QUEEN star Brian May has made a spooky Halloween show tonight and claims Freddie Mercury’s ghost speaks to him from beyond the grave.
SPOOKY: May will unveil his short film based on ghoulish photos about death tonight [GETTY]
The flamboyant singer died 23 years ago aged 45. But guitarist Brian, 67, says he still hears his voice and he is very much part of what the group still does today.
Brian explained: “I feel him around a lot. I don’t want to be too mystical about it but he is very much a part of what we do.He always had this wicked smile on his face and he would try to puncture the argument you would try to make.”
Brian will unveil a scary short film he’s made for TV tonight called One Night In Hell.It’s based on ghoulish photos about death and hell which date back as far as 1859.
Brian is a big collector of them. But asked if he believed in heaven and hell, he’d only say: “I think everyone has a vision of what they’re like.”
Meanwhile, Brian and Roger Taylor, 65, have brought Freddie back to life for new album Queen Forever, which is out next month. It contains three unreleased tracks including a rare duet between Freddie and the late Michael Jackson called There Must Be More To Life Than This.
Brian said: “It is a haunting record. I did think we had exhausted the supply of material but I guess there is always something to be found.”
One Night In Hell, tonight, Sky Arts and Sky 3D, 7.40pm.
