I've heard about Imagine performed by them.

Did they perform together , or it's just a fake video?

I never see that video ( Imagine ).

Was John alive when Mercury sung Life is real ( Song for Lennon )  ?

They were friends?

...They've forgotten all about God

He's the only reason we exist...

There are a few fakes out there. This one is the most bizarre.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I don't think they ever met each other. Life is Real was written the year after John died.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Paul certainly knew the members of Queen as they attended a few parties together. Not sure about John tho, dont remember ever reading that they ever met.

John didn't meet the members of Queen although all of Queen cite The Beatles as an influence.

 

As mentioned above, Paul is still friends with Roger and Brian although they haven't officially played together at any point thus far.

What this means : "Lennon is a genius,
living in every pore "

I mean secound part above.

And except this line , wich line is about John.

Forgive my ignorance.

Is anybody to explain me , what's Freddie is saying.!

 

'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

"Living in every pore" would suggest to me that Freddie was saying that John inspired millions of people and was so deeply loved that his influence, not just his music but how he inspired others in so many ways, will continue to be felt and lived out and on in them.

 

Its not a song i have heard.

That's exactly what Freddie was trying to get across in the song.
