Thor, thank you so much for the little stories. The pussy in the basket was priceless. He was a riot!


I hope this story will be in the book

I want to explain something. I'm not angry at anyone and I'm not offended. I just was wrong understand about something, it's not important anymore.

Sometimes I say "I will no longer bother people here" but I don't really think so.

Still, I hope I was not too boring , hope I didn't insult anyone.
I will continue to read this interesting thread and maybe sometime will post.

FreddieDarling and FreddieNotFreddy - THANK YOU for the info on the cookbook! Peter (Phoebe) just posted about it being available again too! I am definitely getting a copy of that one!

I just finished Jim Hutton's book Mercury and Me and I'm feeling a bit fragile. I put off reading the end for a week. ugh so painful

NQAS,

Just like Blenkolove said, you will receive an email notification if someone sends you a private message. It will state: "New personal message at Queenzone.com". For some reason, ALL my notification emails are doubled.

@ Freddienotfreddy…The link you posted is the same one I used to order my Freddie cookbook back in 2017. I’m happy to hear it is up and running again.

@Freddiedarling...Glad your book arrived! I agree, Peter certainly conveys such warmth and respect when he talks about Freddie. If I attempt to make anything, it would be the "Cheesy Pastry Things". In terms of cooking skills, I am probably only one or two notches above Freddie...but I am willing to try!

I agree with Katydyd5...even if I don't actually make anything, the background info and little stories in the cookbook are great. This is actually one of my favorite books about Freddie, even though it is primarily a recipe book. Many of the recipes were served at parties and other celebrations Freddie had, which by the sound of it, were always joyous occasions! Now I know what I might have dined on if Freddie had invited me to his home for an evening of merriment. LOL

We are supposed to Skype with Phoebe tomorrow (Sun) at 10 am California time. Hope he doesn't forget, he is awfully busy these days.

Thor and Lee,

I hope you are able to connect with Peter. I'm sure I speak for many when I say I'd love to have him continue with his "Ask Phoebe" column when he gets the chance. Tell him there is a lot of new enthusiasm for his Freddie cookbook as well.

Ask him about Breakthru 2019. That is the North American Queen conference. This year it is being held in Cleveland, Ohio from August 2-4. Peter will be there...

Rainbow61,

Phoebe posted a new blog entry on January 16, 2019 . He acknowledged that he was very busy but said he was going to try to post more frequently again, so he is definitely continuing the blog.

Rainbow 61 and NotQuiteAShilling,

I've ordered my book. I'm not much of a cook,but i'm looking forward to the pictures and stories, as well as knowing some of the money goes to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.

Also, NotQuiteAShilling,

When I read Jim's book, I was not prepared for how sad the ending made me. I can not imagine how difficult it was for those close to him if I was so affected just by reading about it.

This is a link to an interview Brian and Roger did just a week after Freddie died. Brian refers to Phoebe, Jim, and Joe in a way that acknowledges all hey did for Freddie while still maintaining their privacy.

I would like to know what Peter thinks about Bohemian Rhapsody movie and his opinion about changing some of the facts in it.
