Interviewer : You’ve had 80 million sold around the world with Queen.
What makes you want to do something like this which is a very big risk for you, isn’t it ?
To stick your neck out there and stand up alone without other musicians ?

Freddie Mercury: “That’s the way I like to live.
Yes, firstly if I didn’t do this I don’t have anything to do. You know, I can’t cook, I’m not very good at being a housewife, it’s just in my blood. I seem to have been doing this for so long that it’s so in my blood, I don’t know what else to do. I’d be very vulnerable and I wouldn’t know what to do, so I think I just have to keep doing it. It’s not having to keep doing it, of course. I’ve made a lot of money. I could live beautifully and wonderfully for the rest of my life but, the way I live is I have to be doing something every day.
I want to earn my keep and I want to be doing something. I have a nervous energy that needs to be doing something. I can’t relax in bed all day and just do nothing. I think it’s a waste of time. I hardly read books. I think that is a waste of time. People are going to kill me for this. But it’s just a nervous energy that I have and I just basically write music and I want to keep doing that, I have a lot of songs and I enjoy doing them, see, it’s come to a stage where before I felt it was my work, it’s still my work, now. I just feel it’s something I enjoy doing, you know, it’s very interesting.
There are lots of challenges ahead and like you said earlier on, this is another step for me and a new challenge and I’m, you know, going to receive it with open arms”
