Freddie Mercury. met him when i was in jr high waiting for them to come out of the hotel on the way to the arena in omaha. our little group were the only ones waiting to see if we could catch a glimpse. this was right when he cut his hair. he asked me if i wanted to ride in the limo with him to the arena. my friends would not let me ride with him. i don't think i was his type...;) he was so sweet to us. poor freddie. so talented. lost so young. :(*


fun fact: I've always said there's a reason why no one's ever made a biopic about Fred Astaire - because who would be able to play a quadruple-threat with the same kind of charisma?

Now we know he's a quintuple-threat, for his intelligence and foresight.
