The word 'Legend' is bandied about way too often imo. However, in the case of Freddie Mercury, he truly was a legend. Like the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Elvis, people will be listening to the music of Queen and Freddie for decades to come.Hard to believe it was 25 years ago today that Freddie died. Most of us would have heard the sad news the morning after, Mon 25th Nov - iirc, I turned on my portable telly in my student digs and heard it on TV-am. We had only just had his press statement 48 hours earlier confirming he was HIV positive and ill with AIDS. 5th September this year would have been his 70th birthday.
BBC1 aired a tribute programme that Monday evening, introduced by Elton John and ending with the premiere of the final video. So many of us were in tears watching it.
