40 Years of Queen
Queen: one of the biggest bands ever. Sell-out tours, chart-topping records and stunning success for 40 years. Hundreds of millions of albums, singles and videos sold all over the world. They have broken records constantly: biggest ever paying crowd, longest number of weeks in the charts, headliners at the biggest festival ever and more. They have received accolades too numerous to list in full, but suffice to say 'Best Band', 'Best Album', 'Best Single', 'Best Video' and 'Best Live Act' feature again and again. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and given their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. 40 years of Queen is an official publication, and has been approved at every stage by the band. It shows and tells the story of a fantastically talented and popular group of musicians who have retained an enormous fan base throughout their entire history. The book showcases the band, its members, recordings and concerts through images and the written word, as well as through unique pieces of memorabilia from Queen's private collection.
