About the Author:

Lesley-Ann Jones is a journalist, newspaper columnist and broadcaster. The author of eight published books, she has enjoyed more than twenty-five years in music and the media. She lives in South-East London with her young children, the eldest having grown up and gone into the music business.

Review:

Rock journalist Lesley-Ann Jones is lucky enough to have known the man. She toured widely with Queen and formed lasting friendships with the band. It took a while for everyone to open up, but she eventually gained access to Freddie's colleagues and friends, and so we have this thoroughly researched portrait of the man behind the rock legend. * Brisbane Times * Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted ... full of perceptive and moving insights. * Spectator * 'A timely update coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Queen and the 20 years since their frontman's death'. * The Sun * Lesley-Ann Jones asserts that Freddie Mercury's was a "big, extravagant, multifaceted life", and the rock journalist has certainly done a sterling job of documenting it here. * Daily Telegraph, Australia * No one has captured better than Lesley-Ann Jones the magical, enchanting dualism of Freddie Mercury. * The Times *
