It is with much emotion and enthusiasm that David Richard’s children Wendy and Christopher and the Montreux Celebration team, announce their intention to have a bronze figure of David Richards made in his memory. Producer and engineer in charge of Mountain Studios, David Richards quickly became a loyal friend to Queen and associate producer.

If sufficient funds are raised before March 31, the bronze figure in tribute to David will be presented to the public and the press on Friday, September 4th during the Freddie Celebration Days 2020 under the Montreux Market Hall on Lake Geneva. It will then be permanently placed in the ’Queen, The Studio Experience’ museum thanks to the support of the Mercury Phoenix Trust. The choice of this location is not insignificant as it was the former premises of Mountain Studios where David Richards worked and recorded famous artists, forever leaving his mark on the world of music.

Queen – A Kind of Magic
