The guitarist and also the co-founding member of Queen, Brian May, was recently interviewed by Kevin O’Sullivan’s self-titled show and talked about various topics including how did they get over Freddie Mercury’s death and his ongoing interest in astrophysics.
As you might already follow up on the history of Queen that after Freddie Mercury passed away, the band members were so hesitant to continue without Freddie. The band could not present anything new for the fans for over four years after his death, even though they had lots of unreleased records of the late Queen star.
In a recent interview, while opening about finishing his doctorate in astrophysics, Brian May was also asked about how the band managed to resurrect and continue without the late icon. According to Brian, the key to get over Freddie’s death was sticking together and convince every single member of the band not to leave Queen.
At the and of the interview, Brian opened about his longing for one of his best friends in the world, and he admitted that he misses him every single day of the week. He also shared how challenging it was to be on the stage with a remarkable performer like Freddie and talked about the feelings he had while they were performing together.
Let’s see what he said about it first:
“Challenging, and always entertaining. You know, he’s a very unpredictable guy, but wonderful to work with. He had great spatial awareness.
And that’s something important if you’re working with people on a stage you need to have the sort of musical contact, but you also need the kind of physical chemistry going on, the awareness of where you are and where you’re aiming your energy, and Freddie was wonderful for that.
We just clicked from the very beginning, from the days when he was very much a sort of a trainee singer, but he had all the presentation, he had that connection and it was his amazing kind of skill that he managed to bring himself up to the point where he was using his talent to the best end.
He really did work on himself, he’s an incredible self-made man, I would say.”
At last, Kevin O’Sullivan asked the crucial question to Brian:
“Do you miss him?”
Brian May responded with a simple and powerful answer:
“Of course, every day.”
