Cytaty Freddie Mercury

„Our love affair ended in tears but a deep bond grew out of it, and that's something nobody can take away from us. It's unreachable“

—  Freddie Mercury

On his relationship with Mary Austin, as quoted in "Rock On Freddie" (1985).
Kontekst: Our love affair ended in tears but a deep bond grew out of it, and that's something nobody can take away from us. It's unreachable … All my lovers ask me why they can't replace her, but it's simply impossible.
I don't feel jealous of her lovers because. of course, she has a life to lead, and so do I. Basically, I try to make sure she's happy with whoever she's with and she tries to do the same for me.
We look after each other and that's a wonderful form of love. I might have all the problems in the world, but I have Mary and that gets me through.

„Gay as a daffodil.“

—  Freddie Mercury

On himself, as quoted in Interview by Julie Webb for New Musical Express (12 March 1974) http://www.queenarchives.com/index.php?title=Freddie_Mercury_-_03-12-1974_-_NME; he is often reported to have said "I'm as gay as a daffodil, my dear!" but it does not appear in that form in the article.

„Show must go on!“

—  Freddie Mercury

From song The Show Must Go On.

Despite the fact that Freddie Mercury is dying, Brian May acknowledges Freddie’s bravery and perseverance, as he is continuing to produce music despite his illness. Mercury recorded this song the year prior to his death. He was barely walking, but continued to show dedication to his music.

„Jimi Hendrix is very important. He's my idol.“

—  Freddie Mercury

As quoted in "Queen's Freddie Mercury Shopping For An Image In London" by Scott Cohen in Circus Magazine (April 1975) http://www.queenarchives.com/index.php?title=Freddie_Mercury_-_04-XX-1975_-_Circus_Magazine.
Kontekst: Jimi Hendrix is very important. He's my idol. He sort of epitomizes, from his presentation on stage, the whole works of a rock star. There's no way you can compare him. You either have the magic or you don't. There's no way you can work up to it. There's nobody who can take his place.

„I like people to go away from a Queen show feeling fully entertained, having had a good time.“

—  Freddie Mercury

"The Man Who Would Be Queen" in Melody Maker (2 May 1981).
Kontekst: I like people to go away from a Queen show feeling fully entertained, having had a good time. I think Queen songs are pure escapism, like going to see a good film - after that, they can go away and say that was great, and go back to their problems. I don't want to change the world with our music. There are no hidden messages in our songs, except for some of Brian's.

„Liza, in terms of sheer talent, just oozes with it.“

—  Freddie Mercury

As quoted in "Queen's Freddie Mercury Shopping For An Image In London" by Scott Cohen in Circus Magazine (April 1975).
Kontekst: Liza, in terms of sheer talent, just oozes with it. She has sheer energy and stamina, which she gets across the stage, and the way she delivers herself to the public is a good influence. There is a lot to learn from her

„We’re confident people will take to us, because although the camp image has already been established by people like Bowie and Bolan we are taking it to another level.“

—  Freddie Mercury

On Queen, in "Standing Up For Queen" (28 July 1973) http://www.queenarchives.com/index.php?title=Group_-_07-28-1973_-_Melody_Maker.
Kontekst: We’re confident people will take to us, because although the camp image has already been established by people like Bowie and Bolan we are taking it to another level. The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic. Glamour is part of us and we want to be dandy. We want to shock and be outrageous instantly.

„We’re gonna stay together until we die, I’m sure of it.“

—  Freddie Mercury

Kontekst: You know something? There's been a lot of rumors lately about a certain band called Queen. The rumors are that... The rumors are that we're gonna split up. What do you think? [audience replies "No!"] [Pointing to his posterior] They're talking from here! [audience replies "Yes"! ] My apologies, but I say what I want. You know what I mean? So forget those rumors. We’re gonna stay together until we die, I’m sure of it. I keep — I must tell you — I keep wanting to leave, but they won’t let me. Also, I suppose we’re not... We're not bad for four aging queens, are we? Really, what do you think?

"Queen: Live at Wembley" (1986), shortly before performing "Who Wants To Live Forever." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GNJ1SQpxFI

„I'm possessed by love — but isn't everybody?“

—  Freddie Mercury

As quoted in "I am the Champion" by Nick Ferrari in The Sun (19 July 1985) http://www.queenarchives.com/index.php?title=Freddie_Mercury_-_07-19-1985_-_The_Sun.
Kontekst: I'm possessed by love — but isn't everybody? Most of my songs are love ballads and things to do with sadness and torture and pain.
In terms of love, you're not in control and I hate that feeling. I seem to write a lot of sad songs because I'm a very tragic person. But there's always an element of humour at the end.

Citát „Modern paintings are like women, you'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them. “

„I hate pockets in trousers … By the way, I do not wear a hose. My hose is my own. No coke bottle, nothing stuffed down there.“

—  Freddie Mercury

As quoted in NME (2 November 1974) http://www.queenarchives.com/index.php?title=Freddie_Mercury_-_11-02-1974_-_NME.
