To make this comment you must have actually gone there yourself.....and you sound disappointed by the whole thing...... which means you are one of the "sad and lost" people. And as for his music being over rated- I think you need to go back and listen to the first 3 albums. So many of the people making records today sight him as an influence (Muse for example).

6 reviews of Freddie Mercury's home in English
I have been passing this place for many years now and have seen a huge reduction of people visiting. Probably because there is very little to see, except every now and again, sad and lost looking people walking away disappointed and confused. I’m not entirely sure what they are expecting to see, after all the current resident has gone to a great deal of trouble to discourage visiters from leaving graffiti (vandalising) on the wall outside. l Perhaps, over twenty years after the man died, his much over rated music has finally lost its appeal.

as do I. keeping him alive is what all these "sad and lost" people are actually doing. My show Somebody to Love: My Musical Tribute to Freddie Mercury contributes to his life and what he stood for. And, if you don't like his music, why are you on here in the first place? www.carlyozard.com

Well… thats not very nice is it? Do you kiss kiss your mum with that dirty mouth?
Being a big Queen fan, I was intrigued to see this house, but to be honest it probably isn’t worth the trek after seeing it, you really can’t see anything other than a big wall, which has been furthered heightened with electrical barbed wire and two noticeable green doors. The only actual part of the house you can see is the roof now. All the messages have long gone been cleaned off apart from a few written paper messages squeezed behind a protective sheet of plastic on the wall, the area is heavily security cam’d by the looks of it to actively discouraged any attempt to write on the wall aswell. The area the house is situated in is hardly anything to write home about either and feels rather out of place behind some horrible looking flats to the back of the house. Though if you’re a big Queen fan and with a intrigue about Freddie, then you’ll probably take a walk to see it, like I did anyway!
'lcthomas'- how pathetic you truly are.! You are entitled to an opinion, but you are only making yourself sound unbelievably stupid with your comments, you also look stupid with regards to your spelling error.!
Overrated is just the one word, you must try harder.!
DITTO lalaqfc comments.!
"What's the use of an opinion from a mindless village idiot.!"

PSILV... I'm not sure what it is that you object to the most. Perhaps you don't like that I have a different opinion to you towards the music of Mr Mercury & Queen... well thats just the way life is. Or is it my typo. (over rated) You have several in your comment to me by the way.... exclamation marks do not also require a full stop at the end of the word... maybe you should try harder yourself! I stand by my comments that if you visit Logan place, there is little of any interest to see. In fact the current owners are so fed up with the constant graffiti, that they have now taken measures to put an end to it for good. So now there is even less to see... Just a door that somebody used to walk through... Big deal! I know this because I pass it everyday on my way home from work... At around 2pm if you fancy a chat sometime
I am so concerned -`when I tried to look this address up on GoogleEarth it comes up as 1-2 Logan Place as some kind of theatre. Did Mary sell the house do you think? I felt so bad when I read that she forced Jiim Hutton out of the house after Freddie died despite the fact that he told her he wanted him to be able to stay as long as he liked. She got rid of Joe (the cook I think) immediately because she hated him. Peter Freestone who was with Freddie for 12 years as his assistant was also turned out to The Mews away from the house. Jim loved Freddie and I think Freddie was much in love with him. He was not allowed to ride in the front funeral car as Mary ordered him not to ride with her. In an interview with OK magazine date March 17, 2000 she said his frieds that woroked in the house o left her - she did not know why but felt because Freddie was so kind to them. That is a directly opposite what many, many friends indicated.
Tucked away in a small back street in Kensington, this is the house where Freddie Mercury lived and died.
You can't really see much (hence the rating) but people manage to leave their messages on the wooden door and the walls of the property.
