Interview 1981

So have you any responsibility to an audience once they’ve bought the album or left the theatre?

In what way? My responsibility to the audience is to put on a good show. They make sure they get good, strong entertainment from Queen in whatever form, whether on record or in concert or on television, and that’s that.

Do you believe musicians play better when they’re hungry? Or now, because you are financially rich, is there a relaxation because you have no money worries? What are the difficulties?

You can play good when you’re struggling and I think you can play good when you’ve made it, as well. It’s a different kind of thing. I mean, when I go on stage, whether I’m rich or starving, I want to give my all. I want to go on there and die for the show! If I have a broken leg or a million pounds or am up to my eyes in debt, I just want to perform. Even having a cold has nothing to do with it – get out there and prove, from what’s inside you, that the act and the audience is the thing.

Freddie in his own words

“My parents were very strict. They thought boarding school would do me good. So, when I was about seven, I was put in one in India for a while,” recalled Mercury. “That background helped me a lot, because it taught me to fend for myself from a very early age, and to be responsible. It was an upheaval of an upbringing, which seems to have worked, I guess.”

Brian about Freddie

June 10, 2020   Seraja   1

“Freddie was largely his own man; He made a very early decision in his life that he would do things his way, and what we felt. He was going to manage his own life, and he would manage his own attitude towards what he was suffering towards the final era of his business. So, in some ways, that gagged us, which was difficult for us. We can also find without being able to talk about it with your friends. “Now that is a bit high.”
