Freddie Mercury’s hair almost caught FIRE in I Was Born To Love You music video

The Queen singer made some extraordinary music videos in his lifetime. And now the second episode of video podcast series Finding Freddie has explored the shooting of his solo ones. Music video director David Mallet features as a talking head and revealed how Freddie Mercury’s hair almost caught fire during the filming of I Was Born To Love You.

I Was Born To Love You was a 1985 song released as a single on Freddie’s Mr Bad Guy solo album.

Of the incident, Mallet said: “I also remember with Freddie in front of those mirrors, I wanted to give him a halo.

“To give someone with black hair a halo is quite difficult.

“And we put this sodding great light above his head and after about half an hour, his hair started smoking literally.”

I Was Born To Love You was reworked by Queen after Freddie’s death for their final studio album Made in Heaven.

The 1995 new version of the song had the other members of the band playing their instrumental parts over the original solo track, turning the disco tune into a rock song.

Meanwhile, Brian May has been touring with Queen and Adam Lambert down under.

And following their performance at charity gig Fire Fight Australia last month, the guitarist shared a Live Ai backstage comparison.
