Queen are one of the world's most successful rock bands of all time, with a total of 18 number one albums and 18 number one singles. After early experimentation with prog, hard rock and heavy metal, the band developed their more radio-friendly style that has made them loved the world over. The release of A Night at the Opera in 1975 gained the band international success, featuring 'Bohemian Rhapsody', which was to stay at number one in the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks. With anthems such as 'We Will Rock You' and 'We Are the Champions', they became one of the biggest stadium rock bands in the world. Queen is an unofficial, intriguing review of their path to mega success. Covering all the major events in their long career, the book is accompanied by revealing and evocative images.

About the Author:

Hugh Fielder (author) can remember the 1960s even though he was there. He can remember the 1970s and 1980s because he was at Sounds magazine (RIP) and the 1990s because he was editor of Tower Records' TOP magazine. He has shared a spliff with Bob Marley, a glass of wine with David Gilmour, a pint with Robert Plant, a cup of tea with Keith Richards and a frosty stare with Axl Rose. He has watched Mike Oldfield strip naked in front of him and Bobby Womack fall asleep while he was interviewing him.
Mark Beaumont (foreword) is an author, broadcaster and award-winning music writer for publications including NME, The Guardian, The Times, Shortlist and Classic Rock. He has spent almost twenty years documenting the highs and lows of rock'n'roll's greatest names, interviewing everyone from Keith Richards and Paul McCartney to the biggest bands of today. He is the author of several books.
