Freddie Mercury was the face of Queen for 20 years and this lavish book celebrates him as one of the key players in the make-up of the influential British music scene.

Freddie Mercury was an iconic singer who was hugely popular throughout his brilliant music career, as the singer of Queen and as a solo artist. The world mourned his untimely death in 1991 but he was incredibly prolific and left behind a rich legacy of recordings, not all of which have been released to date.

2012 is Freddie's twentieth anniversary year and sees a reissue of the ground-breaking album he recorded with Montserrat Caballe, Barcelona,. Everyone is talking about the forthcoming movie that stars Sacha Baron Cohen as the great man, and Queen is still one of the most popular bands around!

This lavishly illustrated book celebrates one of the key players in the make-up of the influential British music scene, and his colourful life is lovingly and painstakingly recounted in pictures and insightful text. Famed as an electric showman with no equal, these images capture the man in the moment through many stages of a colourful life.
