Could Freddy Mercury Have Created The Song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Today?

November 9, 2018

Peter Freestone, who spent 12 years as Freddie Mercury’s right-hand man, said he doubted a song like “Bohemian Rhapsody” could be made today due to changes in the music industry.

He explained that the late Queen singer had a way of working that might not be tolerated in the modern world, and so the ideas he brought to the groundbreaking 1975 hit would have struggled to survive all the way to the final piece.
