I don’t think we even realized that Freddie is a bit of a genius

I don’t think we even realized that Freddie is a bit of a genius, really; a pretty eccentric kind of genius. And you wouldn’t have thought it if you met him in the street or in Kensington market around 1970. You’d just thought, ‘A strange guy… obviously thinks he’s a rock star.’ But he had an incredible belief in himself, incredible drive, and he stood for no-nonsense. 

Nothing would ever get in his way of achieving what he wanted to achieve. So I take that as an example even now because we’re all people-pleasers, aren’t we? We think, ‘Oh, I like to do this but I don’t want to do that because that might upset this person.’ 

Freddie was never like that. He said, ‘I want to do this, I’m going to do this. If you don’t want me to do it, get out of my way.’ And some people might have found him rude, but generally Freddie achieved what he did because he was so focused and had so much belief. Pretty fantastic voice as well. A gift from God, obviously.” (Brian May BBC Radio 2021)

‘Freddie is the quintessential lead singer in rock & roll. The fire and glue that holds Queen together.’ (Circus 1980) 

“Freddie is simply a genius, the band owes him everything!” (Bravo 1979)
