Queen once employed a man to cover himself in meat

Queen once employed a man who covered himself in meat.

The We Will Rock You hitmakers had a member of staff whose job was to hire "unusual" people to entertain guests at their parties, including the bizarre food fan, who "freaked out" people.

Drummer Roger Taylor explained: "We had a man whose job was to find unusual people. In America, he hired a guy whose thing was to lie on the ground covered in these great big cold meat collations that Americans love.

"He would be completely covered by meat, then he would shift and make the meats move. The idea was to freak people out, and at US $125, he was good value I thought."

While Roger admits the group - which also included Brian May, John Deacon and the late Freddie Mercury - had "moments of over-indulgence", he insists he always knew his limits.

He added: "It's a dangerous path, no question about it, and a lot of people fall by the wayside.

"But I always had an inbuilt sense of survival. I remember every so often thinking, 'Now that's enough."
