I have to admit that I had heard Bohemian Rhapsody for years and years. I liked it, of course, but I really got to know it all over again in Wayne's World. Yep. I was in college and a friend loved that movie so very much I think we watched it in the neighborhood of 25 times. Maybe more.
In the years to follow, I rediscovered so many Queen songs: You're My Best Friend, Death on Two Legs, Killer Queen, Flash Gordon (yep, even saw the movie), I Want to Break Free, Another One Bites the Dust (ooh, wait, I think that was a Homecoming theme song, too!), Bicycle, Under Pressure, Fat Bottomed Girls.... Really, I could keep going.
When you first open the book, there's a great history of Freddie Mercury and Queen. And I absolutely loved the section that talked about the amazing infectious qualities to Bohemian Rhapsody. (Another aside - I didn't know who Scaramouche was until my college English Lit classes.) Some really good stuff.
And then, you reach the photos. So beautiful and touching. I was a little sad looking through them, it made me miss him and his music so much. But it is also a wonderful tribute to Freddie. There are some stunning photos in there, with bits and pieces of Freddie's history woven throughout. I haven't even gotten to the audio interviews yet (CD included in book), I've been so lost in the photographs.Read more ›
ANYONE WHO LOVES FREDDIE WILL LOVE THIS BEAUTIFUL BOOK!
It is not just pictures there is a lot of info in here to read in the 1st part of the book. Yes some is pretty much in anything that is made about Freddie BUT there have been quite a few little things & fun facts that I didn't know. So I enjoyed that part of the book. Then it turns into all pictures w/ side notes of the info on the picture & that's pretty much it. BUT as I said if you love Freddie (& I am kinda obsessed) you will treasure this & I think it is actually at a really great price I would most defiantly have paid more! So you are getting a fantastic addition to your collection or if you are thinking of a gift for a your Freddie Freak Friend....This Is For You!
