I was thinking today it the bus going to work, the possibility of Freddie being neurotic. Neurosis of course is a term that sums up a huge variety of behaviour patterns, ways of reaction, and distress. And since life is not a MAN MADE PARADISE, most of us develop a small or bigger amount of neurosis during life.
But Freddie himself had a more obvious way to express it. I remember him in an interview saying " I cant sit in home lay in bed all day and do nothing. I have this neurotic energy, that makes me wanna do something". And all of us remember his body language in a vast of interviews. He appeared highly stimulated. Of course that doesn’t prove anything, cause he just hated interviews, but i think it is more than that. In terms of art, i would say that there is always this odd song by Mercury, witch except of a genuine piece of art , is the dark product of a neurotic mind. Take Fairy Feller's Master Stroke, for instance. From the agony harpsichord in the beginning till the variety of hysterical (joking) moods in the melody, it appears to me like the man had a genius way to make the distress he was in, superb music.
To sum up Freddie being neurotic is not offensive to him at all. The way he dealt with his neurosis, if he had it at all, makes him even bigger to my eyes.

Any artist is a bit maladjusted, otherwise they wouldn't be artists. They'd have nothing worth expressing, and wouldn't get very far.

That doesn't stop a lot of people from pretending to be artists or musicians or whatever you want to call them. They make a shitload of money from idiot teenagers, but make very little impact on the collective consciousness of thinking individuals.
(I'm staring at Justin Timberlake when I say this).
