If the band members were informed of Freddies illness in 1989, when did their families find out if at all? Brian and Roger were both divorced but would they have been able to clarify things with their families? John wasn't divorced and had teenage children - did he have to keep a secret for 2 and a half years? Anyone know how this might have worked?
I believe that Jim said in Mercury and Me that Freddie told Dominique after she was diagnosed with breast cancer as a sort of solidarity; she'd always have his shoulder to cry on if she needed to talk about it.
