Roger I think... Didn't Jim Hutton say that when he visited them for the first time in the studio, Roger and Freddie were like soulmates...?

I've heard from interviews and articles that Roger would party with Freddie at times (in the 70s and 80s), and Roger would visit Freddie at his house as well, and didn't Freddie stay at Roger's house in some foreign country sometimes?

Hmmmm...and I read he had a special bond with John (I think it was Peter Freestone interview)...I can totally see that too...

I think he was close to all of them in different ways...Roger because they both liked to have a wild good time and John because Freddie did have a quiet and shy side too...

I still think John myself though...

Since John wasn't a singer in the band, Freddie gave John's songs a "voice" so to speak so I'm sure they worked closely together in that respect. But Roger and Freddie seemed to be friendlier in social settings. After all, they had the stall together in the early days and probably bonded during those lean times. Freddie and Brian? Nah... they were bandmates and I think it didn't go too much further than that.

No way.
These 2 didn't hang out exclusively because there was two completely different lives being lived here.

But rest assure, they loved each as close as any 2 brothers ever could... they toured and conquered the freakin world together... were the chief songwriters of how many Gold/Platinum albums??

They were more than "just band mates".

That goes for all 4 of them.

Aw, this thread is making me kinda sad... :( I think Freddie was close to all of them, but probably a little jealous of John cause he had the big happy family thing and all.

John business wise. Both of them said they wouldn't think of 'hanging out' together.

Roger. I think Freddie thought"John is Jr. brother."

I think Roger was the closest to all three of them. According to Fred's driver, Rog was the only one who went to dinner with Fred, or to the parties, plus Freddie was Roger's best-man. Rog was sort of close to Brian as well, and he went skiing with John. So there you go.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
