“I’d want to be in bed with Freddie. I think that would be appropriate at this point! I don’t usually say things on the record, but that’s the part I want. I want to be one of his lovers.”
“I’ve had little conversations with [Brian May] about it. I asked about how times have changed as far as being open about somebody’s private life. And I asked them, ‘How are you going to approach that with the story of Freddie?’ Back in the ’70s and the ’80s, it was something you just didn’t really talk about. Obviously we’re in a much different time now, and it’s very topical so it’ll be really interesting to see how they’ll approach that part of his life. They haven’t quite figured it out yet as the movie is still in development.”
After his solo dates, Adam will return to fronting Queen in Europe, from 20 May Rock In Rio Lisbon, Portugal – tickets. The tour touches down in the UK for the Isle Of Wight Festival 12 June. [See top of page for date and ticket links].
