These are some of the pairs of stereoscopic photos that Peter Neutkens made. We are at the hotel entrance signing autographs quite patiently. I’m sure we didn’t always have it. There aren’t many pictures of Freddie signing autographs, he didn’t really like doing it. He was very focused on his priorities, which he was quite clear about. Today things are a bit different. Everyone wants an autograph, to take selfies on the phone, and also want you to talk to their mother on the phone. Do not even think about it!” — Brian May.⠀

I find this quote quite weird since Peter Freestone has always said Freddie barely said no to autographs or photos but oh well! I guess it was different while touring which I can understand since I’m sure he was exhausted and it must be annoying having to stop every two steps to sign autographs . ⠀

  1. Hello Freddie congratulations and

  2. Hmm…i think i recognize Freddie Mercury’s yellow vest with the word Champion that he is wearing when he was signing autographs for fans outside his hotel in Vienna on 21st July 1986. He later wore that when he was signing autographs for fans at the Spanish airport and at the last Queen concert at Knebworth Park in August 1986. Am i right?
