Boy About Town Number 45: Mamma Mia


Chapter by Chapter excerpts from Boy About Town: A Memoir, published by Windmill Books/William Heinemann.

It was a concert, and it was the Hammersmith Odeon, and it was for the biggest group in the land right now and I wasn’t about to complain. Standing on my seat, trying to peer over the heads of everybody in front of me, I saw Freddie Mercury, dressed all in white, playing a white piano during ‘The Prophet’s Song’, a highlight from their new LP (called, but of course, A Night at the Opera). I could hear Brian May applying tricks to a lengthy guitar solo that overdubbed itself many times. I heard ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ broken into two or more sections, which was a little strange, and I heard all their previous big hits, including ‘Now I’m Here’ and ‘Killer Queen’ and the one that first made them famous, back at the peak of glam, ‘Seven Seas of Rhye.’
