I LOOOOOOVE this video....

My favorite part is when their all hanging in this locker room looking thing, I cant figure what it is, can someone help me, I have no idea what it is...its during the part where they say the first: Hoop ditty ditty, Hoop ditty do!!!

Shelves?

That part I thought looked like 4 coffins stacked on top of each other. I think they all knew that Freddie would die soon, so that scene is a little morbid to me.

No, not literal coffins. They were shelves.

But figuratively, it was like 4 coffins signifying the death of Queen.

The entire album Innuendo is about saying goodbye, and death, and finale.

This is the Metropolis studios in London, where the album was recorded and the video was shot.
It used to be part of the fan club tour of London, and you could go in and get your photos took, I seem to remember some in the fan club magazine.

Of course...Brian, Roger and John knew it since The Miracle because Freddie didnt want to tour, Brian also said it was one of the reason that he got very depressed (also his ended marriage of course) during the late eighties...

Yeah, I think they were shelves. I haven't seen that video in so long. I'll have to break out my DVD's.

Of course. Did you look at the video? Does Freddie look healthy there?

At that time, I'm sure the rest of the band knew Freddie was HIV positive and had AIDS. In fact, they probably knew of Freddie's disease on the Miracle album.

Now, whether or not that scene was supposed to have symbolic meaning or not is debatable. To me, it looks like 4 coffins stacked on top of one another, symbolizing the death of Queen.

If thats true, thats really deep...I always just thought it meant they were going headlong...well, the song has a sexual meaning, if you just listen to the lyrics...lol, talking about hotdog stands, and sticks in his hands...lol

yes, the song is written by Brian and Innuendo is not all about saying goodbye. These Are The Days en The Show Must Go On are, the rest isnt I think. 100% sure that the band knew about Freddie's illness during The Miracle.

By the way, at the time they recorded this Headlong video, in dec 1990, they already recorded the whole Innuendo album. When you read the stories of Brian on his soapbox last month about recording The Show Must Go On, they knew that Freddie was in a terrible shape. http://www.brianmay.com/brian/brianssb/brianssbmar06a.html#10
A very impressive story...

I always get sad about Freddie dealt with the situation. In these days its possible to stay alive with HIV and i wished that he was here so much...

I doubt they thought that much about it. If you can get John Edwards to contact Freddie he'll probably tell you how ridiculous that is.
