Someone at a music shop told me that Freddie actually killed himself by hanging. I told her that she was crazy, really crazy.

Nope. Absolutely no basis for such a story by any account.

End of discussion.

In a way he did kill himself. Because he was too ill for making music he stopped taking his medicines.

But on the other hand, if he kept on taking his medicines it was just postponing his death for a short time, maybe a week, maybe a month, but he certaintly wouldn't have a good life anymore

She´s confusing Freddie with Michael Hutchence from INXS.

Take care

Taking the medication was what was keeping him alive. If he continued doing so he would have lived a couple of years longer but it would have prolonged the pain he was going through.

In a way Freddie killed himself by having lots of unprotected sex and getting AIDS. Sad but true

I really doubt Freddie would've lived longer than 3 months when he kept taking his medicines. If you listen to the stories about Freddie recording stuff for Made in Heaven a few weeks for his death. He came in the studio in a wheelchair and sang one line and then go home again. This is not someone who still had years to come

I know I'll probably get hanged for saying this, but, I agree too on what you said.

In a manner of speaking by not being careful he did end his life.

Maybe the person tried to say he was well hung, and basically killed himself because of it...

You should feel wrong for having that view.

Of course that's how he contracted HIV. He accepted that he had been reckless and put himself at risk, and he paid the price. That is probably part of the reason why he never complained to anyone about his illness - he didn't think he had the right to. Kind of tells you of what kind of man he was underneath all the bravado etc.

Some might lambast him for his hedonism, but you can't really hold it against him when he accepted his fate and faced it so bravely. And strove to think of others until the end. Quite remarkable really.

Tsc, tsc. No one should feel wrong for their honest views on the matter. I agree, he was incredibly brave handling the situation with such a mature attitude, but technically speaking, what he did was what ended his life.
