It was with Freddie talking and he mentioned having Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious to sing on a song of his, and he'll do the same for them, but they said their fans wouldn't understand it and it'd be rediculous, and so he started insulting them and they were shocked of things he said, etc. Anyone remember it? It was on youtube a while back.

All I know about this is about that time when Freddie called Sid Vicious Mr. Ferocious, when he asked him if he was still trying to bring ballet to the masses... or something.  I think it was Roger who related the incident.  I don't know of any interview in which Freddie says anything about the Sex Pistols...

The main story about the two bands that I remember would be the incident where Queen was recording a song for NOTW, and Sid Vicious snuck into the studio, crawled along the floor unnoticed, then climbed up Freddie's piano and said, "Hello, Freddie!", then went right back out the door. Shortly thereafter, Queen's producer knocked on the door of the studio the Sex Pistols were recording in, and mentioned that the band would greatly appreciate if Sid never did that again.

On youtube a few months back, there was a video and Freddie was talking about a different occasion or something. Not the one about the 'Ballet To The Masses' one. It wasn't an audio video either, and I think it was from 1984 and it was in good quality I think

Not that one either.

Freddie told John or Sid, or both of them, that if they let him sing on one of their tracks, he'll let them sing on one of Queen's. They said they can't do that because people will think shit about them, due to them claiming to be the 'end of rock and roll'.

This was a nice interview Freddie gave, and I think it was the one where he was in a brown sweater, OR, one where he's talking to that guy from Countdown. But it doesn't show the full videos on youtube.
