The very first time we met Freddie was when he came to one of our gigs. He said, ‘You guys are great, great, great, you are really, really brilliant , but you should do this and you should do that, you should be more of a dramatic act, you should have more lights, more sound…’. Okay Freddie!

We were like, who is this guy? We said what are you? Freddie said, ‘Well, I’m a singer darling, I’m a singer.’

Oh really. Okay, fine! He kept turning up to our gigs and saying the same things.

We were getting into difficult ground, we were getting no where, we were a band called ‘Smile.’

Our singer got enticed away from us by some group called ‘Humpy Bong’ and he went off to the big time.

We were thinking ‘great, what the hell are we going to do’ and at that moment Freddie said, ‘I’ll sing for you.’

I said, ‘Can you even sing?’ He said, ‘Yes, of course, I can sing.’ We got together and practiced. Our first impression of Freddie was ‘Oh My God!’ He was very ebullient, very exuberant and his way of delivery was just dashing around the whole time and screaming his head off. So, we were a bit taken back. We thought okay, he means well.

So, after a few rehearsals and we played a couple of exploratory gigs, we realized that this Freddie guy could sing and he had a lot of great ideas. It was Roger, myself and Freddie at this point. We had gone through a number of bass players. We had a hard time finding a bass player who had the right sort of spirit for us. We went through about a dozen. Then we found John Deacon. We all just seemed to click and somehow in a moment, Queen was born.

It obviously changed all of our lives. I don’t think any of us realized quite where it would take us. It’s amazing looking back. We were just kids. We were young people with dreams. Impossible dreams, really. We thought, we could change the world.
