Next Friday, a box set devoted to Freddie Mercury's career outside of Queen, Never Boring, will hit record store shelves. In advance of its release, Hollywood Records has put out a restored video of "Living on My Own," which was originally found on his only solo album, 1985's Mr. Bad Guy.
The video has a controversial past. On his 39th birthday, Mercury famously threw a party at Old Mrs. Henderson's, a Munich transvestite club, inviting 300 friends, including Brian May, Mary Austin and Boy George, and told them to dress in drag, with black and white being the only colors allowed. Mercury had the decadence filmed and made into a video.
