The life of Freddie Mercury is full of interesting and sweet tales that help to paint a better picture of his life.
An interesting one and far, far away from heartbreak is his time trying to record with Michael Jackson -- and Jackson's Llama according to Contact Music:
The late star's manager Jim 'Miami' Beach says, "They got on well except for the fact that I suddenly got a call from Freddie, saying, 'Miami, dear, can you get on over here... You've got to get me out of here. I'm recording with a llama... I've had enough and I want to get out."
And it seems Mercury lived to regret walking away from the project - in a lost interview recovered for the new Dvd, Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender, he says, "I think one of the tracks would have been on the Thriller album if I had finished it, but I missed out."
