew that he was sick...the same thing with Bo-Rap...the lyrics are really haunting: too late my time has come, feel shivers down my spine, body aching all the time...man, really haunting!!!

Too much of a coincidence!!

Wasn't April Lady about AIDS? Even though Freddie didn't write it?

Re MIH, Made in heaven is a Freddie track from Mr. Bad Guy, Freddie's solo album from 1985. This was later reworked by Queen and used as the album title. Freddie had been dead a few years before the remainder of the band went back in the studio to make the final album.


The version of the song Made In Heaven on Mr. Bad Guy, solo Freddie, is my favorite of the two versions - oh, those exquisite high notes of his. It kills me every time. The theme is ethereal, delicate, celestial, heavenly, not of this world, spiritual. On MIH album the rest of the band dramatizes it with unnecesary blast and heaviness.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
