|I've heard that in the last moments, Freddie used to record almost everything that Brian and Roger and even Freddie writed for him in order to leave as many recorded songs as he could. Some of these songs featured in Innuendo and Made in Heaven albums but most of them remain unissued. Do you people know something about this songs? There will be an upcoming album?
|'Mother Love' was last recorded by Freddie track -at september 1991, probably. The rest of recorded stuff, even if it doesn't feature on MIH, wouldn't be released, I guess.
|There are no more 'final sessions songs'! Anything that was of use hás been used. All that remains are tons of add lips, but no songs!
|mother is not from september 91.it's from 23rd november!!!!!
don't joke,its from may 91
|So Freddie continued recording until the 23rd November 1991, I cannot believe it!
|Freddie isn't dead, it's all just a big publicity stunt. He's just chilling on an deserted island somewhere, surrounded by gay guys with moustaches :)

It was Freddie's last recording song and his las recording sessions in Montreux were at September 1991, so...
|I remeber reading an article about the "Mother love" recording session. Can't remember the page it was on. But it said Freddie was very very weak at the point of recording it and only could come to the studio when he used pain reliever. He could only sing for about an hour. I remember I was very impressed by the lines that said that he was missing an powerful part in the song, so he started singing the part "Out in the city..." with all the power and emotion that was left in him.
Freddie promised to finish this track later because he felt bad. He went back to London. And never did it back again to Montreux because he died a week later. So "Mother love" was indeed recorded in October/November 1991. Brian had to sing the last verses because there was no more Freddie....

|I remember reading a quote by David Richards saying that Freddie recorded his last vocal in Montreux and flew to London the following day. Then he heard about his death a couple of weeks later so that would date Freddie's last recording around early November 1991 (Which is TRULY amazing, btw).
Does anyone remember this quote?
|Yes, this is the quote i wrote about! Thnx.
|noooooooooooooo.if you see champions of the world the interview with david richards.he has a paper on which is written:mother love-may91
|Has it ever crossed your mind that the recording sessions might have been spread out over a longer period of time ?
|and why he shows may 91?
listen to me,stupid fucks who says"wow,nov 91"....the song wouldiful if he was recordered in feb 90?i dont think.in sept 91 freddie was preparing to die and didn't have the strnght to sing
|and why he shows may 91?
listen to me,stupid fucks who says"wow,nov 91"....the song would be less beautiful if it was recordered in feb 90?i dont think.in sept 91 freddie was preparing to die and didn't have the strnght to sing

What 'may 91' on the paper means? I think there's paper with 'nov 94', when Brian, Roger and John worked with it again - but it tells nothing.
Besides I tell what I know: I wasn't with Freddie in Montreux at autumn 1991 and I can't say if he recorded something or not, I just say what I've read in the interview of someone's from Queen/Montreux studio crew.

So thanks for calling me a stupid fuck, I really deserve it.
|are we perhaps missing the most obvious answer to the 'May 91' thing?
it's been reported (several times) that Freddie was singing lyrics just as quickly as Brian could scribble them down on paper and hand them to him....
which would mean Brian wrote the lyrics. or at least a good portion of them.
Brian. Brian May. May. in 1991
*never seen 'Champions of the World'*
*possibly talking out of my arse*
|Nope, the date was on a recording map from Mountain Studios.
|I remember reading once that Freddie left Mountain Studios in Switzerland two weeks before his death.
He could have recorded up until the first week of November in 1991.
|I remember reading that as well...
|sorry for my bad words.
obviously i dunno nothin about last freddie days.imo it's quite strange that he sang in nov 91
|Wasn't it Let Me Live? I'm sure it was.
brian_may_wannabe wrote: Wasn't it Let Me Live? I'm sure it was.Err, is this trying to be a word game or... if you meant it, then it CERTAINLY wasn't Let Me Live. It was Mother Love, 100%. I read it in a Brian interview, so it's quite sure that THIS was Freddie's last song ever recorded.
Wait, no, there's another track after Mother: the 1st bonus track! Freddie's last "yeah" ever! :)
Btw, Brian stated in the same interview that Made In Heaven was the last song ever WRITTEN by Freddie. But MIH is from '85, as far as I know. So there are only two explanations occuring to me:
1) Either Brian was struck by a sudden fit of amnesia and forgot Freddie wrote MIH way back in '85,
2) Either Freddie "rewrote" (musically) the song for their last album and that was indeed the last song he's ever written. Which would be kinda cool, the message of the song would be fitting in.
But that would mean they've recorded all the song together - I used to think they only reworked the track from Mr. Bad Guy, possibly after Freddie had passed away.
What about that??
|I remember this being from Queenonline, when somebody purporting to be David Richards signed on and started revealing information about the final recording sessions, and that Mother Love was recorded in November 1991.
While I want to believe this is true, I also believe "David Richards" was revealed to be a fake, thus making his credibility and information all the more dubious. So, unless Brian or the real David Richards confirms this, I'll still believe that 'Mother Love' was recorded in the summer of 1991.
Although I can't recall the 1995 interview with Richards about the final sessions, so if that's what people are referring to, then I'm clearly talking out of my ass.
It's pretty heroic, though - "despite his crippling disease, Freddie braved the odds and recorded until he couldn't sing anymore, then died a week after recording his final vocal" looks far better than "Freddie stopped recording in the summer of 1991 and relaxed in his London mansion until his death".
|i dont it was nov 91.i think it was may.summer 91 cause i wanna be generous
|"Mother Love" isn't in 100% written by Brian. It was co - written by Freddie.
|Why is it so bloody difficult to decide when Mother Love was recorded? Lots of people name lots of different dates. I'm not talking about fans now, but about what Queen people have said in interviews. Same thing with the shooting of TATDOOL.
This variety of information gives birth to a lovely conspiracy theory: Freddie isn't dead. He recorded that song at some point after 1991 and the guys don't remember anymore what they lied. Only joking.
I also can't understand why there are so many different versions of who actually was in the room with Freddie when he died.
|I always thought Let Me Live was the last one because he sang a lot of Mother Love (with Brian doing the last bit) and very little of Let Me Live (with Brian and Roger doing quite a bit of bit). That's how I always thought that was the last one. We all have different theories and that was just mine.

bmw: Let Me Live wasn't even part of those last sessions.
I'm sure the bit with Made In Heaven was a typo. Brian most probably referred to A Winter's Tale, which is generally regarded as being the last song Freddie ever wrote (not counting his co-writing credit on ML).
|I think some of you are so full of shit. Especially the fools that feel the need to use this forum to bash Freddie and make there stupid ass gay jokes. I could careless wheather he was recording his last songs in May or November of 1991. All that matters is that he rocked like no other Frontman of a band ever has and now he is gone. Who cares about a few recordings lingering around when he was dying. The man left you with 25 fucking albums to enjoy so talk about that..........Peace out
|No words, ladies and gentlemen. No words.
A round of applause, if you please.
|i thought that they didn't record a whole song, but every time freddie was in they recorded a bit of a song and then he left.
And if i'm correct there it was told that a winters tail was the last he recorded, i think it was told at the FM momerial in Montreux the first time.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but i also thought mother love was the last song he recorded.
|Okay, let me give you the information you can get with only using official Queen sources (documentaries, official homepage etc):
Days of Our lives video was filmed in May 1991: Last portrait of Freddie, which can be seen in the book of Freddie Solo Collection is commented with date of picture: 30th May, 1991.
(NB: Brian's footage was filmed later, since he was in the USA promoting Innuendo then)
Let Me Live was recorded in 1982 (originally with lyrics that sounded too much like an Aretha Franklin song).
Mother Love contains Freddie's last vocals recorded in studio.
Winter's Tale is Freddie's last written song to be recorded and published.
Btw, when Richards said Fred died a couple of weeks after his last recordings, it can ALSO mean months. 12 weeks are also a couple of weeks.
|why in let me live freddie sings only one verse if it's from 1982?
freddie voice in this song is from 1982?
|It was A Winter's Tale And Mother Love.
Brian Finish Mother Love Because Freddie Died Before They Can Finish The Song
Thank You, God Bless You, Sweet Dreams You Lot Of Tarts. Goodbye
|Why shouldn't they all sing one song? Action This day is also a duet and comes from the same sessions. If you listen to the interview on the On Fire DVD they say that they had a lot of time and discarded many songs.
Mother Love is the only song Freddie did not sing on his own because he died too soon to finish it.

|erm...I never claimed the contrary, did I ?
|Mother Love is when I know the May 22, 1991 Freddie was so ill that he had to shoot on and off parts of filming in the summer and autumn of 1991
Freddie returned home from the way he joined in the afternoon on a plane and flew back to London which was three weeks before death.
Brian May is then completed by the group Queen.
weirdest post of the century...on so many levels
why did you feel compelled to reply to an 8 year old thread?
1. it's not as if you added anything new - if you read all of the previous posts you'd see that
2. it's not as if you are disagreeing with anything said
where would you like your "interminable delay between 'flash & bang' award", posted to?
Brian May is then completed by the group Queen.seems to be that old c*nt john.simon is back. whatever he says (as you are able to understand him...!) has nothing to do with the universe we all know as 'reality'.
plz don't give a damn to anything this user is saying.
