Queen had entered the ‘80s with the release of their single “Save Me” in January 1980, but that soon seemed like a toe in the water when follow-up “Play the Game” arrived on May 30. The song itself was notable for being the first Queen piece to feature a synthesizer, but it was the video that generated the real buzz.

Freddie Mercury had already cut off his trademark long hair and stopped painting his fingernails. The “Save Me” video and the album art for turning-point album The Game – to arrive in June – showed him without those classic ‘70s adornments. The changes had caused “the grief of many of his female fans,” as Jacky Gunn reported in 1992 book Queen: As It Began, adding: “The result was that gifts of razors and bottle of black nail polish flooded the band’s office

Queen receives her own stamps for the 50th anniversary

June 23, 2020   Seraja   3

The British rock band Queen receives a nice anniversary gift from the Royal Mail. A special stamp set consisting of thirteen stamps will be released in July. Eight album covers, four live group photos and a classic group photo are printed. The set is available from July 9 and costs 17 euros. NME reports this.

Guitarist Brian May was touched by this gesture. “It is difficult to describe what I feel when I see these stamps. From the moment we started as youngsters 50 years ago, we have worked hard to pursue a dream. It is sometimes crazy to realize that we have become a national institution. “

Drummer Roger Taylor shares those sentiments. “We belong to the furniture now! What an enormous honor, I am very grateful. “

The stamps show album covers of Queen II (1974), Sheer Heart Attack (1974), A Night At The Opera (1975), News Of The World (1977), The Game (1980), Greatest Hits (1981) , The Works (1984) and Innuendo (1991).

After the Beatles (2007) and Pink Floyd (2016), Queen is the third British band to be immortalized on a stamp.

Stone Town, Zanzibar (CNN) — Down a small, narrow alley in the historic Stone Town neighborhood of Zanzibar, an old building beckons to visitors. Faded photographs are pinned outside the door while inside, a gallery of glossy pictures and old newspaper clippings lead the way to the room’s centerpiece: a black piano with an interesting history.A young Zanzibari boy once played that piano. His name was Farrokh Bulsara, but you probably know him better as Freddie Mercury.

The flamboyant frontman of British rock band Queen, Mercury was born in Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous island off the coast of Tanzania. This museum is dedicated to his memory.

Jim Hutton about Freddie

For the first time since he had told me of his condition Freddie brought up the subject of his death. He asked me a very odd question, ‘What are you going to do when I die?’

‘I don’t know,’ I said, crying, ‘I can’t handle it all.’

‘Well how do you think I feel?’ he replied. I looked over and Freddie was crying too. He cuddled up to me and we cried quietly together, hugging each other tighter for some kind of reassurance…..

I lay awake crying most of the night, with the thought of Freddie’s illness and his inevitable death racing through my mind. What was I going to do when he died? I had no idea. I often used to cry on my own, thinking about Freddie’s illness during quiet moments at Garden Lodge, but I made sure he never saw me doing it. I’d go to bed and cry myself to sleep. Through the day I tried to put all thought of Freddie’s illness at the back of my mind, but in the still of the night it would come back to haunt me.
