#1024: Where were you when Freddie died? When Eric died?

Lunch With Ladano yesterday was regarding the events of November 23, 1991.  The announcement that Freddie Mercury had AIDS, the worst kept secret in rock. Do you remember?



  1. I was walking home from a lecture at university in Leeds – freezing cold, miserable, with almost no money in my pocket at all when my friend told me. I scraped together enough for a pint later on and we went out and drank a toast to him, before going home because we couldn’t afford a second drink.


  2. On my way to class. I remember it clearly because we’d just gotten the news that he was HIV+ the day before and then he was gone the next day. I loved the Innuendo album and was unable to listen to it again for at least a year afterwards.
