Queen The Recluse John Deacon

Roger Taylor spoke about the terrible events that prompted John Deacon to leave the band.
Brian May talks about informing Deacon about any plans or events, but accepting his silence as consent: “This is his choice. He does not contact us. John was pretty delicate all the time. "
In a new documentary, Taylor says that the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991 served as a catalyst for Deacon's departure: “John got mad and decided that he could no longer deal with the music business. It was a strange period. Indeed, the group was over. "
Queen fan club president Jackie Smith said: “John gave up after Freddie died. He and Freddie really were opposites, because John is so shy, and he was the youngest in the group. Freddie took him under his wing, and they were very close all these years. Freddie distracted attention, and without Freddie I don’t think that John could have run into this. "
After the death of Freddie, the Deacon appeared on the stage three times with the group and played on the final recording of “Nobody but you” (Good Die Young only) from the 1997 Queen Rocks album.
In the same year, he completely left the music, saying; “It makes no sense to continue. It’s impossible to replace Freddie. ”
