"We’ve just had one of the best tours we’ve ever done. And we’re just back. And we had such an incredible time, and we got this amazing singer, and it’s a good show. We thought we’d carry on and do Europe and UK.” -Roger Taylor x

The band actually plays the music better than we ever did. Or, maybe ‘better’ isn’t the right word. But they play a more perfect version, with a more polished sound, whereas we always used to go off and play around with the music when we were in concert.

It’s great to be here, back in front of the crowds. I’m really looking forward to the shows out here. I’m a musician first and foremost and I’ve got such passion to perform, so it’s great to be here doing it for the fans.

I don’t think we ever made money on tour until 1986. Because in addition to working our way up the levels, we always spent too much on the show. We were always into our toys and lights and sound and production. We were always living beyond our means, which was fun to do. But we didn’t care. We didn’t really have our eye on how much money we were making, we were just enjoying the trip, really.

"Maybe this is just Freddie Mercury-related, but comedian Cleo Rocos writes in her book, "The Power of Positive Drinking," about a night she hung out with Princess Diana, Kenny Everett and Mercury. Watching “The Golden Girls,” they lowered the volume and acted out a more lewd plotline with Princess Diana as Dorothy and Mercury as Sophia. After that fun ended, Mercury mentioned to Princess Diana that the three of them were going to a notorious gay bar called Vauxhall Tavern in London. Princess Diana insisted on coming despite pleads from Everett and Rocos. Mercury said, “Go on, let the girl have some fun. Can you imagine?”
Princess Diana ended up disguising herself as a “rather eccentrically dressed gay male model.” Nobody recognized her as she ordered a white wine and a beer. The princess and Mercury apparently giggled like “naughty school children.”” -The Huffington Post, excerpt by Todd Van Luling x

This fact may be wrong. According to Peter Freestone, it is. Although it is very realistic that it could have happened.

As I remember … he actually wasn’t very keen on riding his bicycle (if he even had one!) — he preferred being driven in a Rolls Royce! But he created a character in the song, and this character can say what he wants, and he can ride his bicycle where he likes!

We were looking for great, unbelievably talented musicians and that’s what we’ve got. We were also really lucky to find someone who sounds just like Freddie. If you closed your eyes, you would think he was there. Even I do and I’ve spent half of my life playing with him. It’s spine-chilling to hear him.
