“When he finished his studies I asked him: ‘What are you going to do, son?’, and he said he didn’t know. I remember him filling out of application forms for jobs and saying: ‘I hope I don’t get it.’ Most of our family are lawyers or accountants, but Freddie insisted the wasn’t clever enough and wanted to play music and sing. I felt particularly sad when he decided to leave home and move to a flat in West London. He was always playing music and an elderly neighbor complained about the noise, so he said it was time to go…. I remember one day he was watching Elvis Presley on TV and said: ‘I’m going to be like him one day.’… After he passed, I was watching the Olympic closing ceremony when my boy’s image suddenly appeared on a screen and I just I cried out, I miss him so much. They showed John Lennon too, but there was much more applause for my Freddie’, she says with a big cheeky smile.”
