Freddie, are you the leader of the band?
The lead singer usually is….
“Ah, yes, we used to be, that’s a bygone age. Modern-day people in my position called themselves the focal point, dear. Unless your name is Rod Stewart and you have a backing band – no way is this Freddie Mercury and his backing band. When you analyse it, the four of us make the whole thing work. It’s 25 per cent, and I’m the one upfront, that’s all.”
