I can, as I saw it before April 91.

In the defence of Flix 2, does it not say that the isngle was released in April, and here's the video for it?

thx for this quick reply, but GFIX II use the word "recorded" at the townhouse studio in april 1991, however the sigle has been released the 15th of May 1991. that's why I doubt because I've seen any pictures of the recording with the following day: november 29-1990....

This is something that kind of boggled my mind too, because Freddie still looks semi-healthy in this video, versus TATDOOL video, where he looks like he's the living dead...

Well it was in black and white, with heavy make up and no beard. If you look at that paparattzi photo of him in August of 1991, you'll see he has a beard, and looks a lot like Freddie in Headlong, but with Kaposi Sarcoma.

The video was actually shot on November 23 or 25 1990. There is a VERY quick shot of the "clapboard" in one of the scenes and you can see the date and director's name on it. I think the clapboard is seen in one of the shots where the band was in the recording studio.

But there are three different days it was filmed. Threee different clothing styles. And Peter Freestone said two days. But there were three different clothing styles. There's two blue outfits on Freddie if you pay attention.

In the Spring 1991 fanclub mag there is a pic of the Headlong Vid shoot. It was recorded Nov/Dec 91 cos It was the first single from Innuendo in the States.

Hey, he used to be a man with a stick in his hand
Hoop diddy diddy, hoop diddy doo
She used to be a woman with a hotdog stand
Hoop diddy diddy, hoop diddy doo... sorry, I love that song! Anyway, I'm assuming that the video shoot was November '90 because Freddie looked semi-skinny then before the May 31st, '91 video shoot of "These Are The Days Of Our Lives." in the video for "Headlong", I love how Brian tried to headbang like a metal fan.

Video was shown for the first time at January of 1991. Innuendo EPK (with snippets from this video) was shown long before April of 1991. End of discussion.

I had a look at the video yesterday. For me, the performance sequences look too energetic to be filmed in April '91. Fred is able to do quite a lot on that video, he covers quite a lot of ground and moves in an energetic fashion. According to Peter Freestone by April/may he could barely walk but then again I'd question that because only 2 months earlier he appeared mobile on IGSM. Ultimately, it's hard to compare becasue one is in monotone and the other colour, one bearded, one clean shaven.

All in all, the thing I find most fascinating is that Fred is more energetic on Headlong than IWIA, depsite being in far better shape on the latter one!
