To Queen fans, in order to improve a Wikipedia artcicle about Freddie Merucry, I wondered if anyone knew the sources of the following quotes:

1)"ll my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary, but it's simply impossible. The only friend I've got is Mary, and I don't want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that's enough for me. I couldn't fall in love with a man the same way as I have with Mary."

2) "'ll always walk around like a Persian popinjay and no one's going to stop me."

3) "I'm not just going to be a star, I'm going to be a legend!"

I believe the second one is from a 1974 interview with somebody, not sure though...

Well, I checked the 1974 NME interview, and I could not find any of these quotes. I wonder if they are real. I do remember hearing about the "I'm going to be a legend" quote from some source though. I don't remember the other two. Maybe they are not even real.

I read that freddie qouted them, I am not going to be a star my dear I am going to be a ledgend. in the 1974 range where before they were famous,
it was in a book queen the early years, which follows each member from early on. It's a ptetty informitive book, written by mark hodgiskin.
