Thor...How long will your knee surgery put you out of commission? I know that recovery times seem to be much faster nowadays compared to the past. I guess this means Lee will be going down to visit you instead! Will it be a while before you can drive again?

JB050...I was curious about what Freddie books/videos/CD's my local library system has (32 libraries covering 3 counties...mostly rural libraries) 1) Freddie Mercury, the greatest showman (video) 2) Somebody to Love: The Life, Death, and Legacy of Freddie Mercury(book) 3) Bohemian Rhapsody (movie) 4) Queen: Album by Album (book) 5) Freddie and Me: A Coming of Age Bohemian Rhapsody (comic book)

I was disheartened to learn they do not even have ONE Queen CD...how is that possible? My tax dollars are obviously not working the way they should! LOL

Rainbow,
The last knee replacement went very well and I could walk and drive after 3- 4 days post-op.
And yes, Lee is coming down to pick me up at the hospital, probably on the very next day,
Aug. 22nd..Thanks for asking.

Good luck with the surgery Thor! Both of my knees have been replaced and the second was even easier than the first. I wish the same for you.

Thor, Wish you luck, and a speedy recovery....and I mean a proper recovery to make sure there are no complications. I guess I’m saying don’t do too much to soon.

JB950...
I posted previously that after listening to a documentary on Freddie with Ear buds in prior to sleep....Freddie came to me in a dream. It was Very realistic, and while most dreams fade, I still vividly remember this most amazing moment!!
I did try again falling asleep with Ear buds and Freddie content playing....but did not have another Freddie meet up!!!....but I shall keep trying!

Thor, best of luck on your recovery from your knee surgery!! I've always heard knee were tougher to recover from than hips.
Happy Hump day people!!

This is Munich 1986, supposedly before the concert and after Freddie visits friends in Munich. Obviously NOT happy and not in a good mood at all. Listen to the first few seconds how he starts Lap of the Gods. It’s and audio, not a visual. I read in Queenlive.ca that night he found out friends were dying, and Winnie was giving him a hard time, that the mood of the concert was like this. But much better the next night they played. (2 nights in Munich)
Don’t know how to get a live link.

All in a days work....on the job stress I guess.

Lsgp, I had heard that clip before and must have read the same piece you did. I imagine there was a lot going on in his life and mind in 1986. I can't imagine the fear he was facing as he watched friends dying.

On another note, here's a clip where he's just angry, and with good reason. He was such a perfectionist this must have driven him nuts.

Then again, I just looked at it and when he turns back to the piano, is there a tiny smile???

By the way, hopefully that link is live. Galileo told us that all you have to do to create a live link is take out the "s" after http. Usually that works.

Katydyd5, Oops, he was quite angry. The whistling was annoying though. There was also feedback in the video Lsgp03 sent too. Technology isn’t always as perfect as we would want. Anything could go wrong at the wrong time. Thanks to both of you for the links. :)

Doughnut - I Hope you have a great vacation sounds amazing! Really great that you have that article and will be sharing it. You have great research skills. I’ve bern coming up empty. Thank you!!

Rainbow61- great idea to see what the library had. I’m impressed you got a very detailed inventory. :-) Pretty nice amount of items..funny about taxes.,, no CDs!?!? .. time to protest? Haha,,.. list of items is interesting. That’s so cool that you got the inventory. Would be fun to check here too. Will let you know.

Blenkolove- thank you, thank you, thank you for replying and refreshing. And, I was relieved I thought it was you, but wasn’t positive. I know exactly what you mean. Love when those dreams come, feel real, try to get it back. Thank you for sharing it.,, twice. I’m rooting for another one for you.

Lsgp and Katydyd. ——Thank you so much for those links and resources!! Queenlive.ca was not on my radar at all what a cool site. Can’t wait to spend some time there. (Another link tip— I stumbled on— if put link in notes on phone and select “done” will be live)

After reading what you both shared about some of the difficulties Around that time in the tour, I was curious to see what was in Jim’s book at that timeframe:

“The following Saturday, 21 June, Queen played the Maimaritgelände, in Mannheim, Germany. At about four on the Sunday morning I was at Garden Lodge when the phone rang. It was Freddie, screaming that he’d been locked in his room and couldn’t get out. He was depressed and wanted me to fly out immediately to be with him. When I got to the hotel Freddie seemed fine, if slightly exhausted. It was nice to feel wanted. After Berlin we went on to Munich. No sooner had we arrived at the hotel than Freddie flounced out. He’d been given a very plain, drab suite and it was not to his liking”.

Just hits home on top of what you both provided that sounds like a rough period.

Thanks again.

JB, I checked the Queen/Freddie inventory at my library too. All they had was the Bo Rhap movie and Ratty's book.

Thor, hope you are starting to get around now. Just curious, do they still give you the medical card that alerts security at airports that if you set off the metal detector it's because you have knee replacements? I carry both of my cards in case, but I've read they are no longer valid because they could be easily duplicated. I think they just wand or xray you now, but I do my traveling by car, and you fly fairly frequently so you'd know way more than me.

Katydyd—wow, really? That’s all? Now I’m really curious. I’ll join this research mission and will report back. :-))
