Also, I get occasional leukoplakia as well, but it is limited to my inner cheeks as a response to the trauma I
put my oral cavity to while grinding in my sleep. I never heard of the "hairy" version of it. If this happened in
1982, I would have probably known because Freddie would have asked for my opinion of it as I was by then
a practicing Nurse.

Noorie for God's sake WHO CARES about your uncles name and details?? I asked for PROOF. Photos. Let's see photos of him with Freddie in school. Otherwise your story is still just fiction. All you would have to do is go online and look up the signed photos of year books and things from Freddie's time in school and pick out one of those names. No I want PROOF. I don't give a rat's ass what his name is or where he came from or whatever else you spent your desperate time putting together to keep your lie going. I want photos. I can tell you my uncle was from England and type up a bullshit story too about how he was old chums with Paul McCartney. Unless I had proof everyone with half a brain would assume it's fake. Especially when I claim all the known facts about him at the time were wrong. You re trying to come off like you have some deep insight to Freddie because you're parsi. You're full of it. He called people dear and darling because he was gay. You're claiming your uncle went to school with him and that's not odd BUT only parsis call others dear and darling and it was really rare for other parsis to be in the school and that's why evert one at the school that it as strange? You can't even keep up with your lies. If he was so close to you parsis then why did he change his name? He was going by FREDDIE well before he left India. He was super parsi so he called everyone dear all his life but he also changed his name because he was just SO proud of being a parsi he needed to hide it? Come on. You weren't close to him and your family wasn't either. You don't have any deep insight. You're making stuff up to feel closer to him.

Hi noorie,
No reply necessary.
I wanted to say thank you once more for your Uncle's honest words on this thread. After relating your knowledge of the Parsi community and that of
your uncle's recent message.I was able to find many characteristics that you described in Freddie himself and it makes perfect sense.

Noorie,
Thank you for the info on ur culture!! As soon as I read that Freddie and his family were Parsi's and Zoroastrianism was their religion.....i immediately googled it and learned much about ur beautiful and peaceful ancient religion/culture!!
My favorite part was that Parsi's believe that Life and the GIFT of living was to be celebrated!! Sooo Beautiful, and it seems that that too was Freddie's philosophy!!!! THANK YOU for taking the time to 'teach' us about something so valuable and precious!!
(Sorry but I couldn't stomach reading the HOSTILE reply from u know who....reminded me too much of my morning commute w/all the angry road-rage drivers out there)

Thank-you everybody for your kindness.
I think that Thor has created this really kind and friendly thread on QZ. Attracting all the nicest people on QZ (with a couple of exceptions). And giving us so many fun insights into Freddie's life.
It is a good thread to visit. And share.
Thank you Thor. And now Lee as well.

I just got back from the from Home Depot and the gentleman that was helping me was built like a Greek god! I said 'My goodness aren't you a muscle man!' just joking with him and he said 'haha yes my name is pretty fitting. I'm Thor. You know like....with the hammer?'

L o l! I told him I have only ever known of one other gentleman with that name and he laughed and said people ask him if his name if real or not all the time! He said he goes by John now but his first name is Thor and of course I thought of you. Are all you thors muscle men then?? Lol

Thor & Lee -

I think a book by you and Lee would come with an independent and unique perspective from "typical blokes/friends" that do not have professional ties to the music industry. Your friendships with Freddie appear to be more relaxed when Freddie can get away from the music business and be with you guys for a few casual hours now and then.

Hi Squirrelly,
I was born with the name and was lanky during childhood. I started working out at age 16 and didn't stop until I was 49. Now at 62, I let my
muscles go. I figured enough was enough. I always get the same question as your Home Depot Thor "What's your real name" Some I have
to show my driver's license, but most always add "what a cool name". I give thanks to my parents for the name. I was born in a major thunder
and lightning storm in New York City and my Father came up with the name as a sign from the god's (he had been drinking with his Irish buddy
Jimmy Kelly) from across the street. I'm just glad it was not snowing!!!...LOL

Well thor don't forget I have seen your recent picture so I can attest mucles or not youre still as handsome as ever!

Did Freddie ever ask you for any workout advice? Did he ever express any desire to be buff himself? I heard an interview with him once where he talked about not having enough time to workout. Perhaps he just enjoyed sitting back and appreciating muscles on other men vs workingout himself? I know we talked about this before but it's been weeks!

Noorie....
I may be off...but I thought Fred's mom stated on a documentary that Freddie was born on the Parsi New Year's Day....Do Parsi's celebrate Christian holidays...ie Christmas, Easter??? Any "special days you celebrate that we might not know about???
I'd love to hear more about you and Paris customs!!!

Oh....and HAPPY CHANUKAH to All our Jewish friends@!!!

HaHa Squirrelly,
When Freddie moved into his New York City Condominium, he or more probably Phoebe, bought a beautiful sparkling exercise system.
He did not use it once and gave it to me when he moved out of New York. I stored it at my sister's house but her son kind of took it over
without my permission. Once while visiting I asked to look at it, but it was nowhere to be found because my nephew sold it off for heavier
equipment. I'll never forgive him!
