'Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted'
SPECTATOR

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
No one has captured better than Lesley-Ann Jones the magical, enchanting dualism of Freddie Mercury. * The Times *
Lesley-Ann Jones asserts that Freddie Mercury's was a "big, extravagant, multifaceted life", and the rock journalist has certainly done a sterling job of documenting it here. * Daily Telegraph, Australia *
'A timely update coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Queen and the 20 years since their frontman's death'. * The Sun *
Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted ... full of perceptive and moving insights. * Spectator *
Rock journalist Lesley-Ann Jones is lucky enough to have known the man. She toured widely with Queen and formed lasting friendships with the band. It took a while for everyone to open up, but she eventually gained access to Freddie's colleagues and friends, and so we have this thoroughly researched portrait of the man behind the rock legend. * Brisbane Times *

“Is what it says”

I bought this because I'd borrowed it from a library and wanted to keep a copy. If you're at all a Freddie fan, or just curious, this is the book. It must have taken Lesley-Ann Jones years to research.... More
