The Freddie you know.... plus some!
on 5 March 2008
I loved this book. It was quite cleverly written and very informative. As a massive fan, a lot of the quotes and stories I had read or heard before, either via the web, documentaries or similar Queen books. What's good about this book is it let's you into what Freddie thought about individual songs and albums, and to an extent the rest of the group... although mostly in a positive sense. It also mentions his celebrity friends like Bowie, Rod Stewart and Elton, and what he thought about other acts which either grew up with Queen or newer acts which he liked or disliked. It does jump back and fourth, but they have tried writing each chapter in a way that follows a realistic timeline to when he said a particular quote (not always accurate though). All in all, it's the nearest you'll get to a realistic and honest book on the greatest entertainer the world has and ever will see.
