Twenty years ago today Freddie Mercury passed away from AIDS. Seeing Queen in 1982 was probably the best concert I've ever been to.

I wonder with all the medical advances if he wouldn't have died had he contracted the disease today.

If he took care of it, had it treated, today likely not.

Freddie Mercury may not have contracted the disease at all, given how much more information & HIV/AIDS awareness there is in 2011.

Was it really twenty years ago? Wow, I'm old.

Just heard "The Game" on the radio. What a beautiful voice.
