Brian continued: “But [Freddie] said, ‘It’s beautiful, it’s great, it’s very complete in its own way, you should do it.’ And he said something very profound at the time.”
The Queen singer, who had been battling AIDS, knew his days could be numbered so encouraged his dear friend and bandmate to work hard at his solo music.
Freddie told Brian: “You know we’re all thinking and wondering what’s going to happen to me, and you don’t have to feel embarrassed about it.
“You know you should be thinking about your solo career at this time and if this is the beginning of your solo career then it’s a very worthy beginning.”
