Queen Forever: Five Intriguing Facts About Freddie Mercury

Published

on

When it comes to outstanding vocalists, very few come close to Freddie Mercury.  The Queen frontman influenced countless musicians with his indescribable stage presence. Even after his death, Mercury’s spirit lives on in classic tunes like “We Are The Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”. These five facts will help you understand this remarkable talent even better.

I Want To Break Free

Princess Diana and Mercury became close friends over time. The singer once snuck Diana in a bar by dressing her like a man. “When we walked in … we felt she was obviously Princess Diana and would be discovered at any minute. But people just seemed to blank her,” Cleo Rocos stated in the book The Power of Positive Drinking.

Another One Bites The Dust

A collaboration between Mercury and Michael Jackson was a fantasy for pop music fans. The two were working on some music in between touring. Things between the two suddenly halted, but it wasn’t because of creative differences. It was because of M.J.’s llama, Louie, who would always accompany him in the studio. A duet version of “There Must Be More to Life Than This” was officially released on Queen Forever.

You’re My Best Friend

Cats were Mercury’s animal of choice. He once had 10 cats walking around his home. For his first solo album, Mr. Bad Guy, several songs are about his felines. The liner notes for the record further showcased Mercury’s love of cats. “This album is dedicated to my cat Jerry – also Tom, Oscar and Tiffany, and all the cat lovers across the universe – screw everybody else!” he said.

Love Of My Life

During the ’70s, Mercury was in a relationship with Mary Austin, who was the subject of numerous Queen songs. “The only friend I’ve got is Mary, and I don’t want anybody else,” he once said. Upon his death, the singer left his royalties and home to Austin in his will.

Don’t Stop Me Now

Mercury was already severely ill while recording 1991’s Innuendo. Because of his illness, Brian May was skeptical if Mercury could actually lay down vocals for “The Show Must Go On.” The frontman simply drank some vodka and did his vocals in one take. Six weeks before his death, the song was released as a single.
