NEW BOOK, LONG LIVE QUEEN: ROCK ROYALTY DISCUSS FREDDIE, BRIAN, JOHN & ROGER, OFFERS UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE OF CLASSIC BAND
There is a reason why there have been countless books penned over the years about Queen and their legendary singer, Freddie Mercury - they were unquestionably one of the greatest and most universally beloved rock bands of all-time.
However, most of these books can be neatly filed into one of three categories - a recounting of the band’s history, an examination of the singer’s life story, or a collection of photographs.
Long Live Queen: Rock Royalty Discuss Freddie, Brian, John & Rogeris the first-ever book to be comprised solely of interviews conducted with renowned musicians, who discuss what they admire most about Queen, their favorite songs and albums, and other standout Queen-related memories (attending shows, meeting members, etc.) from throughout the years.
The result is a book that uncovers facts, insight, and analysis, and adds a new spin on what truly makes Queen the champions of the world.
