Death
According to Mercury's partner, Jim Hutton, Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in the spring of 1987. Mercury claimed to have tested negative in an interview published that year, and continued to deny that he had AIDS. Despite these denials, the British press continued to pursue the rampant rumors about Mercury's health. The rumors were likely fueled by Mercury's appearance in the last years of his life: his gaunt appearance in his last appearance on film, " These Are the Days of Our Lives ", suggested serious illness. On November 22 ,1991 , Mercury called Queen's manager Jim Beach over to his Kensington home, to discuss a public statement. The next day, November 23 , the following announcement was made to the press:

Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

Oh, lovely. Thanks! There is an interview on a dvd where he says something like: music is all i do, I don't know how to do anything else; I can't just sit and knit a blouse. Does anyone have that verbatim? And the one about Why kill the goose who laid the golden egg? Oh, dear. I always think AIDS killed the goose ...
