Under Pressure With David Bowie And Freddie Mercury Like You've Never Heard Before.

" David came in one night and we were playing other people's songs for fun, just jamming. In the end, David said, 'This is stupid, why don't we just write one?" So after a near 24-hour marathon session at Mountain Studios in Montreux, Switzerland, Queen's hit single was born.
