Long article about Freddie this week from Rolling Stone. It's not perfect, and there's a few minor errors here and there, but on the whole it's a good read.

Thanks for posting this. I like that they give Freddie a lot of artistic credit for Queen, but I don't like how the author treats AIDS like some kind of redemptive spiritual experience.

It's possibly worth noting that the author Mikal Gilmore is the brother of executed American murderer Gary Gilmore. He wrote a whole memoir about his brother's death and his family's dysfunction and maybe that background accounts in part for what I found to be a morbid tone throughout this article.

Or maybe I'm just hypersensitive.
