*** *** THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE OSCAR-WINNING, GOLDEN-GLOBE-WINNING FILM. 'Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted' Spectator'No one has captured better than Lesley-Ann Jones the magical, enchanting dualism of Freddie Mercury' The Times 'Truly definitive, truly Freddie, an energetic, entertaining and essential account' Sir Tim Rice 'This book grabs you with its opening, then builds. Insight and anecdote in perfect harmony' Simon Napier-Bell 'At last a massive tribute to a massive talent' Steve Harley, Cockney Rebel This is the definitive biography of Freddie Mercury, written by award-winning rock journalist Lesley-Ann Jones, who toured widely with Queen and formed lasting friendships with the band. Now, having secured access to the remaining band members and those who were closest to Freddie from childhood to death, Lesley-Ann has written the most in-depth account of one of music's best loved and most complex figures. Meticulously researched, sympathetic, unsensationalised, the book focuses on the period in the 1980s when Queen began to fragment, before their Live Aid performance put them back in the frame. In her journey to understand the man behind the legend, Lesley-Ann Jones has travelled from London to Zanzibar to India. Packed with exclusive interviews and told with the invaluable perspective that the twenty years since Mercury's death presents, Bohemian Rhapsody is the most up-to-date portrait of a legendary man.

    Bra och lättläst biografi. Gillade att den var saklig och inte grottade sig i alla "snaskiga detaljer" utan att fokus låg på musiken och Freddie som artist.

Rock journalist Lesley-Ann Jones is lucky enough to have known the man. She toured widely with Queen and formed lasting friendships with the band. It took a while for everyone to open up, but she eventually gained access to Freddie's colleagues and friends, and so we have this thoroughly researched portrait of the man behind the rock legend. * <i>Brisbane Times</i> * Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted ... full of perceptive and moving insights. * <i>Spectator</i> * 'A timely update coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Queen and the 20 years since their frontman's death'. * The <i>Sun</i> * Lesley-Ann Jones asserts that Freddie Mercury's was a "big, extravagant, multifaceted life", and the rock journalist has certainly done a sterling job of documenting it here. * <i>Daily Telegraph</i>, Australia * No one has captured better than Lesley-Ann Jones the magical, enchanting dualism of Freddie Mercury. * <i>The Times</i> *
