dear Perk, go where I sent you, queenlive.ca. there are links to some professional photos of Freddie there from this Nashville concert.

Dreamer’s Ball and If You Can’t Beat Them are album tracks from Jazz. Easy to find on your streaming service and if you don’t have one I think every Queen album track is on youtube.


I have HEARD OF the songs just haven't really paid attention to them...I will find them on spotify as soon as I can get to my phone. I can't pull up the website you gave me at work...hence the boredom that is slowly killing me...lol if you link a pic to me that would be cool!

Queen tours more than anyone they have 35 concerts in 1978 and in 1980 they did 44 concerts....NO ONE does that many anymore....I think the most is like 20 geez another reason to love Freddie....along with the millions of others.

good quality? seriously? and yes babies the funniest is Deaky in the pink vest....he looks like he just came from a wedding.

That's "GOOD QUALITY" what is bad quality? Are you talking about my links or the pics that Galileo talks about? Those are good quality....really?

Perk—The problem is that GBS is also associated with the flu itself, as well as with the vaccine. I say “associated with” because I don’t know if a causal connection has been proven.

The images are all at gettyimages.ca, and I’m guessing that work won’t let you link to websites from other countries. I guess you’ll have to wait until you get home.

Also check out the Live Killers version of Dreamer’s Ball. I really like that one.

WELCOME! we are a big dysfunctional famly....Thor is basically the most patient person I've ever seen.....for him to do this forum for as long as he has....wow.....welcome to our fun...on the OLDEST coded site that exists lol.....

Don't be scared and Thor apparently has a ton of stuff to do on the book I am completely ignorant of the publishing process.....I thought you write it find a publisher and voila! I was apparently very very wrong!

I wanna take bets as to how long it will take before Lee's pics are leaked? I hate that about the internet....nothing is sacred....though I'm happy too....because I love me some Freddie....

Hi Villiers, bravo, what a great conversation with Thor and Lee! I have enjoyed it so much, the pace, the tone, the choice of topics - everything felt so great and emotional. Loved the visuals too, I can imagine how much time and effort it took to put them all together.
And Thor and Lee, it was so wonderful to see you both! Your stories are so amazing, and I am looking forward to seeing your book published!

Yes, Villiers, brava! Thank you, thank you for your hard work GRATIS on the IG live. Lee and Thor, it was great to see/hear you both. Lee, you are suave and debonair. You’ve got swag. Thor, I like your L dimple. I bet your facial expressions drew smiles from dying pediatric oncology patients and brightened their days in the hospital. I bet the parents adored you, too. IF you guys host a NYC book-signing, Lee, would you be prepared to belt out showtunes for us @ Marie’s? Do you take requests ahead of time, to allow you time to rehearse? Thor, have you seen “Rocketman” yet? Do you believe the movie accurately portrayed what you referred to as Elton John’s “blue period” as relayed to you by Freddie or was it underplayed in the movie?

It's a testament to you both that the thread is approaching 300 (OMG) pages!
