Hi all, here's the link to the segments containing a visibly uncomfortable Freddie co hosting Aussie TV show "Countdown", April 1985.

http://rapidshare.de/files/15213688/Freddie_on_Countdown.avi.html

The story goes that Countdown's host, Ian "Molly" Meldrum later conceded that the interview was a little strained due to him lecturing Freddie on his "promiscuity" prior to taping. Molly went on to spectacularly piss off long time friend Elton John not much later. This file contains all the broadcast material. There is a clip on "Magic Years" from this session, clearly recorded much earlier in the day, and displaying a much more relaxed and animated Freddie.

Molly Meldrum is an idiot. I've always thought so, and this anecdote only adds to a big pile of crap I've heard about him.

Thanks for the upload. :D

Thanks a lot. I really enjoy all the rare TV recordings. Freddie certainly seems a little on edge in these clips doesn't he?!

Thanks! Ive always wondered why Freddie looked a bit nervous and shifty during this one.

OK, please does anyone know why rapidshare has changed so now it wants me to download from net-mirror alpha/omega or something like that rather than just giving me the damn download.
It then says the download is invalid. I don't have a premium account so is this happening to anyone else?
Any help is really appreciated!
