Nelson Mandela: Brian May and Roger Taylor Tributes

Very sad to hear of Madiba's passing.

We (Queen, along with Dave Stewart, and the Corrs) were privileged to spend some days and nights with him at his game park retreat, while we were organising the first 46664 concert for AIDS at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town. They were life-changing days, with quiet time and talks around a camp fire at night, which we will remember til we die.

Mandela was the most inspiring man of his generation. His message, by example, was the power of forgiveness. He showed us that it's possible to act after great injustice with no thought of revenge. He was light, funny, enormously generous, and, quietly, the greatest example to the world that a man can be.  

RIP dear Madiba. 

Brian May 

Mandela, how sad. Leaves a great big hole in the world.

I think a tribute is in order. Idea for an anthem: "These Are The Days Of Our Lives". Maybe get Axl Rose to drop that chip off his shoulder for five minutes and stand alongside every other band who's ever played SA for it?

Born free.........as free as the wind blows......
Taken for peace. Manny years of his life.
Born free.............again.
