Fit to be Crowned: Queen's Mercury Rising
Mick Brown, Rolling Stone, 5 May 1977
NEW YORK — Queen's Freddie Mercury just loves to be pampered. He says it conserves his energies for more important things. And, anyway, he likes people around him at all times — even at home in London, surrounded by his Erte prints, his Hokusai woodcuts and lacquered Japanese furniture, his Aretha Franklin and Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler records and his piano. He supposes it's because he grew up in an English boarding school in India (his father was a civil servant commuting among the colonies) and there were always people around.
