I was just thinking...


Do you guys think that his career (with and apart from Queen) would have flourished, or diminished..do you guys think that he might have gotten acting roles in movies, more solo projects, producing other artist, may have even have gotten married to his partner the way that Elton John just did? Do you guys think that Freddie would be still touring with Queen the way Mick Jagger is still touring with the stones now?


discuss....

I would be happy Freddie just being alive and healthy but if he was still alive my guess is he would be still making music and touring. Music was his passion they all enjoy it, so why not.

I agree with you...

I know me personally, (and I know people say this all the time, but I'm telling the truth) I could seriously care less about money and fame, if anything, I heard that brings more stress in your life...as long as I'm alive, healthy, have somewhat of a fullfilling career in whatever I'm doing, and I'm loved and cared for, thats all that matters to me...

I dont know how the members, especially Freddie, could have handled the stress of traveling all the time, touring, recording, etc(I get homesick very easily)...I give them props...I know me, I'm a pretty shy person...I like my privacy...I couldnt handle anyone being all up in face, taking pictures...trying to get all in my business... that would drive me crazy!!!
Then the toll it can take on your relationships w/Family, spouses, etc...

Freddie would be the producer of the band 'the darkness' lol!...

Freddie thought old people performing on stage was rediculous. He'd be a song writer and a producer if he was alive nowadays.

I dont think they would tour and make albums one after the other, i think they would take breaks maybe long breaks like 2-3 years. I wonder to if they would each go and make another solo album even while being in Queen.

In I think a 1986 interview from the Greatest Hits DVD, he said he'd produce music or something like that when he gets older.

if freddie was alive:

-queenzone and another milion web sites, freddie related would not exist.
-a lot of queen fans would have seen queen as "we are the champions" and "show must go on" and nothing more...freddie would have been that "fag" ( :/ ) from that queen band and nothing more.
- freddie was not a legend ( the fact that he died so tragic and fighting to the end, refusing to give up and pull out 2(3) brilliant albums made him immortal- remember after his death how many fans appear ...as mushrooms after the rain)

etc etc

1) he would have given us more of that incredible voice of his, i know that
2)the american tour thats still in progress would be completely sold out and the talk of the US
3)freddie did not became famous just because he died....he became famous for showing extreme will power throughout his whole life
4)freddie was a legend, stryder, im guessing u havent watched or listened to any of his work or Queen's


etc etc etc......we miss u freddie!

There's two ways to look at it;
1) If he never took ill, and kept living a hedonistic lifestyle he probably would have ended up a shadow of his former self. His song writing would of continued to suffer, but his stage presence would've been great as always-even as his vocals deteriorated. (I always wondered if that was why he ended up settling down with Jim Hutton-because of his illness). I thought his singing and song writing improved on Miracle, Innuendo and Heaven, after he stopped drugs.
2) If he was ill, but healthy enough (i.e. Magic Johnson), I'm sure he would have been happy to record, produce etc., just not tour. Also, I agree that he would not want to be sixty and "throwing his carcass around"-but I bet he would still get the itch from time to time to get out there and hold court to a mass of loyal punters-it was a part of him as essentail as oxygen.

It would be really great if this generation was able to be exposed to Freddie's voice and talent.

I think I remember reading something along the lines of it or the same idea in the biography by Peter Freestone.

You'll have to ask Lady Moonshinedown, she's the only person with telepathic connections to the dead.

Nah, I think he'd still have his hair. I would also be his receptionist.

He would have his own James Bond like series

"Name's Mercury love, Freddie Mercury"

or

"Freddie Mercury, musical prostitute at your service!"

I dont think a pen shaped gun would suit him. More like a microphone stand that folds into a rifle.
