Understandably, Freddie was in quite a frenzy after coming off stage and was going way over the top with people he never met before i.e. to Bono where he said something like

"We've been thinking about it and we've decided we like you"

The way he said "we" is quite funny I think and I'm sure he used that word a lot that day to have his way with people!

So to answer your question, Freddie approached Bono backstage but was way too immature and young in the business to handle Freddie!

Actually, Freddie tried to be friendly, wanted to shake his hand and mistook his name

"Mr. Awfull, isn't it?", or something.

After that, it didn't go too swell...

I think he called him 'Mr Ferocious'

Peter Freestone said that FM hated pop stars like Bono, who used their fame to get political.

There's a U2 book where I remember reading that Brian came up to Bono after the Live Aid gig and told him:

- That guitar player of yours The Hedge, is really damn good.

Did freddie also get it wrong or something when saying "you're the fellow from the boomtown rats, aren't you?"
and the reply was "Er...no, i'm the fellow from ultravox!"

No, Mr Ferocious was Sid Vicious the murderer

But did Freddie pin Bono against the wall?

Freddie didn't put Bono up against the wall, he just blocked him in a corner from getting away from him! There is an old interview out there somewhere on the net where Rotten disses Freddie, mocking his 'Nijinsky' outfits and his interests in Ballet. Recorded around 1978 I think. Freddie did call Rotten "Mr Awful" as well when they met.

Here's another post you may find interesting:

He was just very very excited after coming off stage and who can blame him? He was going around snogging and hugging everyone and having a laugh. He put Rick Parfitt from Status Quo into a head lock as well that day haha.

Look at the Live Aid footage and you will see Freddie touching Bono's elbow which is sexual body language. So the answer is yes, Freddie is sexually attracted to Bono.

Yes, they had sex and as dedication U2 wrote It's A Beautiful Day. Bono stole the title of Freddie, but since they had sex, Freddie agreed.
