    Freddie Mercury was one of the most charismatic, complex and fascinating characters in British rock music. The story of Queen is a well known one but this new film focuses on Freddie Mercury and the solo projects he worked on outside of Queen. Using extensive archive footage of interviews with Freddie Mercury, concerts, video shoots and personal material, much of it previously unseen, along with new interviews with friends and colleagues, a portrait emerges of a man who was very different to his flamboyant onstage public persona. A generous, caring, thoughtful man with a self-deprecating sense of humor and a genuine passion for music. Freddie Mercury touched the lives of millions through his career both with Queen and as a solo performer and this new program will delight and inform his legions of fans. / Bonus Features

      he died the exact day I was born... I'm so sad I never existed in the same world as this beautiful man.

    22. Oh Gee Georgie

      In a way though, Paul Prenter was partially responsible (but not entirely) for Freddie getting HIV, if you think about it. Getting him to come down to that level of debauchery. Freddie, I think; without Paul would have sought out love instead of sex if left to his own devices. He was a shy man, seemed to have class and manners, but Paul kind of introducing Freddie to drugs and the club scene brought him down many notches to the lower class. I think Paul could see that Freddie was easy to sway and manipulate because there was something in Freddie that was lacking. For Prenter, he liked the power it gave him to be "in charge" of a rock star.

      1. Kerrie Edmunds

        I thought the same Georgie. Wish he’d never met him.

    23. Jack Kennedy

      Freddie was such a funny playful type, and I think this is something that was missing from the movie. Rami did a good job playing Freddy, but you got a very stiff portrayal of the real man. And the humor that came natural to Freddie is something that draws you into him as a person. I think Freddie was looking for 1 person to see beyond the showman and wanted just Freddie the person, the little boy that hid inside of him that just wanted to be hugged and held while he cried, and understood his pain without asking questions.

      Freddie: " Cock Bollocks Satisfaction". CBS meaning😀

    34. Superflysister 777

      So here i came on as an MJ Fan...let me watch a little Freddie...definately very happy discovering "my man" in the doc in the very first minutes. Then watching...and crying my eyes out regarding Freddies meeting with Monserat. Michael loved and connected to his fans on such a deep level because first of all he was a fan himself. Loads of stories on him breaking in tears meeting his idols who helped him overcome his heartships. So i really felt that. No matter what the album sounded like. I cried happy tears for him the moment she said...lets do an album then. Wow that was everything. ❤ The only disturbance in this doc is this judgemental 💩 head Matt Lucas....ughhh hope he did his homework by now and shuts his big mouth on stuff he knows nothing abt. Ok edit...: on a last note watching that he wept for his death and lit a candle. So he has feelings. He is human. He loved someone. So now how u go trash someone else who is dead and other ppl loved and cherished and lost way too hurts. He needs to shut up and just love who he loves. And not trash others memories.

    35. Wolff Myrtie

      The greatest front man ever. No band will ever top the live aid performance. I'll say it better than the Beatles, stones, zeppelin etc.

    36. Rocky Disaster

      I'm watching this show twice & this is 3rd time i'm watching this documentary but never get bored 💝 Well this is FREDDIE MERCURY PERSONA I BELIEVE ❣❣❣❣❣❣💘💘💘💘💘💥💥💥💥💥💥

      i love fredie, the way that i love maria ozawa

    40. Peter G

      I remember watching live aid in 1986 and it was so boring and I just waited for Queen to come on to the stage.. then Queen came on.. that's it, they made Live Aid and the only 20 minutes worth watching... Anything before and after was just noise.

    41. Lemons World

      Great. Thanks! :D

    42. Joe Hughes

      He was wonderful, A great singer who went to soon.

    43. Zoran Kalina


    44. e balle

      He has serious over bite..

    45. Martin Bezuch

      There is no better singer in human history

    46. Ramón Mestres

      Va ser una de les estones mes boniques i emocionants de la meva vida sentirlos en directe a uns 15 metros a Montjuïch de Barcelona.

    47. Tommy Sweetweather

      I've never heard anyone say " Freddie was a nice guy"....those who knew him say he was generous and things like that....but they never say he was a sweetheart......

    48. Butchie Block

      I cannot imagine the bullying and humiliation he must have dealt with as a youth, because of his overbite. Then again perhaps if he was in a foreign school they may have been more sympathetic, let's hope. Turns out, he was quite the talented entertainer!!!

    49. cockroaches oggy

      The bigger are better , in everything 😅

    50. cockroaches oggy

      The bigger is better ... in everything you know that 😅

    51. Goot dees

      It’s impossible to avoid falling in love with Freddie ❤️

    52. Julie Raymond

      Also,none of us can continue acting like we did as teenagers/ young adults anyway.Parents flipped their kids enough then with threats of "Grow up,or else people will talk about you." Ironic, isn't it that some of these same parents/ guardians actually behaved that way in front of everyone,and never flinched once if anyone mentioned that to them.

      1. Julie Raymond

        Or, they excused it quickly by saying they were only reliving their own teen years.Nonsense! They just refused to act like they were over that part of their lives,and did the embarrassing thing of trying to be like their kids and their friends.I imagine many kids told their parents about this ,and the parents either ignored it ,or said they were very immature, too old to behave that way,especially if they were over 40 .

    53. Julie Raymond

      Besides, many we hear of today,would have been closeted in the past 40_50 years,because of the backlash they would have gotten. When I was a kid,I never knew Elton John was gay. I knew he dressed in wild,colorful costumes ,and had flashy sunglasses for years. Also,though Freddie never married,it does not always mean someone is gay/ lesbian.Sometimes,people never marry,by choice,or ,they cannot find the right person for them.It isn't all or nothing here.Everyone is different.

    54. Julie Raymond

      Many people have had the obnoxious and false idea ,that if you like some band,actor/ actress ,etc,who is lesbian / gay,you are approving their choices.NO,NO,and NO! You may appreciate their talent in their jobs,but,if you feel that way,you are disturbed.

    55. Cecilia Jalop

      Crush ko talaga si Freddie Mercury

    56. JimD2525

      Freddie Mercury WAS Queen, made Queen (Band, he had a Fantastic Band). He WAS "The Great Pretender", the Best of 'The Best'. A Very Sad Loss (& I don't care IF he was Gay). Freddie Mercury WILL Live FOREVER, the BEST of the BEST.

    57. Lorraine Flynn

      In a video once Freddie said When I am dead who cares. Wow was he wrong. If only he knew how wrong he was. We care Freddie oh my goodness how we care!

    58. Showjumperjason

      Do you know, I am told at least twice a week I look like Freddie Mercury, now I just say we are related. 😂🤩

    59. Jack Wolfe

      Do you think he'd be blown away with audio tech these days?

    60. Olga Pershin

      What a great performer he was and still is!! Love you Freddie!

    61. gibbon146

      Uhh freddie is dead hie dide 1991 so how can they do an iterwie 2012

    62. RipUpHill

      November 24th 1991. My 17th birthday and one of the worst days of my life. I have loved Queen since I first started listening to music. We did a Queen airband in grade 5. One of the greatest artists of all time, a monumental loss.

      ******(**** Here's why this is happening! In Trump's America you go to prison for 10 years for killing a (Exodus20:4) statue, but for killing a Black person you go free. This is the man who says, that he has done more for Blacks than any President. That would imply that no President has done any thing, as justice should be the very lowest form of support, which Trump has brought zero justice for them. America, please keep reading to see, what I am talking about! This is what is happening in America? It seams to be under attack by the Roman Catholic Church. There was a man shot, who some say, that the man attacked Police, but I say where did you get your video of the Philadelphia shooting, because the one I seen, the guy never attacked the Police? Two Police officers shot him from over 10 feet away. He wasn't even facing their direction. Is Trump who he claims to be? Remember Herod, the Roman Governor of Judah at the time of Jesus. He was restoring the Temple of his day, but when he heard of the Messiah's soon arrival, he had all the children in that area 2 years and under put to death. The Roman Empire is a master at deception. Please keep reading to learn more! Antifa means anti Fascists. The Fascists are those people like Hitler, and Mussolini, which directly killed 12,000,000 human beings and 60,000,000+ through their war. Fascism is the joining of government with fake religion. Where they exterminate people. Antifa opposes the extermination of people. Trump is an unbelievable tyrant. We seen George Floyd get suffocated by 3 Police officers, Jacob Blake shot unarmed in the back, a Black woman shot through a window by Police while she was playing video games with her nephew, and many more killings by Police of unarmed people. The person shot this time was 10 feet away from apparently full grown men with guns, so why could they not have subdued him with out killing him. Why be so quick to shoot for one thing? Why not use the baton to knock out the knife, if he had one. He was not charging at them. They could have shot him in the shoulder. This could be a Trump staged event, as he is a tyrant. There is a fake video that shows him swiping at the Police, but what really happened was, when the Police fired all those bullets(5-8?)he dropped down to the ground. This could be like the German kid(Kyle Rittenhouse)(HUfast Trump sent in to kill in Kenosha, to cover up the killing of Jacob Blake, so that people will associate the violence to the wrong group. Kyle was sent by the police to Kenosha to kill some one, so as to create a smoke scream for the killing of Jacob Blake. The police throw the semi automatic rifle holding group some bottles of water from a Police armored vehicle, including Kyle. The Police thank them for coming. Kyle doning his blue latex gloves(same gloves the Police use when they kill) kills a person, after the armed group tells people to quit filming. Kyle runs from there after calling to say he killed. He runs to the group of armored police vehicles two blocks away, but not before killing an other man who tried to stop him because of the first killing, and shot a third person also, blowing half his bicep completely off. Kyle walked right by the Police armored vehicles still carrying his semi automatic rifle and left the state, even though the police must have heard all the shots, and people yelling to them, this is the guy who shot all those people. Police are not that stupid, evil but not stupid. This was a staged event. The blue latex gloves show the premeditation. The armed group told people to turn of their cameras(this is on video). This is the Pope waging war on you America. This was to make you hate Antifa and BLM. Some one from media should ask Trump, why Antifa has been labeled a terrorist organization! Was it because they shot these three people. It would have been. The Pope has a Greek false prophetess falsly prophesying your destruction . A so called Christian prophet who prophesied (announced the planned pandemic) before it happened, also says that democrates will disappear after the election. They are telling what they are doing, in advance. The Roman empire still exists today. It is controlled by a religious leader, the Pope. He is the man sitting in the Temple(false temple), who is the King above the Kings of the earth of Revelation/Apocalypse17,18 of the Bible. The Pope is the King of the Vatican City State. That is the only place in the world with a King ruling over a city, and definitely the only one ruling over nation states. He controls the Empire, including Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Britain, Turkey, and Italy, along with the territories they conquered. There was 10 kings before and will or already is 10 kings again. Although the prophecy of Revelation/Apocalypse17,18 belongs to the Papal false religious system that rides the Roman Empire, it tries to make America to think it is you. Trump is working with Rome, to destroy it's enemies around the world. Rome was responsible for the Nazi holocaust of world war two, by two Catholics Hitler and Mussolini. Hitler used a fake typhus epidemic to round up people in to concentration camps, and extermination camps, but before that he smashed, burned, looted and destroyed businesses. Today the same things are going on, accept it is a Corona virus, and it is different people's livelihoods that are being destroyed. Alex Jones is an other participant. He has already falsely called for on many many occasions, for the killing of people, and is a lap dog of Trump, where Trump can do any thing and get away with it. So much for Alex being a champion of truth. He had a reporter at the Kenosha protest, and knows what went down there with Kyle. He is totally compromised. Alex Jones now calling for the mass killing of Americans, and asking Trump to issue mass death warrants. Alex Jones is complaining about Hollywood being full of pediphiles, when actually it is the Catholic Church, that is full of them. Hollywood made a documentary on it, so that is why they are attacking Hollywood. There was over 90 little boys molested by Catholic Priests, in (one) city alone. This false Church/Empire are responsible for all slaughters on earth. Revelation/Apocalypse18 near the end says, in her was found the blood of the prophets(John the Baptist beheaded by the Roman governor of Judea, Herod), Holy ones(all through history, including Jesus(crucified), and all those exterminated from the earth(Jews and others WW2, Rawanda, slaughter of the Americas, etc...). Another extermination like during world war two is going on right now. A false Christian prophet foretold the pandemic in advance, and the disappearing of the Democratic party, but now says, that plague is not the answer, but to start praying for famine, and here is the video (**** Does this mean, because I exposed the fake pandemic, that now they are switching to famine as the attack. Keep reading! Over 2,000,000 acres of America has burned, cities have been wiped from existence. America, you are in a war right now, and your current President has betrayed you. Was "Operation Dark Winter" the training manual for this global war of the Church, on the truth. "Operation Dark Winter" was a training scenario of an epidemic, and all the results of it. The German Nazis would stick an automobile exhaust hose in your home's window, or pick people up for quarantine with a truck, which had the engine exhaust going in to the back, where the people were. The Nazis also used Zychlon B gas(which I think was hydrogen sulfide pellets, which became an odorless gas, when exposed to air), which would suffocate people. Today people are being radiated, with electromagnetic radiation. It can leave you short of breath, your stomach swells, and your brain swells and becomes sore and hot, and your muscles can twitch. Look in to what a Faraday cage does, to get some relief. There is a continuous hissing sound. I noticed they start radiating about a half hour after your light and TV go off, so they have some way of determining that(coloberators?) There is also a type of weapon that can make your heart palpate funny, like you are going to have a heart attack(an upside down pot over your heart can stop that). Some people will have not even known this was happening while you sleep, but you would be getting run down and irritable. The German Nazis would cremate the bodies, which I know is going on in NewYork state, and Italy at least. The Bible mentions that Jesus's(Yeshua's) followers sold all their possessions, and had all things in common. This is a form of communism. The false church hates it and wages war against it, and that is why Trump is trying to start a war against Russia and China. People of earth must resist tyranny where ever it appears. There is a self described Christian leader Kevin Zadai, who says, that Christians are very powerful, and he invites his (watch his HUfast followers to join him and Trump, as they do a historic cleansing. Is this guy openly talking about a holocaust like extermination? The police took part in rounding people up for Hitler, and they can be seen as not very people friendly.(they get paid by the state) It is not just Blacks being killed, but Whites and minorities as well. Watch the video on HUfast, "Will Trump Bring About Genocide And World War" parts 1 and 2. Trump doesn't want to leave, because he knows that he will be tried as a war criminal. I pray that America will not be a coward like Germany was, as no coward will inherit God's Kingdom. America, you are fighting for your life, world, I should say. Imagine a boot stomping the face of mankind forever, and you will understand what Rome wants to continue doing to every one.*******Pray For Me!*********

      I love how at 5:30 one moment he's chasing the girl, then sees the piano the next moment and just forgets about the girl and starts playing it instead LOL!

    77. Paul Atréïdes

      way better than this garbage movie called "bohemian rhapsody"

      1. david henry

        Yeh unfortunately the group wanted to just make a film about them but paint a very good nice image of Freddie. To get a real take on his life in the movies it would need someone not from queen or close to queen. But they won’t allow it anyway.

    78. PercyPlayz

      Lol that was awesome! I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary! Love Freddy's interviews 😊
