Brian was delighted that Matt Lucas sang Good Old Fashioned Loverboy in tribute to Freddie last night. When asked about it, Brian said;
"I'm so pleased - Matt Lucas one one of Freddie's absolute favourite artists of all time, and if Fred were here to see this I know he would be absolutely thrilled by it".
When asked why Paul Rodgers (it was previously believed that Rogers was an influence of Freddie) was not present at a gig which was specifically in honour of Freddie, Brian added " Freddie never liked Paul Rodgers, ever - FACT. I don't know where you get these stories".
Because the gig was running late due to all meat having to be removed from the menu at the last minute at Brian's request, the much anticipated acapella duet between Brian and a badger also unfortunately had to be pulled.
