Considering Mercury's flamboyant nature and wild adventures, this book could have revealed so much more a A disappointing read. Considering Mercury's flamboyant nature and wild adventures, this book could have revealed so much more about this larger-than-life personality. Apr 13, Joana Gimeno rated it liked it Shelves: reviewed , challenge. I fairly enjoyed it for the most part, especially when the author explained the creative process behind some songs and albums, Queen's and also his solo albums.
I actually learned quite a lot that I hadn't heard before, like who were his role models, and artists he respected and was inspired by. As well as I enjoyed reading about which Queen member initiated which song or melody. For example, he included numerous testimonies of people that once knew Freddie, but this is so repetitive, as they all say pretty much the same.

Also, it includes some gossip from Freddie's last years sex, drugs Not saying the author has to forget the "bad" fame of Freddie and just focus on the good aspects of his life, but the way the author treated the topics felt as if I was reading a magazine than a biography book. That was a big turn off for me. Nov 04, Brian O'Leary rated it really liked it. A must read for any queen fan, loved the parts about how he handled his money Better than I thought it would be, actually, but I always take these things with a pinch of salt.
May 15, East Bay J rated it it was ok Shelves: music-bios. I absolutely adore Queen and feel they easily rank as one of the best bands to ever play some rock. All four members brought immense talent to the band, but Freddie Mercury was the visual and vocal focal point. Too often, bios end up being either puff pieces where a writer gushes about the subject of the bio, or they come off as paid advertisements.
The Show Must Go On
A major problem for me is the sheer repetition. Sky interviewed a lot of people who knew Mercury and they all say the same thing; he was a kind, generous, wonderful, down to earth and amazingly talented individual. Facts are also repeated ad nauseam. Sky tells us at least twice that, while Roger Taylor is not gay, he and Freddie were closest in the band.
And I will never, ever, ever forget that Mercury did a lot of coke or that his opera hero is Montserrat Cabballe. The chapter subjects are bizarre and the chapter contents all over the place. Sky talks about himself in the course of the book, as well, which, as usual, drives me bonkers. Be content your name is on the cover. This may be a typo but it seems unlikely. These are the facts that make books like this interesting! Apr 12, frankie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: freddie fans.
Pretty good bio on Freddie Sep 04, Kristie rated it did not like it Shelves: read-in A very dubious account of Freddie's life. Oct 12, Tonarius rated it it was ok. I have read the Dutch translation. It's not a very good book. That's a shame because its subject is the greatest showman ever!
