Interviewer: You can’t be in this “job” of Queen for life, can you?
Freddie: Ah, you want me to put a deadline on it now. I don’t know. Five years ago you could have asked me the same question and I couldn’t tell you. It could all end tomorrow. I’m not afraid of it. It’s a precarious life, but I think I like it that way. I like it a little risky. Okay, so I’m quite well off, but money in the bank doesn’t mean anything to me. I spend it as quickly as it comes. I could be penniless tomorrow, but I wouldn’t care that much. I have this survival instinct in me.
