The "Queen Illustrated Biography" is a lovely book just published. The press blurb is as follows:
"Queen: The Ultimate Illustrated History of the Crown Kings of Rock", now available.
Written by noted music journalist Phil Sutcliffe, this tribute covers everything Queen fans will want to know about the band that gave electrifying live performances and created a lasting legacy of rock music, taking the reader from the band's childhood, meeting, the start of this riveting, unforgettable band's formation and the start of their climb to success, Freddie Mercury's death, and the return with Paul Rodgers.
Featuring over 500 photographs - many unpublished till now - and artifacts from around the world(handbills, posters, backstage passes, tickets, t-shirts, LP's, singles), plus a specially commissioned band history and extensive discography, sidebars and imagery form top rock writes and photographers, insights and personal photographs from the longtime head of Queen's road crew Peter Hince, and producer and personal friend Reinhold Mack, as well
as comments, reflections, and praise from noted musicians like Tommy Lee, Chris Squire, Rob Halford, Neil Diamond, Adele, Kid Rock, and others.
From wild and excessive parties, to professional and mesmerizing performances, even Brian May's doctorate, Queen Illustrated is a wealth of information, glamour, and a fitting tribute to the greatest rock band ever, and certain to appeal to your members!"
