9781784187712: Queen Unseen: My Life with the Greatest Rock Band of the 20th Century

For more than a decade, Peter Hince worked alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the world and heading up their road crew. Here he recalls the highlights of those years. He was with Freddie Mercury when he composed "Crazy Little Thing Called Love;" he made sure that Freddie's stage performances went without a hitch; and he was often there to witness Freddie's famed tantrums. He was also party to the sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Packed with Peter's own photos, including never-before-seen shots of Freddie and his female lover Mary, this warm and witty book is a must-read for any Queen fan.

Book Description John Blake Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Imagine being alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the world and being there as they perform at some of the best and biggest music venues in the world. Peter Hince didn t have to imagine: for more than a decade, he lived a life that other people can only dream of as he worked with Queen as head of their road crew. In 1973, Queen was the support act for Mott the Hoople, for whom Peter was a roadie. Back then, Queen had to content themselves with being second on the bill and the world had not yet woken up to the flamboyant talent of Freddie Mercury. Peter started working full time for Queen just as they were making A Night at the Opera, the album which catapulted them to international stardom. In this intimate and affectionate book, Peter recalls the highlights of his years with the band. He was with Freddie when he composed Crazy Little Thing Called Love ; he was responsible for making sure that Freddie s stage performances went without a hitch - and was often there to witness his famed tantrums! He was also party to the sex, drugs and rock n roll which are invariably part of life on the road with a rock band. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781784187712
