Freddie Bulsara with Tim Staffell, Chris Smith & Paul Fielder at Ealing College.
Photograph by Paul Humberstone.
Freddie attended Ealing Technical College & School of Art from 1966-1969.
While three future members of Queen were grafting in local bands in various parts of the country, the teenage Freddie Bulsara was filling time with menial jobs in the catering department at Heathrow Airport and on a trading estate near his parents home in Feltham, Middlesex.
Freddie blossomed at Ealing College, whose alumni include Ronnie Wood and Pete Townsend. Initially Freddie studied to be an illustrator, his favourite subject being Jimi Hendrix, but music was his first love and Freddie was desperate to join a band.
At Ealing, Freddie gravitated naturally towards musicians. Two in particular were Chris Smith and Tim Staffell, who had formed a band called Smile. The band also comprised of Brian May and Roger Taylor.
