This is the definitive collection by the photographer who provided the essential Queen image. Including over 200 photos in full colour and black and white, the majority of which have never published before, together with contemporary quotes, Mick Rock recalls his life and extraordinary times with the best-selling rock band. Queen were the rarest of breeds: both genius in the studio and utterly brilliant performing live: a potent, magical mixture that has won them fans the world over. Mick Rock was fast becoming the glam-rock photographer du jour when he turned up at Imperial College in November 1973 to take his first shots of the up-and-coming group. Mick's continuing collaboration with Freddie, Brian, Roger and John lasted until 1976 and Queen's legendary free concert in Hyde Park. During this time he helped create the iconic album covers for "Queen II" and "Sheer Heart Attack" and conducted solo photo sessions with Freddie and Roger. Previously unseen out-takes and test Polaroids from these sessions are included in the book, as are over 120 live photographs, many of which are being published for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Looking back, it is obvious that Mick was a master of his art very early on. The images in this book...stand up fresh and untarnished by time. His handling of keylight and shade, his figuring of faces his awareness of sheer texture, are all superb. His pictures speak louder than worlds. Thank you, Mick Rock, for the excellence you achieved with us and for us. It was almost worth lying on the floor covered in Vaseline, having cold water thrown over us! - Brian MayRock may not have been the most consistent of photographers...yey he has produced genuine iconography.' Classic Rock
