I’ll carry on as long as I write music and people want to buy it. That’s important to me, but it’s not the be all and end all. I’m not going to be one of those old hams that keep going and going. I’d rather leave it at the top. I want to carry on doing what I am doing, but there’s a price to pay and I’m quite prepared to pay it. To me, what I do is priority and it’s what I love doing. Music is the thing that keeps me together. It’s like a shield for me – my musical abilities. I can fend off all kinds of things. So it’s like a battle all the time, but I don’t mind as long as I win through. I’ve built a structure, a kind of musical belief in myself, and that keeps me going. This is in my blood. The only thing I can do is to write music and perform, and that’s what I’m going to be doing – I think that’s what all of us are going to be doing, until we die…..

It’s not a question of having to keep doing it, of course – I’ve made a lot of money and I could live beautifully and wonderfully for the rest of my life – but the way I live is that I have to be doing something every day. I have a nervous energy that needs to be doing something. There’s a voice inside me saying, “Slow down, you’ll burn yourself out!” but I can’t stop. I basically write music and I want to keep doing that. I have a lot of songs and I enjoy doing them. You see, it’s come to a stage where before, I felt it was my work, my job, and though it’s still my work now, I don’t have to do it. I feel it’s something I enjoy doing and it’s very interesting. There are still lots of challenges ahead and I’m going to receive them with open arms.

Brian and I were thinking about poverty going on all around the world and that’s why the track “Is This The World We Created” came about. I think for Live Aid we’re actually going to do that as a special thing, right at the end. It’s very odd, but we composed that particular song well before the Live Aid project, but it seems to fit in quite well. It was about the suffering and starvation of children all over the planet, and it matched the situation so well that we decided it was definitely one song we would do. I tell you, when it comes to that duet, this song is an integral part of what’s going on, and the song seems to convey a lot of what the event is about. I think that’s probably going to bring tears to my eyes when we do it. I’ll have to make sure I do it properly. It’s amazing. The first line is, “Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed.” I can’t believe it. It’s as if someone actually asked us to write a song for this event, but we had one already. Actually, it was Jim Beach’s idea. Because it was there, all written, and that’s why they’ve given us a special spot. I wouldn’t like to say I wrote all the lyrics, Brian helped, but I remember most of the lyrics of that song are mine, Brian probably did help with a line here and there.

—Freddie in his own words

This song was written as a last minute replacement for “There Must Be More To Life Than This” which had been written in 1981 and intended for the Hot Space album and again for The Works as the album closer. Freddie was reportedly inspired to write this song after viewing a documentary on television about poverty in Africa.

This beautiful song was part of the finale at Live Aid and sure fits our world now.

“Freddie told me he had AIDS soon after he was diagnosed in 1987. I was devastated. I had seen what the disease had done to so many of my other friends. I knew exactly what it was going to do to Freddie. As did he. He knew death, agonising death, was coming. But Freddie was incredibly courageous.

He kept up appearances, he kept performing with Queen, and he kept being the funny, outrageous and profoundly generous person he had always been.

As Freddie deteriorated in the late 1980s and early ’90s, it was almost too much to bear. It broke my heart to see this absolute light unto the world ravaged by AIDS. By the end, he was lying in bed, too weak to stand, losing his sight, but, he was still definitely Freddie, gossiping away, completely outrageous:, ‘Have you heard Mrs Bowie’s new album, darling? What does she think she’s doing? Freddie Mercury was an amazing and innovatory singer. A great showman and one of my best friends. It is a privilege to have been close to him, he was very funny and at the same time completely excessive and extravagant but also very kind. I always had the best time with him. “
