Because Paul smelt like pea soup then, and it took until '05 for Brian and Roger to clean him up

I think Freddie's biggest influence was Mercury himself. Then he should've been there too...


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I don't know much about Aretha, but can assure you Jimi was not able to go. He probably couldn't even be invited.

Couldn't really play or sing. Just like Jimi.

Neither were Chopin, Noel Coward or the Marx Brothers. Silly ol' cunts!

....BECAUSE...
Roger and Brian extremely exaggerated the truth about Paul Rodgers being a hero of Freddie's. Even Paul Rodgers himself admitted that many years ago, they bumped into each other at a Management office, and Freddie barely acknowledged Paul. In all interviews with Freddie and Peter Freestone and his other friends, there was NO mention of Paul Rodgers!!
Jimi Hendrix-YES...Montserrat Caballe-Yes...
Paul Rodgers...NO!!
I love Roger and Brian, but they are WRONG!!!
I don't believe them for a second!

Long story short:

Paul had an exam that day in Mr Hand's US History class. Mr Hand wouldn't let him make up the exam, and Paul would have failed the class, and would have had to repeat the 11th grade.

As an aside, this was the same day that Jeff Spiccoli had Mr Pizza Guy deliver a pizza in class. It was awesome. Totally awesome.



Ready Freddie?

She already sung Freddie's favourite aria at his funeral.

You guys are all wrong. Paul Rodgers was actually Freddie's favourite SUPERhero. He used to always dress up as him. Watch the video to "I Want To Break Free" if you don't believe me. Yep, that's (Freddie as) Paul Rodgers.
