This is the definitive biography of Freddie Mercury. Written by an award-winning rock journalist, Lesley-Ann Jones toured broadly with Queen forming lasting friendships with the band. Now, having secured entry to the remaining band members and people who had been closest to Freddie, from childhood to dying, Lesley-Ann has written essentially the most in depth account of one of music's greatest beloved and most advanced figures. Meticulously researched, sympathetic, unsensational, the e book - just like the forthcoming movie - will concentrate on the interval within the 1980s when Queen started to fragment, earlier than their Live Aid efficiency put them again within the body. In her journey to know the person behind the legend, Lesley-Ann Jones has travelled from London to Zanzibar to India. Packed with unique interviews and informed with the invaluable perspective that the twenty years since Mercury's dying presents, Freddie Mercury is the freshest portrait of a legendary man. Fully revised and up to date version.
