That time Queen’s Freddie Mercury dressed Princess Diana in men’s clothing and sneaked her into a London gay club
While many performers regard their on-stage personas as something of an alter ego, far removed from their more placid, ordinary selves, Queen frontman Freddie Mercury very much lived up to his own grandiose, larger-than-life reputation.
In his private life, Mercury was notorious for throwing the wildest, most bizarre parties that pushed the bar of rock’n’roll excess into new heights. In 1987, for example, he threw one of the freddie-mercury-the-maddest-stories-about-rocks-best-loved-hellraiser-769352″ data-ylk=”slk:craziest parties;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “craziest parties the rock world had seen, complete with nude waiters and waitresses, men biting the heads off of live chickens, and naked wrestlers. His penchant for partying was known amongst his friends too, such as Elton John who once said: “Freddie Mercury could out-party me, which is saying something. We’d be up for nights, sitting there at 11 in the morning, still flying high.”
