Here's a quick OCR and Google translation of that Dutch interview:
Recently Netherlands eerisvereerd again with a two-day visit of the world band Queen. The previous
visit was not even a year ago and the statement seems justified that the band
led by Freddie Mercury made entirely in our cozy swamp delta in the ne. Last
year you could get another chapter Ciriiii-Queen of the vicissitudes of the
four reading, recorded from the beautiful mouth of Fred. Therefore it seemed to
me this time nice am the other major driver in eheel a hat word to Paten,
guitarist wish me dihah> passed it, ran it any wonder ivan the part of Fred,
which does not seem to understand why I do not had chosen for him. That
characterizes at least the real wheel. May was prepared immediately tu speak to
me and was very soon .. •, that he is still a simple, modest, friendly and
above tall boy remained. This balance was made between the two concerts.
Q: You are quite often lately, h2? "
A: Yes, the second kcer within one year. We feel that Europe the last two
years has become very important to us. There are so many records worldwide and
we have so many fans that we really should be, I think It's always very nice to
play in Europe. Many people think that we are here for years at the top, but that is not so. The album A Night At The Opera hceft time it sold well, but it might as well be a fluke. The Races A Day by Ar and News
of the World have our toilet positic tremendous popular sup-dig reinforced, not
only in Europe mau (especially in America where we najatir a tour uitertit guceetivolle gedatin Itebben. The situatle is
at the moment so, that News of the World by far the best selling album. Even in
France, where in the past we have little to fry arrived, has that record quite sold during
this tour hehhe we first France in the tour schedule with them. There We are all four very happy, because it is
more central bevcstiging that our music on the right track. Many more people
believe in us today. "
Q: Hei took a long time for you a solid foot in the door got in America.
A: "Yes, it's been a slow development. It is simply very difficult to truly there among the established
names to penetrate. There are many groups in America while we still ko-men from
It takes a lot of time and effort to do the entire American audience, and as you will understand we have our commitments elsewhere. Our final breakthrough is closely related to the fact that the single "We Are
77te Cltampions with on the other hand, We Will Rock You, two A-sides is a big
hit and was thereby News of the World was running great. But I must tell it to,
that Europe is in fact the area is difficult to conquer. This is sometimes
underestimated, I think. "
Q: Domestically, things get a little less, I'm told.
A: "That's right. In England it is still A! ORDER At Opera our rhe hest-selling album. WC wool have many fans, but the last eighteen years much has happened in the field of music in England and that has surely worked as a barrier for many groups. Of course it is jam-mer, but I do not worry about it. It'll be back. I hope. "
Q: And what about all those rumors about the breakup of Queen?
A: "All nonsense and nonsense. The English press was busy again. Look, like hundreds of other
groups we have such bad experiences with the English press, that we no more
interviews with them. And because she wanted to write about us, but they think
everything is so negative and preferably also possible. There is simply no
truth at all. You should never believe what you read in the English music
Q: Are there might be plans in the solo band?
A: "Not really .. We all four hebbeb sometimes the idea of being a solo album would like to
make, but first we have the z6 pressure, there is no time for one-way, and
second, the musical situation within the group 16, we all four have a full
ownership. Everyone writes his own songs, submits it to the others and then
choose whether applicable things .... MTzItten for a ifigf! SISPeremOftli gene.
Of course we all four songs, which so far always been rejected by four of us,
but that can up-tion instead of a solo album maybe in the future following a
best-album Queen appear. "
Q: Why you never write songs together?
A: "We simply have our way of working. Each takes his share, but it is true that every song
by all groups is _gearrangeerd so it will: as a Queen song recognizable. We
each have very different ideas about music, you should know and it's rarely
happened that we really have written a song together-am. Songs like "Stone
Cold Crazy Liar, and come the closest to. I myself do not consider it possible
that in future we will still be writing together. "
Q: But the individual contributions have far-caused a large variation in music.
A: "Yes, that's true and I think that's very good. For example, I never could write songs sank
von Roger DLE. variation by which we are a grimt% language audience. No
disadvantage IR structure. eng corpse people have certain pre-approved numbers
or regret it, but yes, you can not please everyone, "
Q: Maybe if you would compose together.
A: "Maybe, but it could also be that nobody likes us more. As we do now we are very satisfied."
Q: Do you sometimes. the early days of Queen?
A: 'Certainly. The first few years we've been through so much. We were already busy with a number
of songs, and we were able to make the first album. Those disturbances, the
songs and so although we t'oen not as good as it could play and studio
technique also was not at such a high level, it is a spon-neous representation
of x% ate when in us alive. And then came the second album and I'm really proud of. We have limited agents can
extract so much that for me a milestone in my career has become. Queen II is my main Queen album and it is also the only home that I sometimes turn. It is a very emotional and I would record him best sometimes ppnielyv.f Lom, vill gri
Q: My hebje blessing.
A: "Well, of course there are plenty of reasons not to do it. . However, last year the song Keep Yourself Allve in a new version included one, which was intended as a single for the U.S. market, but since We Are The Champions went so well, we only board up the miss. Maybe we will take the picture off or sometimes we put it on an album. It's become a very good performance 'and it has strengthened me in my mind that the production of' first album is actually not very well. "
Q: Do not you think you from Sheer Heart Attack konsessies have done great favor to the general public?
A: Thhhh .... No, not really. Veór Sheer / Kart Attack in fact we had no audience, and when we Killer
Queen Sheer! Kart Attack have received considerable response, we started
writing for this audience. We've never got-you-targeting the general public and
I do not think we'll mersjele-music. Our audience is just really big, and it is
soon associated mud kommendes I think that iilot sr konsessilot liebben done.
Look, MI Queen II pete again we could loose some album coming up, so &
Sheer Art Attack was a new step in our development. We do not know in advance
that that record would be a success? Because it was the case, we decided from
that moment for our audience to write and that is our particular appreciated.
We still do what we want, not what the public wants. "
Q: But I heard recently that Freddie was quite taken by the rule-the disco craze.
A: "Is that so? I do not know. He likes the Bee Gees pretty good, I think, but I think it is also
called ear-dig: Maybe we also do a disco number, you never know. But if that
happens, we do it because we enjoy it and not because it is popular at the
moment happened. "
Q: This is clearly working hard to designate.
A: "Yes, you'll have me believe."
