    I was 11 when this happened. There’s no better band than Queen. And there’s no better people than Roger Taylor, Brian May, John Deacon and Freddie Mercury.

    It's very poignant. Especially when Roger called out Freddie's mother. Grammys are for idiots who make crap music nowadays.

    A short epiphany. At that time, it was ten years since Freddie's passing. Now it's been 18 years since Queen have been inducted in the HOF.

    chose not to be present at Queen's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Famein 2001. He also did not join the collaboration with singer Paul Rodgers (as Queen + Paul Rodgers),[33] where he was replaced on bass by Danny Miranda.[34] On the Queen + Paul Rodgers collaboration album The Cosmos Rocks which featured new material from the trio, he was thanked in the notes on the CD. Brian May has since said that Deacon is still involved on the business side of Queen but chooses to stay out of the limelight. May also confirmed that Deacon approved of the making of the band's biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, where he was played by Joseph Mazzello.[35]

    Poor man can you just imagine how He must be destroyed to know diagnostic. He had certainly felt despair, deep depression because when you learn this kind of news with no chance to be saved. I understand him because I am suffering of a terrific illness who missed to kill me twice and I felt frightened and terribly loss. i,ve been saved but I know what is like to feel different and have terrible pains all my body.

    There are hundreds of musicians who got their Grammy's but are forgotten and the new generation never knew. QUEEN may not have those grammys's but their music lives in their fans' heart all over the world. Freddie's birthday is celebrated up to this year. His life and music live in our hearts far greater than any award one can have!

    Rockstars, despite looking really rough and tough, seem to be the most respectful (and smartest) group of musicians. They don't seriously diss other well-known groups and the more junior groups actually show much respect to their "godfathers". Almost feels like a fraternity.

They should abolished,useless organization.

    I went to the rock and roll hall of fame a few months ago and on one floor it had autographs of all the I hall of famers and has one wall listing the inducted people through out the years and their is also a machine where you can vote on who you want to be inducted into the hall of fame and I chose Freddie Mercury. I know he will be inducted cause he was an amazing man and he disserves it so badly.
