My one uncle was a big Queen fan, also drove Reliant Robins well into the 90s.

Being from Shard End I think he was just trying to be different from all the ELO fans. :LOL:

Makes you feel old for sure.

There's a guy who goes past me on a bike when i'm fishing down the canal. always got his 80s music blaring, one time it was Don't Stop Me Now, must admit I had that in my head the rest of the day, it was cold, sunny and crisp (much like today) I was out fishing and I did feel unstoppable.

Thanks Freddie and Bike dude (y)

@Corn Master Out of all of the acts that appeared at Live Aid Queen bossed that stage. Freddie had the crowd in palm of his hand. They were with him and him with them. Another notable band on the day for me was Simple Minds they also got the crowd on their side, singing along with hits like Alive & Kicking and Don't You Forget About Me.

I'm one a the few that couldn't stand the 'gay faggoty toothy tw@t' but that was 30 years ago, l was 28 and a gobby schite.
When l heard he had died l said "flip it, one less to worry about"
I wish l had the attitude back then that l've got now, l might have been a nicer person. Peace.

Best ever watch


whilst i agree Queen's live aid performance was very good, as a fan (and too young to have attended, born in '75!) i find the perfermance at Wembly in '86 to be their best!

Sorry to be negative folks but queen music is ruined by the awful guitar playing of Brian May, it hurts my ears it`s trebly to the point
of squealing.

I know it's not politically correct to state that I didn't really rate Queen as a live band - but I didn't

Only saw them once at some stadium in Greater Greggland (late 80s?)- the lopsided one I think - as my ex-wife was a fan.

I never have liked stadium gigs - you end up watching the big screens rather than the actual stage, so only ever see what the cameraman or director actually wants you to see. Might as well stand in your back garden with the television pushed in front of the patio doors.

I still know where I was when Elvis died.
Never understood why he was/is idolized so much or Freddy Mercury for that matter.
And why do people bother remembering where they were / what they were doing when someone famous died?
