In the book co-written by David Minns there's such a fact. In 1976 Freddie told David that one song on 'ADATR' album was written for him. But Minns didn't specify, which song particularly it had been. Some sources claim it's 'You Take My Breath Away', other say it's 'Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy'. Any proof facts?

To be clear it was indeed David "Dyllis"Minns  where Freddie wrote GOFLB for.

Freddie's lovers:

- Mary Austin 1970-1976 (Bohemian Rhapsody; living with Mary, Coming in terms of desire for men, sleeping with men and leaving Mary)
- Eric "Sophie"Hall 1974 (Killer Queen)
- David "Dyllis"Minns 1975-1978 (Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy)
- Joe Fanelli  1978-1979
- Vince the Barman
- Thor "BB" Arnold 1980 (Body Language?)
- Bill Reid 1982 (Body Language?)
- Barbara Valentin 1983-1985 (It's a Hard Life)
- Winnie Kirchberger 1983-1985 (Man on the Prowl???)
- Jim Hutton 1985-1991 (Days of our Lives)

and of course his One night stands: Tony Bastin, Pablo etc.

Nice of Roger to write a song about Freddie's gay lover.
