He only spoke English. His family only spoke English to him.
Freddie only spent 8 years with his parents before he was shipped off to boarding school in India (that was taught in English)and stayed there until his late teens when he moved to England with his family. So his accent would have had an Indian feel,but English was all he spoke. Like with my kids, my wife and I always spoke Spanish around the house to each other or to family on the phone (figuring the kids would pick it up) but as we only to spoke them in English, they didnt learn Spanish. Freddies parents only had 8 years with him in Zanzibar and it seems they probably just did the same as we did with our kids. Hope that helps. If you have any other freddie questions, id be happy to answer them (if I can) via private message as this is a site for autographs and I don't want to clog it up with freddie trivia lol
This item is 100% genuine
Interesting photo as well. The woman next to Freddie was Barbara Valentin. A friend of his that acted as a beard for the press in Mary Austin's place. Mercury was terrified of letting the public find out he was gay and Barbara was pretending to be his lover in public while his actual lover (boyfriend Winnie seen in the back of the photo) was asked to walk behind them while press were around. It was a different time... as someone with a gay son, I'd like to think times have changed and people are more tolerant now. Poor Fred had to keep things a bit more under wraps back then. Thanks for sharing the photo
Barbara and Freddie fell in love in 1984. Their relationship was love and sex at the same time. So Freddie wasn't gay as almost everybody thinks, but bisexual. With Barbara he would have sex with men as well in Munich. Freddie and Barbara never pretended. A gay guy would have never slept with a woman the way Freddie did with Barbara... Nice signatures by the way...
Not true. I've spoken with Peter Freestone about Freddie and Barbara on a few occasions and he said Freddie and Barbara never had a physical relationship. Jim Hutton also said the same. As a matter of fact, even Ms Valentin said they were just friends in The Untold Story in which she was filmed. Its also been confirmed via Crystal Taylor that the two were never physical and that Freddie himself identified as gay. The whole Barbara being a lover lie came from Lesley Ann Jones' book years ago (which has been proven to be full of lies by many in the Queen camp). Freddie was not bisexual. He was gay. He himself told those around him in the late 80s that there were no other women after Mary (also confirmed by peter and crystal). I'm assuming you're getting your info from the Jones book and the channel 5 docudrama based on her book? Keep in mind that Brian, Roger and Freddies mother and sister tried to get it stopped because of the inaccuracies. Get your information from people who were there. This isn't the place to discuss the man's sexuality so if youd like to continue, send me a message privately.

Well said!


Very authentic imo.
It´s a shame that they are faded.

Biro and pencil signatures age well. But it all depends on how they are displayed. UV glass, museum mounts and where possible away from direct light source. These Queen signatures have been stored away in a drawer in an acid free folder and envelope since the 80's!!

I think it is not genuies. but if it is, too much faded...i do not like the singature of Freddie and John...

Rogers sign, seem to be right...but who knows.

i would not buy this...sorry

David - This is 100% genuine. I received it from the tour manager myself!

The signatures of Brian, Roger and Freddie are very clear! John is not as faded as this scan suggests. He used a different blue ink sadly.

Regards, Richard.
