“it may have been real life, but touring the world with Freddie Mercury felt more like fantasy-
We played our last shows with Fred in 1986, though at the time I never expected them to be our last shows – none of us did. None of us could foresee that he was going to get ill and die so soon. Saying that we missed Fred doesn’t even begin to explain what we felt at the time, and still feel today.
That was especially true when Brian May and I started work on our new album (Made in Heaven), which includes stuff we recorded when Fred was still with us. You can imagine what it was like, listening to him in the studio. Just thinking about it sends shivers down my spine. What a voice!” 💛
