“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.”

FREDDIE MERCURY AND FREDDIE MACK

Freddie Mercury QuoteIn terms of the press, I’m a very hated person.

Freddie Mercury QuoteIn terms of the press, I’m a very hated person.

In terms of the press, I’m a very hated person. But I hate the press as well, so that goes both ways. Some papers want a certain kind of news, and it can wreck peoples lives. I think I’ve learned to live with it after all these years. I’d be a liar to say I’m not hurt by criticism, because everybody is. Of course I want everybody to say I’m wonderful and like my songs, and I don’t mind genuine well thought out criticism, but of course you’re going to get people who review our albums without even listening to them, and things like that. That’s the way of the world. I used to get really mad and start tearing my hair out, but I don’t have sleepless nights anymore. I learned to live with it. You need to be a strong- willed, astute person to survive in this industry. I never let the press worry me. Let them all come!

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.

Queen are attracting new fans, teenagers, even people in their 20s and 30s. What do you think of this phenomenon?

Roger Taylor: It is a phenomenon, it is great. I think it’s fantastic to have a new public for us. We are an old band and we had great times back in the 70s, 80s and 90s. But to think now, 50 years later, a lot of very young people really discovering our music for the first time, it’s fantastic, it gives me a very good feeling.

What do you think attracts people to Queen?

Roger: I personally think it’s good music, it has quality. And I think the musicianship is good, I think the singing is good and the composition is good. It may not be everybody’s cup of tea, we aren’t everybody’s favorite style. But some of the songs have an anthemic, grand occasion kind of feel and I think that translates to people.

Queen is Timeless!
