Author Peter Freestone was Freddie Mercury's personal assistant for the last 12 years of his life. He lived with Mercury in London, Munich and New York, and was with him when he died. This is the most intimate account of Freddie Mercury's life ever written, by an author who was Freddie's 'chief cook and bottle washer, waiter...secretary and agony aunt.'From the famous names–including Elton John, Kenny Everett, Elizabeth Taylor and Rod Stewart–to the shadowy army of lovers and hangers-on, Peter Freestone saw them all play their part in the tragic-comedy that was Freddie Mercury's outrageous life. 'The myth of Mercury's debauched private life is well and truly debunked by the man who was there throughout the toothsome showman's later years in this affectionate portrait...'Q MAGAZINE
