The Queen's historic bassist has rejected any project related to the band since Freddie Mercury's death.
It's a postcard as sweet as (at some point) unthinkable: Brian May and Roger Taylor, dresses, attend the red carpet in the Golden Globes. Queen musicians go to the ceremony as producers of & Bohemian Rhapsody & # 39; biopick that dramatizes the history of the legendary British band. Still, as a project related to queen in the last 22 years, there is 1 live member of the band who is shining off their absence: John Deacon
The Queen's bassist has maintained one low profile since 1997, when he decided to leave the group against May and Taylor plans to continue without mercury. Unlike their peers, Deacon has not played in any project related to queen and in fact it is barely visible in public.
Why? Since the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991, Deacon was critical of any attempt to move forward with the band, despite attending some meetings. "As far as I'm concerned, we've come in. There is no point in moving forward, it would be impossible to replace Freddie," he said at that time.
After recording the posthumous song & Nbsp; No, but you (just the good death young) & # 39; for the compilation & # 39; Queen Rocks & # 39; (1997), the bassist announced his retirement from music. Then he refused to appear with May and Taylor in the introduction of Queen to Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame 2001, and also to join the band with the band Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert in the voices
Despite all this, it recently told the press that the deacon approved the production of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and that is still involved in the Queen's financial conditions. But he didn't want to be an executive producer like his colleagues. In that sense, we assume that he also wanted to maintain his privacy and not walk around the red carpet of the Golden Globes.
This is how he looks at 67 today:
