Former Queen bass player and songwriter John Deacon hasn't performed with Brian May and Roger Taylor in over 20 years and it's been almost as long since they last spoke. According to drummer Roger Taylor, "he freaked out!"
'Deaky' was the youngest and last member to join the band so Freddie Mercury sort of protected him and watched out for him.
With Freddie gone, Roger Taylor said, "John freaked out and decided he really couldn’t deal with being in the music business anymore, It was an odd period. Really the band was over."
May adds, "I think losing Freddie was very hard for him as well. He found that incredibly hard to process, to the point where actually playing with us made it more difficult."
