I don't like his voice from the 80's (especially on A Kind of Magic and Miracle) but i think he was even more charismatic in the 80's than in the Seventies (especially before Miracle).
Furthermore the full beard didnt suit him.
I like the look of 70's Freddie better. He looked absolutly gorgeous and glamourous. I love the 80's too, he had such confidience and looked so loveable and everything. In the early '85-'86 years he looked so healthy and happy. If you've seen the I Was Born To Love You video, he looked absolutly BEAUTIFUL.

sexy in the 70's very cool, sexy in the 80's and very cool, both are good. Can't choose one.
they are both very different looks but somthing inside me chooses 70's freddie!i also love the way he looked in the very early 90's,in some of his pictures in his eyes i can see a little kid,and a strange,knowing somthing more than most look.........springs almost here,but it still feels like a winters tale................
In early '89, Freddie's health started to rapidly decline. A beard gave weight to his face and hid the extent of the sarcoma lesions. The marks had been visible at the La Nit festival the previous October, perhaps a factor in Freddie's mind.
I perferred 70's Freddie in most ways...except for his stage appearance. His unitard, permed hair, painted fingernails, sequins and jewelery were all way too gay, and unbearably ugly.
Short-haired, moustached Freddie>>>>all
