I can’t relax in bed all day and just do nothing. I hardly read books because I think that’s a waste of time. I relax in ways most people can’t understand, by just sleeping on a plane when I’m flying for 20 minutes. That’s all the relaxation I need. I don’t need tons of sleep, i can get by on three or four hours sleep a night. That’s enough for me. I recharge my batteries in that short a time and I’m up again.
Freddie Mercury, ” A life in his own words”.
So why is it, 35 years later, Queen’s set is the most lauded? Partly because it marked the comeback of a rock icon, Freddie Mercury, who had something to prove when he took the Live Aid stage.
“Freddie was mesmerizing,” says Lesley-Ann Jones, who was at the show and later authored “Mercury: An Intimate Biography of Freddie Mercury.” “He seemed to summon the brilliance of every great performance artist who had gone before.”
On the anniversary of one of the biggest concerts in rock history, we look back at Queen’s unrivaled performance.
