Freddie Mercuri: "I have AIDS! I have to announce"
"Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue." - Freddie Mercury
And then in the 24th(16 years ago tomorrow)he dies.
To be honest,speculation had been rife for at least a couple of years anyway.
I will always remember Freddie for the flamboyant brilliant performer and singer he really was.
There can be only one!!!
later years there was less apperance of freddie in the videos,even do the offical version is that the miracle video was to use kids for the vid,more likely he was too ill to appear in full video,good video never the less,same went for the show must go on.
"OH MY F*CKING GOD!!! Our Freddie is...is...dead =((((((. WHY???? WHY HE ?? He has just passed away some hours ago :(. I was crying when I heard that on TV =((. Rest In Peace Freddie!!! :("
"I'm gonna attend his funeral if I can"

Laugh Out Loud?
is anyone surprised that I don't like these threads? Not only is it unnecessarily morbid and focussed on the wrong date (2 and a half months late), but the majority of participants are imbeciles who think greeting card poetry or twee pictures of sky pass as tribute.
Make your tributes (if you must have them) privately.
Wow, 16 years! Amazing how fast it flys by. I can't believe I forgot about it! Just returned from my honeymoon a week before. I was so caught up in all of that plus the Thanksgiving holiday I missed it. Such a sad day it was in 1991. How different was life for all of us who were around when it happened? I was just a child of 23! Now I'm a newly wed, for the 1st time. God knows if I married who I was dating back then I'd have been divorced a long time ago!
