It was another close friend, famous musician Dave Clarke, who was there.
Freddie had slipped into unconsciousness that day, no longer taking his AIDS medications and the pain killers unable to counter his body’s suffering.
Dave Clark said: “The doctors had left, and we knew it was only a matter of time. We were alone, and when he passed away, I went downstairs to tell Phoebe, his PA, and Joe.”
Phoebe was Freddie’s name for Peter.
