It is, but thats what happens. How many close friends from say elementary or high school do you think will be your frend in 20 years?

that's the thing, it only works if both people are willing to make the effort. i'm still close friends with a girl i met when we were 5, and we haven't seen each other in four years...so it's definitely possible. yes, sometimes people just grow apart...but i think this guy was right when he said that freddie had moved on, emotionally. and from his interviews, you can tell that he wanted to just leave everything about his childhood in the past. including friends.


Thats 100% true. Freddie just didnt want it. I can see his point in some ways, but its still sad.

Maybe that's why they later called him Bucky. We all thought it was because of his teeth, maybe it was just short for Buckwheat. Though, the 'why' of Buckwheat remains unanswered...
