Features
Queen by : Queen


In 2011; the world celebrated the 40th anniversary of Queen – one of the most innovative; glamorous; and influential bands in history. Over the course of the band's career; they have grossed 170 million album sales worldwide; have written 18 number one hits; and performed 700 concerts. While some acts enjoy a forte of incredible showmanship; a virtuoso instrumentalist; a strong; charismatic leader; or a prolific sole songwriter; Queen beholds all of these strengths. Although Freddie Mercury and Brian May are recognized as the prime songwriters; each of the members have penned number one hits; including classics such as “Bohemian Rhapsody” (Freddie Mercury); “Another One Bites the Dust” (John Deacon); “A Kind of Magic” (Roger Taylor); and “We Will Rock You” (Brian May).

Beginning with their debut Queen in 1973 (EMI/Electra Records); the band took the UK by storm; then conquered the United States along with rest of the world; serving as pioneers of stadium rock and enjoying commercial success and momentum well into the 1980s (marked by the famous Live Aid appearance in 1985) through the early 1990s. The whirlwind took a startling pause when singer Freddie Mercury passed away from AIDS on November 24; 1991. The living members have forged ahead and remain great music makers.

The Complete Illustrated Lyrics is the first book of its kind. Never before has there been a complete Queen lyric book. The hundreds of images that accompany the songs range from handwritten lyrics to rare photographs from the stage to the studio. Also included is a complete discography; pairing each song to the album on which it was originally released. Designed by the band's longtime creative director; Richard Gray; the bo
