Selling your Queen Memorabilia?
Queen formed in London in 1970 with founder members Freddy Mercury, Brian May and Roger Taylor with bassist John Deacon completing the classic line up in 1971.
Prior to Freddie Mercury joining Queen he had been with the Liverpool band Ibex and briefly with Sour Milk Sea, whilst Brian May had formed Smile in 1968, with soon to be band member Roger Taylor who had previously cut his musical teeth in the 1960’s with the Cornish band The Reaction.
Queen’s early album recordings produced by Roy Thomas Baker leant towards progressive and hard rock music and they quickly became an accomplished live act performing at established London venues; The Rainbow Theatre, Hammersmith Odeon and Imperial College. Their hard work earnt them a support slot with Mott the Hoople on their 1974 USA tour.
After their first transatlantic hit ‘Killer Queen’ they would soon record the ubiquitous ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ which changed everything for Queen overnight.
‘Sheer Heart Attack’, ‘Night at The Opera’ and ‘A Day at The Races’ are highly regarded albums in a period when there was intense competition.
Queen scored a number of hit singles and albums on both sides of the Atlantic in the late 1970’s before becoming a more radio friendly band and early innovator in the age of MTV in the 1980’s.
Live Queen performances were often unrivalled. Indeed their performance at Live Aid in 1985 is viewed by many as the ultimate live performance. This sparked a large revival of interest in the band which would sadly end with Freddy Mercury’s tragic illness and bring a curtain down on the classic line up.
