Overview

This classic account of the birth of a legendary group is the truly authentic version of Queen's rise to stardom. Author Mark Hodkinson interviewed over 60 friends and colleagues of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon to piece together a fascinating jigsaw of anecdotes from the days when the future superstars were playing with bands like The Reaction, The Opposition, 1984 and Sour Milk Sea. In the process of unearthing these rare stories the author also takes a revealing look at the sudden transformation of Queen that stardom brought. Intimate, surprising and meticulously researched, Queen-The Early Years is a riveting read accompanied by many previously unseen early photographs of the four band members.
