Going Underground #27 – Lesley-Ann Jones on Freddie Mercury

As the 30th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death approaches, we talk to Lesley-Ann Jones, author of four books on his life, including her latest Love Of My Life, about his life, his work and his controversies.

By Graeme Smith

Lesley-Ann knew Freddie better than most as one of the journalists who joined him and Queen on tour. Adjacent to all the goings-on while the band were on the road, who’s better placed to spill the beans on what the musical legend was really like?

In an interview with author and musician Miles Salter, and in her book Love of My Life, Lesley-Ann paints a vivid picture of the real Freddie Mercury. You can listen to the interview below and grab a copy of the book on Amazon.
