    what a sad nation we are, looking at a man on a screen, who was out of control, permissive, and not really a example for youth.

    Freddie is unique and immortal, my Darlings! A while ago... in 1977 -:) I was blessed to briefly meet Freddie in his Brussels hotel lobby. We shook hands, chatted and he kindly signed a few autographs. I'll never forgt this conversation and how kind and humble he was. The whole band was so approachable and very friendly. I'll soon post a few CZstate videos showing and describing the photos I made along the 14 live concerts I was fortunate attending in Belgium, London Hyde Park, Amsterdam and Munich. I missed the 15th concert (and last one Queen played in Belgium) as I was broke and had to sell my ticket. Food for 3 kids and wife had become my reality check -:) - Anyways, no regrets and I hope that you'll enjoy my future videos. It'll also display Queen fanclub magazines and a lot of press articles from the 70s and 80s. Bless ya!

    Freddie at live -aid, 1985! So I was not the only one, overwhelmed and wowed, at that time!! for I recognized that performance indeed he was the best of all of them, he brought down the house, he looked his best ever, sang his best, and he became my latest rock star crush. You can tell he did have something there in him for women, no matter what. Wonder what might have been had he lived! His endless energy in a way got him, he just could not settle down. Once again, no one compares these days, there won't be another FM!

    This 'soul' was given to the world at a time when there were so many worries and distractions that focused on Sadness and he gave his 'everything'. so be it he was in denial of his own fate but knew that the 'Show must go On'...Amen Freddie and may you R.I.P.

    theres something about Freddie...that sexy man with a voice that no other singer or person on this earth can perform...that moustache and a real interactive bond with the audienece, each gesture he makes that will be forever be marked in history...RIP Farrokh Bulsara, 1946-1991.

    As a teenager I don't think I ever knew anyone personally that was gay nor did the guys I hung with, aside from the occasional ribbing I don't think the subject ever came up as a topic of conversation and even though we all knew that Freddie Mercury was gay we didn't care because Queen rocked! And still rocks today.🙂

    I remember watching the Live Aid thing because I am officially old and was in high school when it was on TV. It was good fun and went on hour after hour and was kind of set up like the Olympics where the really good bands played prime time. So I'm not sure if I watched it live or not since it was coming from Britain but I did see it from the US. Queen was DEFINITELY the best and they had some really big names. I have no idea who now though lol. Couldn't stop looking at Queen though. Amazing memory.
