freddie always had his habits on stage which are regularly availible to watch through the many clips of queen out there... (ty youtube.)

so here are a few i've noticed

fredddie's frequent use of the word 'shooter' or 'shoot out', even in other songs besides another one bites the dust

generally, before playing the first song where piano is required in a concert, he will warm up and play these beautiful balads, although i've seen more warm ups for bo rhap than any other song

freddie's frequent use of a towel slung over his shoulder during 'love of my life'

any others?

Well, in his later years he uses the term "F*ck off" quite often...

Due to his personal religious convictions - he never wore any.

snigger!

I love the way he did that little 'run' onstage. Kind of kicking his legs back really high. See:start of Live Aid, a lot of Wembley,randomly in the middle of WWTLF in Budapest.

In Peter Freestone's book I believe he said Freddie knew the value of a tantrum.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
