This is the real and personal story behind the Queen phenomenon: One of the most extraordinary chapters in rock and roll history, now indelibly printed in the minds of millions throughout the world. It's a story beginning 25 years ago when John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor played together for the first time. Suddenly rock was no longer the same. Under Queen it became bigger, brasher, more extravagant and unashamedly more entertaining than ever before.
Queen set the milestones and landmarks for two generations 'Bohemian Rhapsody','We Will Rock You', 'We Are The Champions', Rock In Rio, Live Aid, the Magic Tour. The music, the concerts, the videos. The unforgettable moments. Queen have released 20 albums, sold more than 130 million records, and influenced legions of todays major artists, many of whom were there for the final tribute to Freddie at Wembley Stadium in April 1992.
