after seeing all these british rock stars recieving knighthood from the Queen,(i.e. Elton John, Mick Jagger, Roger Daltrey), i often ponder the thought of Mr. Mercury becoming a knight of the British Empire if he were still alive. Do you think that he would accept?? Tell me what you think.... =)


Baby you've been had......

I think he would of loved that, especially meeting royalty. He would damn well deserve it!

Dame Freddie...has a nice ring to it.
I think he'd come out of hiding to accept the award.


HE ROCKS US STILL.

He wasn't born in Britain, so I don't think he could be knighted. I could be wrong, I just don't think it's allowed. Anyway, I doubt if he'd accept it. I wouldn't, due to my principles. Although Sir Munchsack DOES have a nice ring to it...


This can't end well.

Hey Bob Geldof was knighted and he's IRISH! Born and raised in Ireland. When he was born Ireland had been long free from the British Empire.


Bob Geldof wasn't knighted as such, he was just given the equivalent available for foreigners. Bill Clinton also got it. Neither can legitimately call themselves "Sir".

However, Freddie, in spite of his birthplace travelled on a British passport, was a British citizen, and COULD in fact have been knighted, if only he hadn't died 6 years before the laughable Labour government came to power and started a whole new level of "cult of personality" and started cheapening the whole honours system by chucking them at every minor celebrity...

Lots of British citizens are born abroad, Gilbraltar, Singapore & Germany are very common locations.

Odd question. I see nothing even vaguely right wing in any of what I wrote. In fact it all seems entirely factual to me.

And no, I'm not a Tory. I'm a Cynic.

I'm from the USA, and I have no idea what the point of being knighted is. Could anybody fill me in? What do you have to do? What does it entail to be knighted? help!


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends...

it's the most stupid thing in the world..if you British simply MUST have this stupid knighting system - go ahead. But don't give it to any mere celebrity even if it is Brian (or Freddie as discussed here). I love em both and think they're wonderful musicians and amazing people but in no way do I think they should be knighted.

Actually, I don't really care, I mean, if it makes them happy go right ahead but it's only a name. Just a 'sir' before your name, what's the point?



Hey, hey, hey, we don't all like it. I think it sucks. It should be for people who have achieved great things, if it exists at all. IMO, Geldof should have it and probably Freddie and Brian. But not just for everyone and his brother who more than 100 people have heard of and are minor celebrities.

I'm surprised he wasn't knighted when he was alive.
