Thanks Mika! I've watched that documentary twice I think and there was enough English that I could enjoy it. It's very nice to have a translation though!

Thank you, Mika!

You're an angel! And your multi linguistic talent puts me to shame!

Rudi is such a sweet guy, and clearly loved and respected Freddie.

Hi to everyone of QZ! Hope you all have a great day!

Hi Peeps,

If there are spectacle or sunglasses wearers interested in Freddie
looking after your specs, there is a lovely Freddie case available to buy. You can buy it from I Need That Gift via Amazon for £4.95 incl post, and I'm sure it must be available in other countries.

It's metal, so nice and strong and with a good hinge

It's also a perfect size for a Carry Case for Little Freddie's!

I'm attaching a screenshot of it (it appears to be a B&W shot of Freddie at Montreux festival 1984)

hey all, hope you are all well and have a good day/evening/morning....this timezone thing really throws me lol

Mika thank you so much, that was a happy and sad read. Rogers comment to Rudi really played on my mind. People around Freddie must have all been praying for a miracle....life sucks sometimes.

Tomorrow is hump day ....yipee

Hey thanks so much! So glad everyone enjoyed the live. I did level out the audio already on the version that's going up on YouTube and I find that with them now being at a higher volume, it's easier to tell who is speaking. The one that's up on my account is a hard to hear. I may add in some captions to point out each voice in the beginning as well. So glad that the audio fix seemed to clear up quite a bit but there are still some spotty parts I'll need to caption regardless.

Thanks all


Villiers2,
Could you let us know here when it’s up on YouTube? Thanks for all you do!

Little Jim finally arrived on a fight from China!

He and Little Freddie are so happy to be reunited, bless them!

Aren't they a sweet couple?

I love that since 2006, Queen has had the number 1 selling album of all time in the United Kingdom..."Queen Greatest Hits". I wish Freddie could have celebrated that accomplishment. Wouldn't he be "chuffed" as you say! :)

(I bet many people think the Beetles have the # 1 album.)

I think it's amazing that Freddie was able to carry on recording music with the band right up to 6 months before his death. That shows strength and determination to make music for us all to enjoy.
As he once said 'if he can put on smile on a sour face, even for 30 mins , then that made him happy

I love that more than 40 years after it was a hit, Bohemian Rhapsody is being played at Proms all across America and the kids are singing to it at the top of their lungs. A true masterpiece written by a brilliant man!

The fact that so many different people, including our own Thor and Lee, have described Freddie as kind, generous, thoughtful, and genuinely caring person. He was a rock star on stage, but a shy, good- hearted soul away from it.

Hi QZ Peeps!

Do you know what I wish?

I really, really wish the cinemas would wise up and show some Queen concerts! (I'm sure an arrangement could be made with Queen Productions re Royalties)

Can you imagine watching Rainbow '74, Odeon '75, Milton Keynes Bowl, Montreal, Nepstadion, Wembley etc etc etc on a BIG screen with their fabulous sound system ?! Listening to Queen during Bohemian Rhapsody film was great, imagine how much better an entire concert at the cinema would be! God I'd love that!

Honest opinions are most welcome!
