Modern paintings are like women, you'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them.
I'm just a musical prostitute, my dear.
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies, Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die, I can fly, my friends...
I won't be a rock star. I will be a legend.
Oh, I was not made for heaven. No, I don't want to go to heaven. Hell is much better. Think of all the interesting people you're going to meet down there!
I always knew I was a star, and now the rest of the world seems to agree with me.
Money may not buy happiness, but it can damn well give it!
When the whole point of Queen was to be original.
What will I be doing in twenty years' time? I'll be dead, darling! Are you crazy?
I am a romantic, but I do put up a barrier around myself, so it is hard for people to get in and to know the real me
I have fun with my clothes onstage; it's not a concert you're seeing, it's a fashion show.
A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It's a theatrica! event.
I was born to love you with every single beat of my heart. I was born to take care of you every single day of my life.
I'm as gay as a daffodil, my dear!
One night Roger was in a foul mood and he threw his entire bloody drumset across the stage. The thing only just missed me - I might have been killed.
It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining, I feel good, and no one's gonna stop me now.
Back in the old days, we were often compared to Led Zeppelin. If we did something with harmony, it was the Beach Hoys. Something heavy was Led Zeppelin.
We're a bit flashy, but the music's not one big noise.
Is Billy Idol just doing a bad Elvis pout, or was he born that way?
I'm very emotional; I think I may go mad in several years' time.
When I'm dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance.
But, you know, we spent two years putting our act together.
I dress to kill, but tastefully.
Onstage, I am a devil. But I'm hardly a social reject.
It destroys the soul to hear that you're all hype, that you have no talent, and that your whole career has been contrived.
Does it mean this, does it mean that, that's all anybody wants to know. I'd say what any decent poet would say if anyone dared ask him to analyze his work: if you see it, darling, then it's there!
Who wants to live forever?
We're a very expensive group; we break a lot of rules. It's unheard of to combine opera with a rock theme, my dear .
We were disliked by the press in the early days because they couldn't put their finger on us, and that was the case with Zeppelin as well.
I'm hopeless with money; I simply spend what I've got.
The bigger the better; in everything.
If i had to do it all over again? Why not, I would do it a little bit differently.
The reason we're successful, darling? My overall charisma, of course
In the early days, we just wore black onstage. Very bold, my dear. Then we introduced white, for variety, and it simply grew and grew.
The show must go on.
Years ago, I thought up the name Queen. It's just a name. But it's regal, obviously, and -sounds splendid.
It's not a concert you are seeing, it's a fashion show.
Get on your bikes and ride!
I like to be surrounded by splendid things.
We've gone overboard on every Queen album. But that's Queen.
The lavish presentation appeals to me, and I've got to convince the others.
Interview? Oh don't be ridiculous.
I was never too keen on the British music press. They've called us a supermarket hype, and they used to suggest that we didn't write our own songs.
I want to lead the Victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.
I think my melodies are superior to my lyrics.
You're headed for disaster cos you never read the signs Too much love will kill you every time
And, we have no such thing as a budget anymore. Our manager freaks when we show him the bill. We're lavish to the bone, but all our money goes back into the product.
I got my diploma from Ealing College of Art, in graphics and illustration.
Inside my heart is breaking, My make-up may be flaking, But my smile, still, stays on!
The others don't like my interviews. And frankly, I don't care much for theirs.
You know, I designed the Queen crest. I simply combined all the creatures that represent our star signs-and I don't even believe in astrology.
If you see it there, darling, then it's there." -Freddie Mercury, when asked the meaning of his lyrics.
If you see it there, darling, then it's there.
If we're weird onstage, I don't know what you'd call the Tubes.
Born to be kings, we're the princes of the Universe!
I guess I've always lived the glamorous life of a star. It 's nothing new - I used to spend down to the last dime.
I'm not into business at all.
