Freddie Mercury, you are in our hearts
Today Freddie Mercury would have turned 70 years old. Although it is difficult to imagine him old. We will not rewrite the biography of the Great Pretender, and offer to remember as it was, his sayings and what it means for some of us.
Do you want to interview me? Oh, do not do anything stupid!
I'm different. I really like that. That's what it means to be sincere. Of course, I could sit here and say what I'm a wonderful person, but I really like to belong to a plurality of different components, I can be a bastard.
I think that in the eyes of the audience, I was brought a man from the scene, very arrogant, very aggressive, surrounded by brilliance, so whenever people talk about me and see me in public, they do not doubt in my arrogance. To some extent, this is a good thing, since I do not want everyone knew about my true feelings, it's my personal life.
I have a few very close friends, they are familiar with the other part of my inner world. So, the only thing I want the newspaper never wrote things like: "Oh, he's really a wonderful man," because, like most people, my soul, like a medal has two sides: one light, the other dark.
I got a degree in graphics and illustration. In the future, they did not use, but I think it is relevant to my work on the design of album covers and other similar things such as costumes for the stage. That, perhaps, is all. Actually, I was going to be an illustrator, but I'm glad I changed my mind.
I played semi-professional groups, but in the end simply got carried away and decided this is what I want to do, because the only way to find out if you qualify for this business, because it is impossible to work in full capacity . You can not argue as follows: "I work in this business for a couple of years, and if I fail, go do something else." If you do so subconsciously think, you just will not be able to give music his whole soul, all your energy, no matter what.
I do not want to do anything else, so in order to succeed, I was ready to experience all the difficulties and hardships, which are then presented to me and destiny. No matter how long it takes to succeed, you just have to believe it, and I believed. It is necessary to have a certain proportion of selfishness, arrogance and self-confidence. In this business you can not just be a nice guy.
I am very cruel. I think, given his experience over the years in this business, you begin to understand the situation that prevailed in it. At the same time you became hardened, what I really wanted to do. But you just need to be so, otherwise you and I'm sure the same will tell other people, just be defeated. You can very easily crushed, so you need to be inaccessible from the beginning of his career. In fact, it's a bit like an attraction with cars. When you drive on a machine that you are not knocked, you have all the time to go on strike, but generally you hit the neighboring machine.
The higher you climb the ladder of success, the more you have the problem, the worse they become, and while you are surrounded by more and more clever and devious traps. But precisely therein lies your ultimate goal. I do not care whether or not you sympathize with me or not, I'm just telling you about how things really stand in this business. If someone decided to work in it, I can assure you that it is waiting for the difficult path to success.
We have tried everything to turn into a theatrical performance, because before we had Eric Clapton blues, and the people at the time just went on stage in his usual jeans, so that from our side is bright, catchy image was a response to everything that happens. The same is done and the "Sex Pistols", challenging the accepted norms of behavior. Thus, and this is a paradox, glam rock, with its colors, make-up and lots of stage effects, being a kind of retaliation aimed at all the things that happened to him, he wanted to become an accepted and recognized.
Oh, yes. In order to be remembered, it is necessary to shock society, challenge it, but do not forget about the music. Although I believe that now is to concentrate on only one music enough. You may say that talent will manifest itself, but talent today - it is something more than just the ability to write a good song. You need to be able to present it to the public and ensure its success. In addition, it must meet the modern requirements of show business. I think that to win you have to use all the elements of his talent.
I do not want to change the world, the main thing for me - happiness. If I'm happy, this is reflected in my work. No regrets will not help ... then. I have a feeling that I was myself, and this is important - to have a life of happiness and joy. Everyone should strive to do as much as possible, as much as possible. But, of course, who both work ...
Risk is present in all that we do, from the time of the work on Bohemian Rhapsody. That's why we are not going to change anything, and it seems to me that some of our most loyal fans know it. In our work we use a lot of variety, even absurd ideas. Some of them fail, others are not. In fact, we do not give it such a big importance. We do what we want to do, whether it is pleasant to someone or not.
I think the best way to work with other people - it's when you're totally immersed in it and just do your thing. Provided that it ignites you, then everything turned out - otherwise, discard it!
I think, speaking to the audience, we must do whatever we want. I think this is the best way to implement his plan. I hate to adapt and even to indulge the taste of the public as it is done by the record company.
We will always oppose the routine and never be run on public consumption, if she likes, and the people themselves will make their choice. We were never afraid of what does and does not flirted with fashion, we have our own brand - Queen brand.
We are not fools, so never restrict a new scroll of old things written by us five or six years ago. We feel very finely and accurately react to what happens. I remember when we recorded the album Hot Space, which has completely failed in America, and everyone said, "Oh, Queen, they are very risky, but now they know that this should not be doing more." I replied: "If I want to do it again, I'll do."
Of course, every artist hopes that his work adequately appreciate. I wanted to get the maximum recognition from the audience, but I do not fear that my album will not be successful, then I'll just take and take another.
What is your favorite song? Actually, I like all of them. But when I finished working on the album and listened to all the records, I realized that one of my favorite songs - a Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow.
The thing is, she was born. Moreover, it is very personal. I wrote it in just five minutes, and there everything was perfect. Words fell on the music thing turned out very emotional and very strong ... I love this song!
We have not allowed into Russia. They think that we debauchery their youth.
In fact, my kind of loneliness to survive the hardest. Loneliness does not mean that you are locked up alone in his room. You can be in a crowded place and feel is still the most lonely person because no one really do not belong.
You're only as good as you have the strength to stay afloat.
Oh, we hate each other! But we do! No, we're fighting like ... like cats and dogs, but we've always done. I'm not saying that we are absolutely hate each other, you know, there are fights, and we are not going to fall apart! We're still here.
Happiness can not be bought. But money can help him find!
I do not believe in astrology. I believe in my charisma!
I have no desire to live up to 70 years: this is probably very boring.
What will I do after 20 years? I'll be dead! Doubt? And some readers opinions about Freddie:
