According to an article about the late Queen icon Freddie Mercury and his unique lifestyle, Freddie was about to involve in a supergroup with the legendary musicians, Sir Elton John and Rod Stewart.
As you may recall, Queen’s legendary lead singer Freddie Mercury sadly passed away in 1991 at the age of 45. The cause of Freddie’s death was revealed as bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.
Recently, Udiscovermusic published an article and revealed some rarely known facts about Queen’s Freddie Mercury. It was suggested in the article that Freddie was actually considering forming a band with Sir Elton John and Rod Stewart at some point in his music career.
According to Mercury’s own statements, he spent a night with John and Stewart drinking a lot of wine. Apparently, while drinking wine and talking about music, the iconic musicians came up with the idea of forming a supergroup named ‘Hair, Nose, and Teeth.’
However, the other day, when they sobered up, the idea seemed not great and Elton John was the first one who decided not to go with that. When Elton said he didn’t want to sing with Rod Stewart, Rod also asserted he didn’t want to sing with Freddie. Therefore, their plans for forming a band never actualized.
Here’s what Freddie Mercury stated about the possible supergroup with Elton John:
“Rod Stewart, Elton John and I were going to form a band, once upon a time, called Hair, Nose And Teeth – after the three of us… It’s nice when you’ve had a lot of wine and you talk about it and say, ‘Yes, let’s do it,’ but the next day, when you’re sober and Elton says, ‘I’m not gonna sing with Rod,’ and Rod says, ‘I’m not gonna sing with Freddie,’ and I say, ‘Well, I’m not gonna sing with Elton!’ you realize it’s never going to happen.”
