Freddie Mercury gives fans unprecedented access to one of the world's greatest artists and showmen. This official book contains superb photographs of Freddie Mercury in all aspects of his life. There are photographs from the private collections of his parents, Mr and Mrs Bulsara, and Brian May, as well as portraits by many famous contemporary photographers.

Freddie Mercury 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. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates Freddie's life as part of the 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 his life.
