“Freddie was always interested in music. The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix were his favourites, he was always playing air guitar and doing Hendrix impersonations. He used to do a sort of showbiz stance. We thought he was joking around to amuse us. We used to call him Freddie Baby, and he used to say, ‘Don’t you worry, I’ll be big one of these days. I’ll be a real star’. No one believed him, because no one had heard him sing at that point”

Queen August 27, 1982 – The band performed at The Myriad in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA with Billy Squier. Hot Space Tour

The wonderful review of the show said, “Queen and their lights kept the audience of nearly 10,000 people standing on their chairs during the 85 minute concert. Queen’s light show deserves special notice. It always offered something new and never interfered with the performance. Yet what makes these lights stand out is that they were four additional members of the band.

Queen has been playing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody for six years now. Mercury, at the piano, sang it and played it as if it was his first time, intense in the soft moments, breaking into the rocking climax.

Queen saved their three biggest hits for the encore, crowning the evening with, ‘Another One Bites The Dust,’ ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions,’ all performed with enthusiasm.

Queen exhibits untapped emotions in their heavily produced studio material when presenting it on stage. With sophisticated technology floating above them, Queen gave the Myriad audience an unpretentious, simple yet talented rock ‘n’ roll performance.

Freddie never expressed any desire to have children to me at any time. That is not to say he disliked children, he spent time, in the later years with a few. I don’t think he could have accepted the responsibility of taking time out of his life to look after them. He saw, particularly with his bandmates on tour, exactly what was required of them as parents. He did enjoy being around them for a while,but was always happy to ‘hand them back’ at the end of a visit. You must also remember his house was full of valuable objets d’art, many on coffee tables that would be within easy reach of enquiring young hands. He never dreamed of going round the house putting things away before any visit, he just expected the children to be well behaved, and most of them were!

We do know Freddie was amazing with children and he became a godfather to a couple of very special children, Reinhold Mack’s son along with John Deacon – Little Freddie and Mary’s oldest son – Richard. He was always fond of all of his friends children
