Amidds I'll have a,look but Paul prenter was a bone of contention for the band during the time as Brian had since confirmed that Paul was telling radio stations in the us that Freddie wouldn't do interviews saying ' Freddie says f off '

He was also said to have been tel!ing Freddie he was better than the band and was encouraging him to leave them . Thankfully for us fans , his solo album didn't do so well and Freddie got a wake up call . The band apparently arranged a,meeting without paul knowing to discuss their future . Soon after Freddie let paul go .

doughnut...thanks for the book info. You and Katydyd convinced me...I ordered my copy of "A Life In His Own Words" today! Looks like a bunch of us might be getting our books around the same time. Regarding "Queen: As It Began", I really liked that book. I read it over a year and a half ago, so a slower reread is certainly in order! It's very thorough...as a fact-oriented person, I was happy with that amount of detail. I also like that it was authorized by the members of Queen.

JB050...The only Queen display I have is of my Funko-Pop dolls that I keep on my kitchen counter. I have seven of those...3 Freddies, 2 Brians, 1 Roger, and 1 John. I bought the extra Brian to paint his hair, but haven't found the right shade of "Brian May Gray" yet. I tried twice, but the colors didn't look right, so I had to wipe the paint off each time! I also have a few Queen magnets on my refrigerator. I have two Freddie Mercury mouse pads...one for home and the other for work! The goofiest item I have is a VERY tiny Freddie Lego doll that I keep next to my home computer.

Hi doughnut

If link doesn’t work, try going to google or YouTube and search Arte de Dave Santia. Should be first two that come up. Let me know if that doesn’t work.

Robe pics to follow. Not home now but will also take a full length.

Hi Katydyd!
I got the clocks from Amazon. (Pics to follow)
I’ve seen other really cool ones but these are great for now. Deciding where they will go. :)

Thanks for the book info guys! I just pre-ordered my copy too. Something to keep me going until Thor & Lee's book comes out lol.

Thor thanks so much for the update. Have a fantastic time with Lee before getting back to work work work. Back to work here too after a long hot 4 day weekend

Katy I sent you a PM - I'm not currently living in FLA, but I appreciate your concern.

NQS, Thanks for straightening me out . I knew you had a FL connection at some point!

JB, love the clocks. I'm always going through Amazon to see what FM items they have. That's the kind of thing I'll get for myself if someone gives me an Amazon gift card.

Thor,

Serious question.

Why are you collecting $6000 you collected from little teenage girls off of Go-Fund-Me if you can afford to go to Palm Canyon resort for $150 +/- a night?
.
Or are you using those funds for your "mini-vacay"!

If you have a publishing deal, why do you need any of those funds anyway?

That is what I have said from the start. Some random guys in Freddie's life bigging themselves up and tryiing to make a quick buck on the back of a dead guy. Sad!

^he's a retired career professional from the medical field. I'm pretty sure his income bracket was pretty good even then. Also to live in San Diego would be telling as well, as prices tend to be high.

That's some strange conclusion you'd come to and really reaching and presumptuous.

All the funding was explained already. It was even thoroughly discussed that getting a book published is a tricky business even when hiring a literary agent and making due travels, mails etc.

FFS, you suggest this was all a ruse for a mini vacation, how absurd does that sound?

Matt Z - yes...to all of that.

Also, the great thing about being an adult is the ability to make choices. You can choose to not believe/contribute and you are certainly entitled to your opinions. But, until you know what is in someone's heart or know them well enough to know what they are basing their
actions on, maybe the judging and criticism can be withheld?

JB050....Love the clocks. Do they play music when they strike on the hour....that would be a lot of fun!! The song should be "Time Waits For No One" :)

Brilliant JB thank you for sharing again for me .

Katy I get you . Funny how different we can be as I love to find out about queen as well as Freddie. I adore the bootlegs on YouTube , there are some fantastic ones .

Matt just ignore she spouts the same old same old and it's boring now .
