Freddie Mercury - 30 Years Gone
One of rock and roll's most original and influential bands, Queen revamped popular rock with such seminal songs as Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites the Dust and many others. This LIFE special edition tells the story of the extraordinary band that inspired the 2019 Golden Globe winning biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. Led by flamboyant, game-changing front man Freddie Mercury, as well as guitarist Brian May, Queen captivated worldwide audiences and played to packed stadiums, never more dramatically than at Live Aid in 1985, when the band outshone many of music's top performers and stole the show. That was one of Queen's final hurrah's before Mercury's death in 1991. Now, with the success of Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek, Queen is as relevant as ever. This special edition from LIFE is filled with remarkable photographs and a beautifully told and deeply researched narrative of the band, celebrating Queen¿s amazing journey on stage and off.
