Freddie Mercury (5 September 1946 - 24 November 1991)
"I am a romantic, but I do put up a barrier around myself, so it is hard for people to get in and to know the real me… Fame and success have brought me everything, except a loving, on-going relationship. I seem to eat people up and destroy them no matter how hard I try to make things work. Sometimes I wake up in a cold sweat, screaming with fear because I’m so alone. That’s why I go out looking for someone who will love me, even if it’s just for a one-night stand. I fall in love far too quickly, and I end up getting hurt and scarred. It seems I just can’t win.”
