The Little Guide to Freddie Mercury: The show must go on

A charismatic performer and frontman to Queen, Freddie Mercury is regarded as one of the greatest rock singers in music history.
Bursting with all the famed wit, wisdom and wisecracks that made the late, great showman's larger-than-life career so compelling, this tiny tome is home to all of Freddie's most famous, infamous, and funniest flights of spoken fancy. From controversial interview quotes to candid life philosophies, through his legendary performance at Live Aid in 1985 to his final days as a solo artist, everything he ever said (almost) is here.
"A lot of people slammed 'Bohemian Rhapsody', but who can you compare that to? Name one group that's done an operatic single."
-Freddie, on 'Bohemian Rhapsody', interview with Circus magazine, March 1977.
"I think Queen songs are pure escapism, like going to see a good film – after that, people can go away, and go back to their problems."
-Freddie, on the magic of his band's songs, interview with Melody Maker, May 1981.
