Freddie Mercury and David Bowie are two of Britain’s biggest rock stars of the 20th century. Both have now left us, but their incredible legacies live on through their sensational back catalogues. And in the early days of their musical careers, the two certainly crossed paths and maybe in more ways than one.

Lesley-Anne Jones, who toured with both David Bowie and Queen has written a new book on Freddie Mercury’s love life and a new extract in The Times includes quotes from the Ziggy Stardust star on his relationship with him.

The author remembers how Bowie let her write her first book about the Queen singer at his house in Mustique, as he said: “[I’m] so f***ing fond of Freddie Mercury.”

The two music legends met each other in 1969 when Bowie performed at Ealing Tech, where the future Queen star studied art.

Bowie remembered how they bumped into each other in Kensington Market where Freddie worked at a stall selling boots and managed to get him a pair of platforms for next to nothing when he was still skint.
