It was 27 years ago that Freddie passed away. Now he’s been remembered through Bohemian Rhapsody, an official Queen biopic backed by Brian May and Roger Taylor. But had he still be alive, what would Freddie have made of the movie? Speaking with Classic Rock, May was asked if he thinks the late singer would have approved of the film.

May 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.”

May also revealed why Freddie could not have been a movie star.

The 71-year-old legend said: “No. He didn’t have the patience.”

“He was offered a residency in the West End at one point, and he said: ‘Yeah, I’ll do it. How many shows a week?’ They said: ‘Eight.’ And he said: ‘I’ll do a couple.’ He didn’t like repeating stuff.”

He added: “Patience was not one of Freddie’s virtues.

“I think he would have found it difficult turning up every day on the set. I don’t think that would have lasted long [laughs].”
