The British band Queen, famous for hits like “Bohemian rhapsody”, “Somebody to love” and “We are the champions”, managed to stay in time not only by revolutionizing music, but also by the charm and carefreeness of Freddie Mercury, who was the protagonist of the most extravagant and surprising parties of the group, carried out after the concerts.
This tradition later passed to Mercury’s birthday parties, of which the celebration of his 39th birthday stands out, the event best known for having a black and white theme, and numerous guests.
The truth is that only in certain celebrations were cameras of the press allowed to enter. For this reason, it is usual to find myths and legends about the vocalist’s nights of debauchery and madness.
What is the most controversial party of the band Queen?
On the occasion of the release of the album “Jazz”, the band’s seventh album, on October 31, 1978, Queen organized a party at the Fairmont Hotel in the city of New Orleans.
In the particular celebration of Halloween, rock stars, movie stars, journalists and friends paraded. “We had kind of a special connection to New Orleans and a lot of our friends came…of all genders!” said Brian May, a member of the group.
What eccentricities did the famous New Orleans party have?
Beyond having the participation of a city band, the party was full of excesses that managed to stay in the memory of the members of Queen. “It was a very, very over the top party,” May noted.
The “event” had all kinds of eccentric characters, lots of alcohol and cocaine, and people with dwarfism serving cold cuts on their bodies. “On top of that they had all kinds of sausages, chopped liver and things like that. You couldn’t see it. Thus, when people approached to take the meat, the man moved, “said the musician.
What was the most popular of that night?
Beyond the naked waiters who offered oysters and caviar, strippers, magicians, and snake charmers, the most ‘requested’ of the night was the oral sex service in the bathrooms.
According to Freddie Mercury, this service was in keeping with the fact that Queen was the biggest band in the world. “Do most hotels offer room service to guests? Ok, tonight Fairmont is offering you lip service,” he stressed.
How do you know this data?
In fact, only the guests of those nights could tell what they experienced. However, there are some photographs of these iconic celebrations.
In addition, some of the details of the parties were revealed in “Queen: the parties”, segment published on the same YouTube channel as the band.
What is the new Queen song with Freddie Mercury?
“Face It Alone”, a song recorded in 1989, during The Miracle album sessions, was recently released.
“It’s wonderful, a real discovery, a very passionate piece,” said Roger Taylor, a member of the band.
It should be noted that the song, one of the six unreleased songs that the band has prepared for the next reissue of “The Miracle”, was made when Mercury was suffering from the consequences of AIDS, hence its deep meaning.
