TheCro asked me this, and I love it....
GREG, READ THIS: (i did read it) STOP TEASING PEOPLE WITH STUFF LIKE "OH I FOUND SOMETHING I CAN'T TALK ABOUT
" and stuff like that. stop provoking
, be a normal human being
and SHUT UP
if you can't talk about it.
and don't take this as offense.
i'm just saying how things are..
and one question for you (FOR INSTANCE, YOU COULD ANSWER THIS QUESTION...):
Will there be released any Freddie Mercury tracks [not Queen tracks] after the Boxset?
GB: I can't answer this, silly boy, you know I can't. But I can tell you that last night me and Pete fuzzy-top Malanstuff ( the bloke at the studio who looks after guitars) were in the studio listening to two cassettes we found recently, and one contained some fabulous stuff from the Bad Guy sessions that blew our fucking brains out of the room.
I don't usually say Fucking, but Holly uses it all the time, and yesterday Thistleboy, here, called me a useless *unt... so I think I can get away with a Fuck here and there.
Pete's reaction was, "Jesus Mary and Joseph, Fingers.... this is just super and rather enjoyable. This is extraordinary unless I am very much mistaken, you archivist with a sexy glint in your eye type chap."
He was NOT mistaken at all. I do have a glint in my sexy eye.
"Oooh, you mustn't say that" was my reply.
Then another track came on, an early demo of a song Freddie later recorded with a two brothers who shall have to remain secret and un-named and a nony mouse, a wonderful cover version, and Pete and I were just breathtakenly moved to tears. In fact, Pete urinated into his father's trousers - that he just happened to be wearing at the time!!!! It was THAT good.
Pete said that the tape had to remain secret and I couldnt talk about it. He said I could dangle a carrot or two, so I probably will do that. But under no circumstances can I talk about it. Nor about the Barcelona unused track we found, in which Freddie plays trumpet, Mike Moran the bagpipes and that Straker chap juggles bags of cement in the background, until he drops one on Feebie's foot and we suddenly here, "That was my fucking foot you silly man!" and the session ends.
It's amazing and wonderous and one day YOU might here it. But you probably WON'T. But I did. So did Pete. So stick that in your pipe and be resentful about it you git.
