I'd like to read these as well, just to see what someone says to the press when they're desperate for money. Shame they dont' seem to be online anywhere.

No one's putting a gun to your head and making you read them.

Took a quick look but didn't see any of the Prenter articles.

Thanks anyway.

Just listening to "Stealin" (the 10 minute jam version), and I had a sudden epiphany:

This track is Freddie's 'FUCK YOU' to Paul Prenter!! Listen to the lyrics, and the call and response of the multilayered lead vocals, and it all makes sense.

It would probably be better for your health just to stare at the sun for a few hours

Paul Prenter was crazy. Always got drunk and told his boyfriends he wanted to “mate” with them

the only one I could find. May 4th 1987 copy of The Sun:

http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/KXUAAOSwBNFau6yD/s-l1600.jpg

good luck reading that! I manage to make out some of it...

there's also Freddie's reply to the whole Prenter story printed in News Of The World - May 10th 1987:
http://www.queencuttings.com/dblog/articolo.asp?articolo=194

legitimacy of this article is questionable though. not sure if Freddie would go to the papers and acknowledge Prenter's story.

I doubt very much that Freddie went, of all the papers, to the News Of The World with a reply to Prenter's „story“. After all, it came from the same crap-camp as The Sun - Murdoch's.
Roger Taylor's remark that Prenter had been a very subversive person, might make sense to him and the rest of the band. But the one who was to blame for any Prenter-led fraction within the band had to be Freddie, because he obviously did let Prenter lead proceedings by and large for a while. Taking drugs is always going to go hand in hand with an excuse for not having to take any self-responsibilty. Freddie had been on a downward spiral for quite some time and Prenter was just one of his henchmen during those years. No wonder it bit back in the form of „friends“ selling friendships to Murdoch's fuckers.
