Re: Freddie Mercury - The Final Act

Wasn't quite expecting them to pull the "early draft of the movie" trick and reach his death halfway through, then spend WAY too long on the tribute concert. There was quite a lot of Freddie's story left out as a result of this so it feels odd. Huge props to them for telling the stories of ordinary...

Re: 30 Years

It feels a notch or two sadder this year. I gave Made in Heaven a listen yesterday and watched The Days of Our Lives documentary a watch. So sad to see the footage of Freddie working till he could no longer do so.

Re: Freddie Mercury - The Final Act

There was a programme on Channel 5 in the UK last night called Freddie Mercury In His Own Words. Nothing new naturally but some input from Tim Staffael.
