So, Freddie is sitting there with a guitar, looking cool, hair a bit disheveled, slightly drunk (possibly), apartment probably smells of weed.....
Students haven't changed since the 1960s have they and yet each successive generation feels like they've reinvented society.... lol! It's a lovely pic though.
So these are a from a set of photos taken by Paul Humberstone. He was in a close circle of friends with Freddie in those college days and took these and a number of other shots in and around their student digs and in various gigs. Paul is a friend of my uncle and I accompanied him down to the Royal Albert Hall for the opening of the Freddie Photographic Exhibition back in '96.
There's a video of the opening night here: link
Long before he sold the rights to the photos, I was able to have a good look through them and indeed my Uncle (also part of that London crew) made me a special birthday card (maybe 1992 or so..) with the same image above before it was sold and reproduced. It's still sitting on top of the shelf looking down on me as I type!
Paul did a piece for his local newspaper (North Yorkshire) recently where he recounted some of his memories of being with Freddie. That article is here: link
He's a really nice guy and fancy being part of all that back in the swinging 60's!
Hope that answers the question.
