In a recent interview with Louder Sound, Queen guitarist Brian May has reacted to someone commenting on the “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie as anonymous.
“The film ends with Queen playing Live Aid in 1985. Was there a temptation to go beyond that?”
Brian May responded:
“No. I think there’s a natural culmination there. And that has pretty much always been the case, from the earliest scripts. We felt that was the pinnacle – despite what some people have said in the press, who know fuck-all about it.
Somebody who shall be nameless said: “Oh, they’re going to portray Freddie dying in the middle of the movie, and then the rest of it is gonna be about life without Freddie.” Well, complete bullshit. This is all about Freddie, and I think Live Aid is a good point to leave it. Who knows, there might be a sequel [laughs].”
Interviewer asked ‘do you think Freddie would have approved of and liked the film?’ and Brian said:
“I do. I think he would have felt it was a fair cop, really. It shows all his greatness and all his fallibility and insecurity – the whole bit. I think it shows him very truthfully and not sycophantically, but in a way that appreciates his talent.
Because he was sure was unique. I’ve never met anybody like Freddie in my life, before or since, and it’s probably not going to happen again.”
