Gallery update Candids Freddie with Freddie Mack

“Freddie was at my older brother Julian’s 12th birthday in his ‘Hard Life’ costume. I called Freddie ‘Ga Ga’ because of ‘Radio Ga Ga,’ it was the hit of the time.

When ‘Ga Ga’ came over, I actually was disappointed, I was expecting stage costumes, crowds and cheering…He would always say, ‘Sorry darling, I’m actually quite boring. This is me. This is it.’”

“My uncle Freddie gave me this huge teddy bear. It’s been everywhere I’ve been and now it’s home with my family and I see the same huge smile on my old girls face when she tackles this huge, entity of a bear (a pic of the bear is below) Freddie was a proud godfather!”

“He was at our house a lot during my childhood when he lived in Munich. If he was in London, he’d just fly over. We were the surrogate family for Freddie. We gave him that glimpse of domestic family life. He could move about here without being stopped all of the time. He was away from the party scene. It was a place he could retreat and just be himself without the need to perform in anyway. He was comfortable…

Even to this day, we still talk about ‘Uncle Freddie’ basically every time I sit down with anyone in my family.”

15 December 1977, Queen performed @ The Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts, Las Vegas, Nevada “News of The World” Tour

The entire first floor of the building was a casino. The band’s limos had no alternative but to drive through between the rows of slot machines to get to the theatre in the back!

This gig in Las Vegas was one of the shows Bob Harris and his crew had intended to film for his documentary (though the footage has not been seen).

The film crew fly home after the fabulous Houston gig, Bob Harris remains and travels with the band to the next venue, in Las Vegas, where additional interview material is recorded, and where they have fun.

The filming provides Harris with an unusually close inspection of Queen off-guard and he largely approves of the view. He becomes especially close to Roger and they goes on a three-day binge in Las Vegas where they vow to have at least one drink in every bar and hotel. 😁

“It was the era of self indulgence. They each had their own limo and sometimes it would have been easier to walk to the venues from the hotels but that wasn’t Queen’s style. Freddie was theatrical but not hostile or aggressive. They were all very courteous. I cannot remember a single moment when there was a bad atmosphere. The four days I was in Vegas, I had a fabulous time, sightseeing and club-hopping with Roger Taylor and his minder. We gambled lightly, drank heavily and saw a couple of wet t-shirt competitions.

Freddie Mercury at Queen’s post party at the Aladdin Casino in Las Vegas December 15, 1977

“Only a select group of trusted photographers were permitted to photograph Queen’s performances and their photo sessions as they very controlled. I was invited to an exclusive post-concert party at Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas back in 1977. I was there with my pal Rodney Bingenheimer and we were welcomed with open arms. I had this wonderful dinner, we sat by Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor. I knew Freddie was really camera shy so I only took a few pics, he hated to have these taken. Freddie was not one to mug for the camera. He was cool about it though. I was really shy too and I didn’t want to bother him. We were treated like kings. Concerts sometimes were a bore to shoot, but not with Freddie Mercury at a Queen gig. We will always miss you Freddie!”

13 December 1974, Queen performed @ Palacio de los Deportes de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸

“Sheer Heart Attack” Tour

This is the last show of the European tour, bringing an end to a successful year for the band.

In a 1979 interview, Brian May said he had good memories of this show, their first in Spain.

“Well, on stage I just click. To be honest, performing comes quite easily realty. It doesn’t take me that much. I mean, I know it sounds conceited and there are a lot of setbacks and a lot of strains and nerves, but not nearly as much as there used to be. Now we are a headline band we know people have come to see us. Being support is one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.”
