Interesting reading....
The Quietus has unequivocal love for Queen, but it's an affection which
hasn't always been shared by the rock press. Just witness this spat
between the NME (The New Musical Express) and Freddie Mercury from 1977.

Best Freddie quote ever:

"I remember speaking to you three or four years ago.  So you're still working as just a writer.  Life is not treating you very well, is it?"



"The more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you." -- Dan Lampinski

Worth bearing in mind that the NME office environment at this time (c. 1976/77) was literally turned into some sort of  bunker decorated with barbed wire - I remember this from seeing a documentary about the magazine and its' writers a few years ago. Burchill and Stewart were practically ''dug-in" there writing such cynical pieces as this...

Freddie seems to be just toying with this so called journalist. Good read for sure!
