Caption: Freddie Mercury was just about to go on stage at Hyde park with Queen when I was roaming around under the stage. I saw some lights on in between the scafolding and stage supports. I walked over and saw some chap in a white boiler suite being secured and being handed a microphone. I started chatting to him and I asked him what his name was, he said Freddie, I said my name is Danny and can I take a few photos? He said of course you can dear boy. So I took a few photos and then suddenly he was pushed on a lift up through a trap door onto the massive stage in Hyde Park in central London. I then walked out to the front of the stage and photpographed the show. Sothis was the first time I had met Freddie or seen Queen. They were utterly amazing.
