    Perspectives: Alfie Boe - Freddie Mercury on ITV Player

    One of Alfie Boe's greatest influences has always been the enigmatic frontman of Queen, Freddie Mercury, with his own musical career being fused with a passion for the rock band. As an early rock-opera experiment, a young Boe made a demo for Queen’s sound engineers at Abbey Road, and last year performed on stage with its lead guitarist, Brian May. In this film, Alfie explores the life of his hero to discover more about the man behind the music. Including unseen footage of Freddie Mercury at college, soon after his family arrived in England, just how did the flamboyant persona emerge and what lay behind Freddie's move from rock to opera. Directed by Harvey Lilley for Brook Lapping.

    Freddie's 'Winter Warmer'

    Peter Freestone's Chili Con Carne Recipe

    "I used to make it when Freddie wanted something filling and warm, generally it was a winter warmer. It also made regular appearances at Freddie’s parties as he always wanted hot food served. This was the beef representative. We always had a lamb curry, this chilli and jambalaya for the hot dishes." Peter Freestone, Blog 68, www.freddiemercury.com

    Chilli Con Carne

    500gm lean minced beef
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    1 beef stock cube
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground coriander
    1 teaspoon chilli powder
    1 410gm tin chopped tomatoes
    1 410gm tin red kidney beans
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    Salt and pepper

    Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Cook the onions and garlic for about 7-10 minutes until they are soft. Add the meat and cook for about 15 minutes until starting to brown. Mix in the stock cube, cumin, coriander, chilli powder and seasoning and cook for a further 10-15 minutes. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Cover and cook gently for at least an hour. This can cook gently for longer with no detriment to the taste. Add the drained kidney beans and cook for a further ½ hour. We always served this with plain boiled rice.

TRIBUTE ZONE

I am pleased that I have the opportunity to tell you my Freddie Story within this new website.

It was late in the year 2006 on a very boring evening when I was zapping...

Hello and welcome to the new official Freddie Mercury website!

A TRIBUTE TO FREDDIE MERCURY

In 1974 I became aware of Queen because of the single "Killer Queen" and I was infected with the Queen virus due to the uniqueness of the voice and the emanation of Freddie Mercury. Because of my childlike age of 11 ...
