On 9 August 1986 at Knebworth Park in Stevenage, before an audience of 200,000 people, Freddie Mercury, who was already ill, said goodbye to his fans for the last time. As a group, Queen's love of theatrics and indifference towards political and social issues laid them open to censure by critics and the press. Their songs were images of everyday life and sometimes of dreams. Some celebrated friendship, others were songs about love. Crazy little thing called love is a classic example: written by Freddie in 1979, it topped the British charts for 13 weeks and was awarded a gold record.
