Freddie about to throw flowers to the crowd during the Hot Space Tour in 1982.
: Neal Preston During the early days, the Queen front man started a tradition that he looked to continue, even when he was playing stadiums.

 In a bid to share his peace and love, Freddie would spend some of the final song of their set by giving out roses to his fans.

 Such was his thoughtfulness, he ensured that every thorn of the rose’s stem were trimmed of thorns, so not to prick the fingers of the grateful recipients.

Former Queen bassist Barry Mitchell attended one of these two gigs at Imperial College.

The pictures are taken from Mick Rock’s superb “Killer Queen” book. There is now a different (and much more affordable) version of this book called “Classic Queen” available through Amazon and elsewhere.

An audience recording of this show exists (or once existed)

.Freddie never had children of his own but he did have one godchildren. He was the godfather of Reinhold Mack’s son, John Frederick Mack.

Since I didn’t find a lot of information on John Deacon’s children with Freddie, I wanted to add two quotes that I read online and made me smile, specially Freddie’s one.

“John and Freddie were opposites really because John is so shy and he was the youngest in the band. Freddie took him under his wing and they were very close for all those years.” — Jacky Smith (who ran Queen fan club for 37 years).

“He’s sort of quiet, lots of people think that, but don’t underestimate him, he’s got a fiery streak under all that.” — Freddie about John.

I distinctly remember walking in the gate and going into Freddie’s little room where he had a Dansette record player, an auto changer.

The vinyl records that went on it were quite magical. I distinctly remember him putting the record on – it was a Jimi Hendrix record, I think it was Axis: Bold As Love – and he goes ‘Brian, Brian, Brian, listen, listen, listen.’ And I go, ‘yes, it’s Jimi Hendrix, we love Jimi Hendrix, he’s magic.’

And he goes, ‘no, no – listen to what they do in the production. See this guitar comes around here and if you come around to this speaker it comes around here. They’re panning it around, they’re moving it around. This is the kind of thing we have to do, this is what we’re gonna do.’

And at that time I thought, ‘well, can you sing?’ We had no idea – we’d seen Freddie in the very early stages where he ran around a lot and was a big, declamatory star, but he didn’t do much singing.

He did a lot of wonderful posing around and some rather kind of excited, shouty kind of singing, but you couldn’t imagine that this person was going to become the wonderful, glittering and superbly controlled performer that Freddie became.
