Queen’s legendary frontman Freddie Mercury’s rare photo with another legendary musician, Sir Cliff Richard, has been exposed by a fan page of Mercury, Freddie Mercury Online, and they revealed how he was looking after the AIDS diagnosis.
As you might already know, Freddie lost so much weight since he diagnosed with AIDS in 1987, and he was looking more gaunt day by day. At the age of 45, the legend passed away and left his legacy in this world in 1991.
In the picture, Freddie was wearing a black leather jacket and looking dull, probably due to the devastating disease. On the other hand, Sir Cliff Richard was smiling for the camera and put his arm to Freddie’s shoulder.
Here is what admin of the page wrote:
“Freddie with Sir Cliff Richard on the set of the musical ‘Time’ at the Dominion Theater in London, England in 1988. Pictured by; Duncan Raban.”
A fan named Ernestine Hopson said:
“Poor Freddie, he doesn’t look well in this picture. My heart breaks for this wonderful person.❤️”
Another fan name Anthony added this comment:
“You can tell he’s got a lot of foundation to hide the AIDS spots.”
