“They recreated it so incredibly true to the original, and being on that set was really scary it brought it all back. And at the time we weren’t aware of what a landmark thing it really was. We came out and thought, “Well, that was kind of okay” But we didn’t notice that it made such a lasting impression on made the ether”… It lives on somehow, doesn’t it?”

He praised Mercury’s talents, adding, “He had a great spatial awareness, and that is something very important

“When you work with people on stage you need to have musical contact, but you also need the kind of physical chemistry – awareness of where you are and where you are directing your energy”Freddie was wonderful for that and we just clicked”
