Bohemian Rhapsody: the Definitive Biography of Freddie Mercury

by Lesley-Ann Jones - £9.99  Hodder & Stoughton Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781444733693 | ISBN 10: 1444733699

This is the definitive biography of Freddie Mercury. Written by an award-winning rock journalist, Lesley-Ann Jones toured widely with Queen forming lasting friendships with the band. Now, having secured access to the remaining band members and those who were closest to Freddie, from childhood to death, Lesley-Ann has written the most in depth account of one of music`s best loved and most complex figures.
 
Meticulously researched, sympathetic, unsensational, the book - like the forthcoming film - will focus on the period in the 1980s when Queen began to fragment, before their Live Aid performance put them back in the frame.
 
In her journey to understand the man behind the legend, Lesley-Ann Jones has travelled from London to Zanzibar to India. Packed with exclusive interviews and told with the invaluable perspective that the twenty years since Mercury`s death presents, Freddie Mercury is the most up to date portrait of a legendary man.
 
Fully revised and updated edition.
