Queen was renowned for electrifying performances, envied for rumors of rock excess, and beloved for music that melded an array of genres. Now available in a nicely priced paperback edition comes the first history befitting this larger-than-life rock band. Packed with stunning performance and offstage photographs—dozens of them previously unpublished—as well as handbills, posters, backstage passes, tickets, T-shirts, LPs, and singles gathered from around the globe, this is the ultimate visual history for Queen fans everywhere. A history of the band spans the pre-Queen years to current work with Paul Rodgers. Complementing this thorough account are reviews of all studio and live albums; complete tour dates; an extensive discography; reflections on the band and their music from some of rock’s top performers past and present; and exclusive insights from their former crew.
