Freddie came into the studio one day and announced that as he had a cold, his doctor had forbade him to drink vodka, his usual tipple. As we digested this information, he added quickly: ‘So get me a brandy!’.
Being with him, I never realised how big he was. I’d never seen him as this rock mega-star. I just saw him as my mate, Fred. If I could do it all over again, all those years with them, I totally would, and I guess all ‘the family’, as they called their staff, would say the same.”
