      Remember watching Live Aid Live.

      Its hard to accept that he would have been that old if still alive, especially seeing him do a Glenn with the Hoover.

      Went and watched Queen at the Hammersmith Odeon in July. Just wasn't the same without his vocals. Great gig all the same.

      It's scary that Queen has been together longer as just Brian and Roger than they did as the 4 piece.

      Only just. I thought that I'd check on Wiki.

      Smile formed in 1968 (Brian May, Tim Staffell & Roger Taylor) which disbanded in 1970. Queen was then formed in 1970 with Brian May, Roger Taylor, Freddie Mercury, Mike Grose and Barry Mitchell. Obviously with Freddie's death in 1991 that lasted the best part of 20 years. This November 24th marks the 21st anniversary of that event.

      I went to the 40th Anniversary exhibition of Queen forming last year. The Works was the first album I bought.

      My mate when I was about 10 - always used to play Fat Bottomed Girls (on vinyl) really loud. Those were the days.

      Hammer to fall was always my favourite form Budapest 1986. They're now playing a remastered version of the gig in Cinema's at the moment.

      They missed a trick at the Olympics when Queen did Radio Ga Ga with Jessie J

      They should have just used Freddie on the Video screens like they did prior to it.

      No disrespect to Jessie J but she ruined it for me.
