not good as it could have been, 22 Sep 2012
Is a good reading, but...From this book I have learnt more about Freddie's sexual partners than his own creative world. Not much is said about the sessions in studio, how "the miracle" was done, how "innuendo" went, nothing about MOTHER LOVE, that he sang after a strong dose of vodka and interrupted: "Guys i'm too tired, we'll see us later". That was the last song he ever sang. This is what a fan like me wants to know: how he worked, how he created, how he was the musician and singer he was, how the albums were done. Very few is said instead on how the band created on studio. And somewhere it seems to osessively force the gay matter in Freddie's life. Making of this a clue point of the entire book. But Freddie, as Brian recently said, wasn't only this, wasn't even only gay: "I know that all through his life Fred didn't think that whether he was gay or not was important. He loved music, he love his work, and he didn't want anything to get in the way. Anyone who portrays Fred as purely a gay story is missing a lot of the point." I completely share what Brian Said.
