"Freddie was a member of the family."
Queen guitarist Brian May believes that Freddie Mercury would continue performing with the legendary band if he were still alive.

In a new interview, Brian May argued that Freddie Mercury, who died in 1991 of AIDS complications, would still be part of the Queen family if he had not passed away.

"He would still say, 'Oh, I have to do my solo things,' but he would go back to his family to do what we do," Brian May told Simon Mayo and Greatest Hits Radio "It's funny that I feel more and more that he's with us somehow, I may be romantic, but Freddie is in my life every day."

"She is always in my thoughts and I can always feel what she would say in a certain situation. What would Freddie think, would he like this, would he laugh at this or whatever. "It's so much of a legacy that we created, that will always be the case."

Brian May has admitted that he will never get over the death of Freddie Mercury, but he is comforted by the fact that the legendary singer lived "a wonderful life".

"You never stop mourning the loss of a family member and Freddie was a family member, but you get to the point where you are at peace and you think, 'My God, the guy had a wonderful life,'" he said.

"We have created wonderful things together that still make people happy and there is an acceptance of that and a joy that everything happened. "How amazing it is that everything happened," he said.
