Freddie Mercury: The Definite Biography LESLEY-ANN JONES
It is 20 years since Freddie Mercury died and still the biographies keep coming. A little research suggests that this is the eighth or ninth and several use the definitive word! I guess his fan base just keeps growing and so there will always be people out there to buy yet another biography. And no doubt there will be others who collect everything written about the great, complex musician.
Author Lesley-Ann Jones was the Daily Mail Rock Correspondent and she toured widely with Queen who were formed 40 years ago. Hodder & Stoughton - $39.99
