You’ve got to know where to draw the line. The public always come first. It’s a corny thing to say, but I mean it. I know how to get the best out of me, and I would always find what talent I had and push that forward to try and gain some kind of recognition and success out of it. I’m in much more command of myself these days because I know what I want and what I don’t want. I live for tomorrow. Fuck today, it’s tomorrow. I’m not going to listen to people telling me how I should react. Nobody tells me what to do.

Freddie Mercury: “Quite easily. ‘Cause I’d still be the same person, I’d still be the same person. My life-style doesn’t suddenly stop because… I’ve always been like this, I’ve always been like this. Success does help, you know, and I just, you know, it makes easier to be outrageous or whatever. But I mean that doesn’t stop me. If all my money ended tomorrow, I would still be the same person, I’d still go about the same way, like I had lots of money. That’s what I used to do before. That’s something inbred, that’s part of me and I’ll always, I’ll always walk around like a Persian Popinjay and no one’s going to stop me, honey”

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, Is This The World We Created?, it’s 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.

To be honest, let’s be open about it, all us rock stars still want to be in the limelight, and this is going to showcase us. Ok we’re helping out, but from the other point of view, it’s going to be a worldwide audience; an all-over simultaneous broadcast. That’s what we’re all about as well and we shouldn’t forget that. I doubt there is one artist that’s going to appear who hasn’t realised that fact. So there’s that to consider as well.

I don’t think I’d be doing it out of guilt. Even if I didn’t do it, the poverty would still be there. It’s something that will always be there. We’ll do all we can do to help because it’s a wonderful thing. But as far as I’m concerned, I’m doing it out of pride. It’s something to be proud of; that I’m actually in with all the ‘Biggies’ – all the biggest stars – and that I can do something worthwhile. Yes, I’m proud more than anything. Sometimes you do feel helpless, and I think this is my way of showing that I can do my bit. And that’s as far as I want to go.

I’ve always been serious, but I still have a flippant nature. I suppose being older now, you look upon it in a more sedate way.

It’s something that I instinctively don’t think about. I also think that if you worry about it too often, it does actually age you. I’m not worried about wrinkles and things like that.

I don’t get up every morning and rush to the mirror and see how many lines I’ve got. That’s the best way to do it, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t worry. I mean, you’re going to get old, you’ll look old, and that’s the way it is, no matter how many creams you use. It’s just not me.

There’s nothing one can do about it. I’m not afraid of looking old. It’s how you feel inside that matters. It sounds so clichéd, I know. And I am not worried about getting fat – in fact I’d love to put on a bit of weight and be a bit plump. I’m not bad for 39, not bad at all. And no facelifts here. There are probably people looking for tucks when they lift my hair back, but no, there is no plastic surgery here!

I’m possessed by love! Isn’t Everybody? I seem to write a lot of sad songs because I’m a very tragic person. But there is always an element of humour at the end.

“I don’t have a record collection. I listen to the radio and sometimes just stumble upon things I like. I don’t go out of my way to seek out new music. I love Aretha Franklin to death but otherwise I’m not a very good record buyer. I can get a buzz out of all kinds of things. Just listening to music is a kind of fever for me.”
