Perhaps the most famous interview of Fred. Filmed in Munich as the band were about to release the works album in 1984. Freddie was interviwed by Rudi Dolezal at Musicland Studios
By the way the stupid comments about "Arnold Schwarzenegger" are old and dated and NOT funny, I'm guessing that to those who say that they seem to cant differentiate between German accents. Rudi is a great guy who contributed towards making some of the best Queen/Freddie videos and documentaries amongst some of the greatest artists in the world.
I dont own this video, I have never received any form of monetary income. Under fair use policy this is kosher. This interview belongs to Queen Productions/Studios
There is a difference; Magic Johnson was diagnosed with HIV and Freddie was diagnosed with full blown AIDS in 1987. Freddie was probably HIV positive for about 10 years before his death. A few more years and the drug cocktail would have worked.
I’m not to sure about the timeline of things or how hiv/aids works, but I think soon after Freddie died a new drug came out that Magic Johnson was able to afford and take. That’s why he still has hiv, not aids.
This great Man,should still be Alive,how come he was not medically, helped.....!!!,too late..??....Lots of HIV Positive people are"fine",I don't get it...Maybe,Freddie did not want to live anymore and fight the virus...??......SAD...SO SAD.When he died,"QUEEN"died with him........WHO COULD REPLACE SUCH AN ICON.......what a waste of life....
I used to be fluent in German as a child, but I’ve forgotten much of the language. Accents however, I have not forgotten. The interviewer who I know is from Austria sounds like a cross between German, and French to me. The Vienna dialect has a nasal tone like French, at least to me. So, I think Schwarzenegger probably grew up in a village outside of Vienna, because he sounds nothing like Rudi, the interviewer. You have to be familiar with dialects though, to be able to hear a difference in the accents, or at least familiar with multiple European languages. I mean, people is Europe can detect where someone is from based off their accent. An Italian would be able to hear a difference in accent in someone from Croatia, and most people from any European country pretty much know the accents of surrounding countries. An Italian, or Frenchman might not know the accent of a Ukrainian, or Romanian specifically, but they’d know they are Eastern European. Here in America, we’ve completely lost touch with our European culture. You can ask any American though where a southern man is from, and we’d know they are from the south based off their accent. Interestingly though, much of Louisiana has folks that sound like they are from the North East, akin to an accent from New York, or New Jersey. It’s interesting has accents can sound depending on the influence. I suspect the reason many Louisianan’s sound akin to North East accents is because of the French roots they have. Much of the North East has French and Italian roots, so that might explain the reason why they sound similar.
It’s amazing how polite Freddie is in the interviews that are on YouTube. It’s quite easy to get swept up in the big, flamboyant side of Freddie which is of course amazing, but he really does come across as a very polite, genuine man.
People fight over whether he's Indian or Persian and he spent his whole life unlabeling himself, creating a new identity through his music that unites all races, colors, and cultures. If you still don't get the message behind his art, HONOUR this beautiful creature and relisten to their songs, use your heart instead of your ears this time.
I can't take credit for this because I found it on another video, but it SO made my day so I just thought I'd share the BEST YouTube Comment EVER!😀
“I absolutely HATE it when people compare Freddie Mercury to God. I mean don’t get me wrong, he’s great an’ all, but he’s no Freddie Mercury”.
Fuck, after watching the movie, I feel so strange to feel so absurdly sad from an artist's passing I never got to watch live or experience him while he was still alive and yet, I feel such a profound sadness that someone so talented, so poetic, so artistic and from a heterosexual Male, so beautiful in just his very being that it staggers me. So long as your music lives, you'll live for ever Freddy.
Freddy was a master troll. He's basically toying with the interviewer. Imagine if one of your favorite musical memories was attending a Queen concert only to find out years later that Freddie actually hated that specific tour that you saw and that he didn't even bother to give it his all when you were there. Troll level 9000 posthumously.
Lightbringer Not at all, he has the energy but his voice is not as close as Marc Martels voice is to Freddie Mercury. Second Marc is not a impersonator, he in know way true to impersonate Freddie, Marc brings his own perspective with it. Lee is impersonating him, yet on a scale of one to ten Marc has a 8 and lee has a 7, his voice is close to Freddie’s but not close enough, so far Marc has the closest voice. If anything people also saw lee and they were disappointed.
A film maker doing a movie on a legends life would definitely searched for all the details ,would have contacted his friend s n families to know about his life. So pls stop Fighting for his orgin. His music rules...
This is an interview, he might be faking it here. His band mates knew the real Freddie. Not any one of us. So based on interviews we cannot make judgements... Otherwise, his postures, dancing, gestures etc during his concerts are portrayed brilliantly by Malek.
A lot of people romanticize the terrible personalities of celebs after they die, but Freddie was actually likeable. Sharp wit, blunt yet eloquent observations, great ability to relax and act naturally during a conversation, opinions on other celebs that are actually make sense and aren't just profanity being thrown around, etc. Some of the media darlings today need a fistful of Xans and a liter of straight vodka to slow their narcissism down in order to actually answer interviewer questions. Ugh. Freddie was a great talent AND personality. It's an understatement, really.
