True Story: In 1983, Mercury and Michael Jackson, hot off the release of Thriller, were plotting to record an album of duets. It was a perfect idea, this potential union of Queen and the nascent King of Pop. Three tracks had already been written and demoed, but the studio sessions ultimately faltered. Why? Because Jackson brought his llama to the studio. Mercury was apparently not into it!
👑 Saturday Story for you lovely darlings 😊 Freddie was famously always very fearful of risking his life, but this story makes me laugh every time 😂
For anyone that needs translation 👇
After boarding a flight to New York from Tokyo one day, Freddie discovered the plane was a DC10, a model that had had some problems in the past. “DC death more like!" he remarked, gathered his things, and exited the plane, taking the only available seat on the next flight 14 hours later, economy, as opposed to his first class seat on the DC10.
