    I know, Thomas. Like many on-stage comics, he was a perfectionist.

    But he paid for it - he got stressed about his performance and being onstage. His doctors prescribed regular Librium (chlordiazepoxide), common in those days, but a mistake.

    Freddie became addicted, and a complete mess. He had a terrible time getting off the librium, and was not the same again - great pity - one of the few that did not need 'jokes' to have the audience in fits!

    I have seen that clip many times, and I still nearly wet my knickers when I see it.
