When Freddie lived in New York City there was an episode where he went out to the gay clubs with his NYC friends. Earlier that day Peter Freestone had done his "shopping" for that night's outing. Freddie had taken so many drugs that he climbed into a trash can and kept screaming "I'm trash. I'm trash."

It wasn't the first time that Freddie found himself in a dumpster.

If your friend doesn't already see our Fred was far from boring, she's probably never going to get it no matter what you say....

There's also that time he smashed a mirror over his assistant's head, and told him to clean it up.  Or throwing the rock through John Reid's window.

He toured the world for 12 years and worked with some of the best musicians of his generation.  Anyone who finds him "boring" perhaps needs to reassess what their idea of boring is.  But ... I'm guessing you're just teenagers, so ... have fun.

Actually, your friend is right.  Freddie was a snoozefest.

They were so dull that they had to hire midgets with cocaine.

There's the cornflakes story. The funny brownies incident. The fake boobs fiasco. The one about Freddie telling stories and being so charming that his co-workers did all his heavy lifting for him. The one with the mirrors in Kensington market.

If anyone doesn't know some of these stories I'd be happy to tell them :)

According to David Quantick from the NME, at a dinner one night, Freddie asked Roger's date 'And how big is your c..t, dear?' and 'Can you get it over your head, dear?'.

Freddie apparently disliked this woman, however she ended up defusing the tense situation by flicking her thumbnail against her teeth.

Freddie Vs Sid Vicious is my personal favorite, though there are multiple versions of what happened.

Freddie didn't need anything like that to give him inspiration for songs. He was naturally creative.

He was an interesting character for many reasons, partially based on his formative years, his natural shyness but amazing frontman persona. His arrogance to the press but down to earth nature with people he trusted...etc.

Actually the more I think about it it is difficult to imagine a more interesting person. I think your friend is on a wind up.

Correct.  All that blow was purely recreational.

I recommend reading Peter Hince´s "Queen Unseen"; many fun stories in there ! I really enjoyed it.

My personal favourite is a very common one,  anything spectacular or flamboyant, but I found it very funny. Can´t remember exactly but it goes something like this: 

the car accident Peter and Freddie had while driving back to London in the middle of the night; Queen were recording at ...well can´t remember the name of that Studio now  ...maybe Rockfield? Freddie learnt that Mary was sick in London and he felt the urge to go back to the city with her.

The road was frozen, the brakes failed and they crashed in the middle of nowhere. Some gypsies
camped in there knocked the car window telling Peter and Freddie to run away before the police came in case they were drunk !!

Peter stayed in the car and Freddie went walking to a near village in search of a phone to make a call for assistance.

Knocked the door of the first house he found and the family in there were shocked to see Freddie Mercury at their door (he was already recognizible then!), telling him to come in and have some tea or something  with them. More neighbours were alerted and a lot of people came to join the tea party with Freddie;  Peter stayed freezing his ass for more than an hour or so in the car while Freddie was having such a great time with his new country friends !!!
