Renowned for their electrifying live performances and beloved for their music, Queen created one of the most compelling catalogs and lasting legacies in rock. The book befitting this larger-than-life rock band features: more than 500 photos and artifacts from around the globe, including stunning performance and offstage photographs (dozens of them previously unpublished), handbills, posters, backstage passes, tickets, T-shirts, LPs, and singles; a specially commissioned band history and an extensive discography, both by longtime U.K. music writer Phil Sutcliffe; sidebars and imagery from top rock writers and photographers like Jon Bream, Jim DeRogatis, Harry Doherty, Greg Kot, Daniel Nester, Denis O'Regan, Neal Preston, Michael Putland, Mick Rock, Sylvie Simmons, and many more; exclusive insights, personal artifacts, and ultra-rare photography from the longtime head of Queen's road crew, Peter Hince, as well as producer and personal friend Reinhold Mack; plus, specially gathered comments and reflections from longtime Queen and Freddie Mercury friend and collaborator Billy Squier, as well as Slash, Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe, Chris Squire of Yes, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Geddy Lee of Rush, Neil Diamond, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Adele, Kid Rock, and more!
