Here's a website with some quotes of his:

http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Stadium/5025/Quotes.html

My other favorites are "Fuck today, it's tomorrow." and "Rod Stewart, Elton John and I were going to form a band called Hair, Nose & Teeth after the three of us. But it hasn't happened because none of us can agree on the order of the words."


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

My personal favorite is, "I hate pockets in trousers. By the way, I do not wear a hose. My hose is my own. No coke bottle, nothing stuffed down there." (1974)

"You're the last person I'm talking to, so you'll probably get the best interview, darling.
I don't want to change the world.
For me, happiness is the most important thing and if I'm happy then it shows in my work. In the end, all the mistakes and all the excuses are down to me. I like to feel that I'm just being my honest self and as far as I'm concerned I just want to pack in as much of life and fun, having a good time as much as I can within in the years I have. Well there you are, you have it on tape. Use it. Well that's then nearest I've come to a lot of passion in terms of interviews. How much more have you got? Come on, I'm getting bored."

"Roger and I go poncing and ultrablagging just about everywhere and lately we've been termed a couple of queens."
"Roger, the drummer, and Brian, the bass guitarist, used to be in a band called 'Smile' with another friend of mine who was a singer, and I used to be in another band, and John (bassist, John Deacon) used to be in another band. We were getting our various University degrees together and were in these semi-pro bands. We got to know each other through these bands and exchanged our musical ideas and felt that if we could sort of sit down and work together it would come together -- it would, y'know, blend. So after 'Smile' broke up, Brian and Roger approached me, our ideas came together, and we thought we should take the plunge. So it was basically Brian, Roger and myself who formed Queen and we then got John afterwards.
About the pictures for the "SHA" sleeve: "God, the agony we went through to have the pictures taken, dear. Can you imagine trying to convince the others to cover themselves in Vaseline and then have a hose of water turned on them ?"
"We'd had a hectic day at 'Top Of The Pops' and our promotion man Eric Hall invited us out for a meal. Unfortunately the others in the band couldn't come as they had to go back to the studio. Anyway, I had rather a lot to drink and I seem to remember at some point in the evening that someone removed my shoes and socks and hung them on a lampshade. Then I said something along the lines of 'well, if you're going to take everything off I shall remove my trousers...' "
"For God's sake, if I want to make big confessions about my sex life, would I go to The Sun, of all papers, to do it? There's no fucking way I'd do that. I'm too intelligent."
"I enjoy being a bitch. I enjoy being surrounded by bitches. Boredom is the biggest disease in the world, darling. Sometimes I think there must be more to life than rushing round the world like a mad thing getting bored."
We don't believe in having any session men, we do everything ourselves, from the high falsetto to the low bassy farts ; it's all us.
"I don't like to do interviews, because if you plonk a tape-recorder in front of me, I just clam up, you know."
"The thing is, I believe in personalities, not papers. I'm not interested in us versus the NME, I'm just here talking to you. People do think that because I don't do interviews, I've got this thing about the press. And it's not true."
"When I look back on all that black varnish, chiffron, satin and that, I think, God, what was I doing?"
"I can't relax in bed all day, I think that is a waste of time. I hardly read books, I think that is a waste of time. People are gonna kill me for this!"
"Love is Russian roulette for me. No one loves the real me inside, they're all in love with my fame, my stardom...l have this hard, macho shell, which I project on stage, but there's a much softer side too, which melts like butter."
"The concept of Queen is to be regal and majestic. Glamour is a part of us, and we want to be dandy."
"I want my privacy, and I feel I've given a lot for it. It's like Greta Garbo isn't it? Virgo, same star sign."
"I've made no effort to become a guitar h

"I don't like the way my teeth protrude. I'm going to have them done, but I just haven't had the time. Apart from that - I'm perfect."
"It's not a question of money anymore. I spend money like it's nothing. You know, I could be penniless tomorrow. But I'd get back somehow."
"I'd like to be buried with all my treasures, just like the Pharaohs. If I could afford it, I'd have a pyramid built in Kensington."
"I'd like to be carried on stage by six Nubian slaves with palms and all."
"I have to go around the world living in hotels. You can have a whole shoal of people looking after you, but in the end they all go away."
"I was wearing a white scarf and holding a glass of wine when I was introduced to Prince Andrew. But I was so nervous I didnt realize that my scarf was dangling in the drink. There I was trying to be really cool and suddenly the Prince said, 'Freddie, I don't think you really want this getting wet.' He squeezed out the scarf and that broke the ice between us. I said, 'Thank goodness you've put me at ease. Now I can use the odd bit of dirty language.' He really got into the spirit of things and even had a dance. He's really quite hip in those sort of situations. I have a lot of respect for Royalty, I'm a tremendous patriot."
"The most important thing, darling, is to live a fabulous life. As long as it's fabulous, I don't care how long it is."
"I shall be Marlene. What a delicious thought!"
"I can be very soft, slushy and mushy."
On the subject of children: "I'd rather get another cat."
"I need the extra teeth!"
"I think I'm going to go mad in a few years time. I'm going to be one of those insane musicians."
"We aimed for the top slot. We were not going to be satisfied with anything less."
"Fuck them, darling, if they just don't get it."
"I love to surround myself with strange and interesting people because they make me feel more alive. Extremely straight people bore me stiff. I love freaky people around me. By nature I'm restless and highly-strung, so I wouldn't make a very good family man. Deep down inside I am a very emotional person, a person of real extremes, and often that's destructive both to myself and others."
"I didn't have to take my knickers off, dear. Nobody forced me!"
"Most of the songs I write are all love ballads and things having to do with sadness and torture and pain: at the same time it's frivolous and tongue in cheek. That's basically my whole nature, I guess."
"I am a very loving person, you know"
about Mary and him:
"Our love affair ended in tears, but a deep bond grew out of it, and that's something nobody can take away from us. It's unreachable."
"I don't give a shit what people say about me.."
"I have a nervous energy that needs to be doing something. I can't relax in bed all day and just do nothing. I think it's a waste of time."
"I'm a very hated person, but I hate the Press as well. So that goes both ways, but to me I think I've learned to live with it."
"I'm a man of extremes, you know, I sort of change from day to day like a chameleon and each day is different to me and I look forward to that. I don't want to be the same person every day."
"Ah! I'm not supposed to talk to you!"
"I just feel I'm not a very good partner for anybody and I just think that's what my love is. I think my love is dangerous, who wants their love to be safe? Can you imagine writing a song 'My Love Is Safe'? It would never sell!"
"I do deliver sex appeal. It's part of modern Rock. I sell sex appeal with my body movements on stage."
I have to win people over, otherwise it's not a successful gig. It's my job to make sure people have a good time. That's part of my duty. It's all to do with feeling in control. That song We Are T

Sorry, they asked and I thought I'd give them all the quotes I had. I've had them stored up since I did a paper and speech on Queen.

Don't worry, I did too, for no reason at all. Until my computer crashed. And I haven't had the time to recover them all. But don't tell anyone.

"I like leather. I rather fancy myself as a black panther."

"If I tried that on, people would start yawning an say, 'Oh God, there's Freddie saying he's gay because it's very trendy.'"

I'm not sure if this is totally correct but it's something like it..
They wouldn't let us into Russia. They were afraid we would corupt the youth or something.

Well, here is one from a soundcheck in 1973 Oxford I do believe..

Right after doing Bama Lama Bama Lou, Freddie says "That's like a wet fart through the bloody monitors.. "

"I'm just a musical prostitute!"

"I'm not the leader of the band, I just happen to be the lead singer"

And this one "Fuck them dear they just don't get it" Does anyone know what this quote came from? Like what interview or what he was talking about?

One of the most famous quotes that Freddie said was in a interview in the mid 1980's. The question was posed to him, What would you do if you were not a rock star? Freddie stated with a grin, "I probably would sell everything I have and become a Char Lady."

One of the saddest quotes from Freddie is "Can you imagine how terrible it is when you've got everything and you're still desperately lonely? That is awful beyond words."
