I wasn't going to buy this book...Seriously I wasn't, because I didn't see the point. I had read everything, listened to everything, and thought that I knew everything I needed to ever know about my hero, Freddie Mercury. To me, this was just a differently coloured version of the one I already have that holds pride of place on my bookshelf. Then I stumbled upon the 'Freddie Mercury - The Definitive biography' facebook page and saw that some of the comments were from people who had read the previous book and had actually bought this one too. What kind of fan am I?....What was i thinking?....Off I went to Amazon and I am glad I did. This is not just a book - this is an actual journey. I can say that I was on that plane with Lesley-Ann Jones and no-one can call me a liar because she brought me with her; She took me to Zanzibar, India, Back to London, I was with her at Live Aid and I was still with her until the last page. Lesley-Ann Jones has something I will always envy - she was there. Awesome read, well done Ms Jones.
