It turns out when David Bowie and Freddie Mercury hit the studio to record 1981’s "Under Pressure," it wasn't entirely friendly.
"It wasn’t easy because we were all precocious boys and David was very… forceful, yes,” Queen's Brian May recalls. “Freddie and David locked horns, without a doubt. But those are the things that happen in a studio, that’s when the sparks fly and that’s why it turned out so great.”
Aside from giving us some behind-the-scenes gossip, May adds that there may be some unheard recordings from the sessions out there. While he doesn't promise any will ever be released, he points out "not all of what we did in those sessions has ever come to light, so there’s a thought.”
