Freddie Hospitality

One night, police visited future Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and his mates to ask them to control the noise. Mercury dutifully agreed and generously offered the officers some home-made brownies.

"I would love to have been a fly on the windscreen of their police car," he later remarked, "after about half an hour." Why? The band had filled their home-made brownies with marijuana.

["In October 1978, Queen threw a royal bash at a New Orleans hotel. The band invited 400 people and flew in the press from England, South America, and Japan. Party guests were enthusiastically by naked female mud-wrestling dwarfs, fire-eaters, Zulu dancers, and drag queens. Record executives lined up for admittance to a special back room, where a femal New Orleans native spent the entire evening on her knees, getting down to business."]
