Queen guitarist Brian May discussed the band’s ‘final moments’ with Freddie Mercury as he tragically was dying from AIDS in his last few years in a new interview. Brian May ‘Didn’t Know’ Freddie Mercury Liked Men.
The Classic Rock interviewer asked, “What’s your favourite memory of Freddie during his last few years?”
May responded, “We had a wonderful time in Montreux, because we were away from prying eyes. We were a real family at that point. We didn’t let anybody in. We didn’t want anybody to molest Freddie in what were to be his last moments, though we weren’t sure if they were his last moments at that point, because you have this kind of disbelief.
Even though the evidence is in front of your eyes, you don’t believe he’s going to go. But it was a wonderful time. We were more supportive of each other in those last few years than ever before.” Queen were able to record The Miracle in 1989 and Innuendo in 1991 prior to Freddie’s death, and even recorded a few new songs in his final months that later appeared on 1995’s Made in Heaven.
