Editorial Reviews

Review

“The volume will surprise readers expecting a simple fan-focused, photo-filled celebrity biography...And Somebody to Love is a worthy and moving read with new information unknown to even ardent fans." Source: The Advocate

“It puts the life and tragic early death of Freddie Mercury, due to AIDS-related causes, into the context of one of the worst health crises of the twentieth century. Not only does it give a portrait of Mercury’s fascinating life, but it provides a concurrent picture of the epidemiology of a virus that has taken tens of millions senselessly…It’s the story of one of the world’s truly great rock stars, warts and all.” Source: A&U Magazine

“Fans of Queen and Mercury will have plenty to love in this rock biography, penned by Matt Richards and Mark Langthorne and chock-full of details about their hits—“Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “We Are the Champions,” the band’s show-stealing Live Aid performance in 1985 and much, much more. The book also offers a fascinating glimpse at Mercury’s secret gay life, such as his nights at the Mineshaft, a legendary gay club in New York.”  Source: POZ.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
