1986 : Freddie started filming the video for his single Time at 6am at the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road, London. It was the venue for the musical Time, and because of the show's matinee and evening performances, this was the only time Freddie and the crew could use the theatre. Later that day Freddie was still at the theatre when the afternoon performance began. He watched for a while from the wings, then during the interval he grabbed an ice-cream tray and went out front. It took a while before anyone realized their ice-cream seller was Freddie, and when he was finally recognised he started to throw the ice creams, telling people they could have them free, he'd pay for them all.

1986 : John attended the premiere of the Biggles movie, where he was introduced to the Prince and Princess of Wales. [34 years]
1989 : Queen released their 16th album in the UK called The Miracle. For the first time all songs on this albums are credited to Queen group. Until The Miracle, only Stone Cold Crazy and One Vision had been credited to the whole band. They realised they could work much better under collective credits. One of the reasons is also that royalties were now divided by four. A special phone number with pre-recorded message of Brian talking about forthcoming album filled with few samples.
