In a new Interview with The Times, Queen legend Brian May revealed a little-known secret about Freddie Mercury’s health issues.
When asked about Freddie’s health, he said:
“The problem was actually his foot — and, tragically there was very little left of it. Once, he showed it to us at dinner.
And he said: ‘Oh, Brian, I’m sorry I’ve upset you by showing you that.’ And I said, ‘I’m not upset, Freddie, except to realize that you have to put up with so much terrible pain.’ ”
Brian May also said that he feels sorry about Freddie missing the antiretroviral drugs with just two months:
“He missed by just a few months. If it had been a bit later, he would still have been with us, I’m sure.”
