During one of the visits to the Pikes Hotel in Ibiza, Tony Pike persuaded Freddie to get out in his speedboat, which he proudly boasted of being the fastest on the island. Someone could argue with me but I don’t think freddie could swim. Therefore he still seemed a little uncomfortable in the water.

As the boat was firmly anchored off Formenterra, and we all plunged into the crystal clear sea, Freddie stayed firmly on board.

The day was finally ruined when Tony Pike finally presented Freddie with an invoice for the excursion that Fred had never expected the way he had been invited. He thought Tony was just nice.

Whenever a friend of his considered a stay at pike’s he would say “lovely my dear, beautiful place but be careful if he asks you to go out on that damn boat!”

Early Queen Gig: December 21, 1973, The band performed at County Ballroom in Taunton, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Roger Taylor recalled this show in 1999. “We used to play a place called the County Ballroom in Taunton. It would be packed, and then we’d go back three weeks later and it would be even more packed.”

Queen actually only played this venue twice, the second date being a few months later. (March 30, 1974)

except two, when we were in different countries. We’d meet usually on Christmas Eve, nights which ended up with drunken but happy carolling sessions, always exaggerated of course and sometimes with Freddie on piano. We did our separate things on Christmas day and then there was always a party once again on Boxing Day, mostly at his place, which went on until dawn broke. I don’t know how we found the energy then but the talk and the laughs just went on and on and on until we’d either drop exhausted or go our separate ways. That was the first thing I felt when I came to London at Christmas in 1991. There was a void. Something wasn’t the same. That Christmas, only a few weeks after his death, was the first time it struck me that Freddie really wasn’t there any longer and I couldn’t believe it. I called on Mary Austin and went out with Straker and spent my usual Christmas day with my family but despite the fun and merriment, there was always this vague, gnawing, empty feeling. I remembered the previous Christmas when Freddie and I had sat alone for a couple of hours, just chatting while everyone else had gone out. Freddie was virtually lecturing me to look after myself and to avoid the excesses. “We’re too old for all that shit any more, dear and it’s boring when you’ve done it all.” We hugged and kissed goodbye a few hours later and now I only have memories. Good memories. Fun memories, lifted up into that caravan of extravagance and carried along with never-ending laughs through all the excesses. I’ll miss him forever but he’ll always be there for the good things never go away.”

Queen facts: ….

On the 14th of December in 1980, Queen performed in the ‘Festhalle’ in Frankfurt, Germany…

🤘Brian plays the wrong chord on the piano at
the beginning of ‘Save Me’, causing him to
hesitate a bit.
Freddie has to stop for a moment until he figures out where Brian is.🙄😂

🤘Brian, after ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’:
“I have very little to say, except you’re probably the best audience in the western world.
The loudest, anyway.”
Much applause ensues, of course.
“This better be good, I tell you. You gotta sing this pretty good. This is called ‘Love Of My Life’.”

🤘The band play ‘Imagine’ once again, as they did
the night after John Lennon was shot.
