Throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, Queen was the pinnacle of British rock music. This was mostly due to the amazing presence of lead singer Freddie Mercury, a rock legend in his own right, whose commanding performances kept audiences coming back for more. He can’t be solely credited for the bands success, however, as guitarist Brain May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon each brought their own fantastic elements to each and every song.
Earning their first UK Number 1 with the controversially long Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975, the band went on to have worldwide success. They have had a long lasting impact on the world of music, with their songs still being widely regarded as classics. With 15 studio albums under their belt, Queen has been able to keep fans hooked for decades.
While the decline from the spotlight since the passing of Mercury in 1991 was inevitable, the bands success is still cherished as musical perfection. With the release of the 2018 biopic for Freddie Mercury and the band, titled Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen was once again brought to the forefront of popular music culture.
