Queen is undeniably one of the most celebrated rock bands on the planet. Charismatic frontman Freddie Mercury, lead guitar maestro Brian May, funk genius bassist John Deacon, and explosive drummer Roger Taylor comprise the legendary band. Starting their career in the early 70’s, the band drew on multiple rock sub-genres, until hitting the jackpot with songs like “Killer Queen“, “Love of My Life“, and the track considered to be one of the most influential rock songs to date, “Bohemian Rhapsody“.
Queen has recently attracted worldwide attention following Freddie Mercury and the band’s biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. Fans new and old alike rejoiced at this celebration of Mercury’s life and Queen’s journey as a band.
