It's hard for me to watch. I think Live Forever was the last song he recorded in the studio for the album.

He's so thin, it makes me tear up.  Cry

This was the last video he was in. Innuendo had songs with some powerful lyrics. Brian May said once that he thought Freddie's work on The Show Must Go On was his best ever.

Yup you're right, The Show Must Go On I knew it was a song that had a double meaning to me. Nice job Fuzz. I remember Brian saying that Freddie would literally drag himself to the mic and then pound out these incredible vocals.

I can't watch that video though Fuzz, just can't.  Cry

Freddie's death was one of those "Where were you?  What were you doing?" moments.  I was just north of Centerville, Utah on I-15 driving my wife's POS Ford Escort. 

Oddly, I was on the other side of the freeway driving a ten ton flatbed (also a Ford) when the Challenger tragedy was reported. 

These days I grit my teeth and close my eyes through that stretch of road.
