May 22, 1975, Freddie Mercury is presented with his first Ivor Novello Award from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors for his amazing song, ‘𝗞𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝗲𝗻.‘
“We’re very proud of ‘Killer Queen.’ It’s just one of the tracks I wrote for the album to be honest. It wasn’t written as a single. I just wrote a batch of songs for the Sheer Heart Attack album and when I finished writing it, and when we recorded it, we found it was a very, very strong single. It really was. At that time it was very, very unlike Queen. They all said: ‘Awwwwwww.’ It was another risk that we took you know. Every risk we’ve taken so far has paid off.”
Freddie Mercury – Record Mirror 21 May 1976
“This is a perfect pop record and one of Freddie’s greatest songs. It’s beautifully constructed and it’s also got one of the solos I’m most proud of.”
Brian May Q magazine March 2008:
Killer Queen soared all the way to number 2 on the UK singles charts.
I’m sure Freddie kept his Moet et Chandon in a pretty cabinet awaiting the celebration. ♥️👑🥂
