Filmmaker Rudi Dolezal was a close friend of Freddie Mercury and has discussed how the Queen legend was thinking of forming a supergroup with Elton John and Rod Stewart.
Dolezal was a long-standing friend of Mercury and filmed Mercury’s final ever music video, Queen’s ‘These Are The Days Of Our Lives’. The video shot in 1991 was the last with the band before his death later that year.
Dolezal was often at Mercury’s infamous parties at his Kensington home and says that the three musicians had a lengthy chat about forming a band when both John and Stewart were in attendance one night.
Speaking to the New York Post, Dolezal explained, “He was the greatest housewife you can imagine,” “Freddie invited me to his private functions often, and, at one dinner party, the guests included Rod Stewart and Elton John. I remember there was a lot of bitching about other artists, and about themselves. I think Rod came up with the idea of forming a group called Nose, Teeth & Hair, because Rod had a big nose, Elton had problems with his hair and Freddie had his teeth!”
