Freddie was the most musical of all of us. He was trained on the piano, and he could write on the black notes. He said, ‘We’re never going to get anywhere playing all this three-chord blues crap, we’ll have to write some songs’. A couple of things came out of it, but they’ve all vanished now. I can’t imagine that they would have been very satisfactory anyway.
Freddie knew where he wanted to go. That’s why he was such a huge international star. This was no accident. It happened because that’s exactly what he wanted to be from the moment I first met him. He was brilliant, a man with a goal and a drive!
