Freddie Mercury, long before his death, had given a prophetic answer on the death of the Queen frontman
Freddie Mercury shortly before his death he had made a prophetic comment about his death. He had already been diagnosed some time ago and had talked about his future in numerous interviews. In an interview, an answer seems like a real prophecy about his disappearance.
Freddie Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS around 1987. Only Queen and a few close friends and acquaintances knew of this disease. He has always kept his real health conditions under wraps, although many news leaked in the months preceding that November 24, 1991, when Freddie Mercury died, giving his record producer Jim Beach a press release the day before to read to fans. .
The last time Freddie Mercury appeared in public was on February 18, 1990, when he took the stage alongside Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. The guitarist spoke for him on that occasion.
On the occasion of the presentation of The Great Pretender, Freddie Mercury said: “Most of what I do is pretend. It’s like acting, you know? I go on stage and pretend to be a macho-man and all those things, and then in my videos, I play all these different characters, and pretend anyway”.
“When I go on stage I play a certain role. When I get off, I mean, I don’t take him away with me, otherwise I would be dead, you know? So it’s like a play “.
A prophetic response about his death, which after the singer’s disappearance seemed quite disturbing. He meant that if he lived his entire life as he did on stage with the band he would be consumed by now and he would be long dead already.
Five years later, death really knocked on his door. Taking away one of the most beautiful voices international music has ever had.
