About this deal

L’unico difetto di questo libro è che non è strutturato, per ovvi motivi: Freddie è morto prima che si potesse fargli un’intervista in vista di una sua biografia ufficiale e quello che abbiamo qui è una raccolta di quello che ha detto nel corso di molti anni su diversi temi. Prior to starting this book I told myself I would give it an honest star-rating that was not at all influenced by my Freddie Mercury-loving bias. I look back at myself, and think oh my God, how could I have done that, wearing black nail varnish, the long hair and the make-up.

Desde hace una semana es lo único que escucho en Spotify "Queen"me cuesta tener que dejar el libro por compromisos personales y solo me resta decir que grande eras Freddie Mercury, me he convertido en otra fan, nunca es tarde para descubrir grandes cosas que la vida te pueda deparar y me voy a hacer a ser posible con parte de su discografía.

Also, putting all of his words on a page really makes you realize how intelligent and articulate of a person he was. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. BUT for us he will live on in the music of Queen powered by those that were intimate with him as a band. the way this is narrated, through interviews with Freddie himself over the years, are much more informative and truly shows how he was and what he thought about himself and his beloved Queen. Freddie Mercury died, aged just 45, but he left a legacy of incredible music and incredible performances.

So, what you need to know about this book is that it is not an autobiography in the usual sense of the world. Unfortunately, the interviews and videos of them, in general, are very bad quality (they're so old), so I decided to read a book about them to find out more and this book is the first one I picked up. In 20 chapters, 194 pages and nearly 73,000 words—and 45 years in the making—Freddie covers it all, and then some! Instead of a biography, in which the subject’s life is presented in a timeline and with a set of sources by a biographer, this book is put together to be Freddie Mercury’s own words.Freddie Mercury was the most interesting and charming performer I had the bad luck to not see -I was a child when he died-.

Se la cosa vi può consolare, io penso che ci siamo tuttə fattə un’idea di lui che, se siamo fortunatə, è un frammento della sua personalità: è stato uno di quei personaggi che entrano nelle nostre categorie mentali e si divertono a mettervi scompiglio. Freddie’s own personal story is one of pursuing a dream, dealing with wealth and fame, looking back and having no regrets, reflecting on getting old, his legacy, and death.Es por esto que me decidí a leer en principio la biografía contada por él obviamente en su idioma y me he hecho con varios libros más. Funny, irreverent, poignant and never boring, this is the closest we'll ever come to an autobiography. I think Queen songs are pure escapism, like going to see a good film – after that, people can go away, and go back to their problems. Yo conservaba varios vinilos de mis padres, conocía poco sobre ellos ya que nací en 1990 ,pero no sabía el alcance del talento de este grupo;inconmensurables,inigualables, inimitables.

Luego de ese éxito hubieron otros como "Radio Gaga", "Another one bites the dust" escritas por Roger y Jhon respectivamente. And he does it, of course, in his own inimitable, unpredictable, invariably funny, often poignant, and always entertaining way. Il che è abbastanza strano perché io non sono un tipo da interessarmi più di tanto allə artistə: messa così suona male, lo so, ma tendo a essere appagata dalla loro arte, quale che sia, senza un gran bisogno di approfondire chissà quanto vita, morte e miracoli delle loro vite.

I can hear Freddie saying the quotes when I read them, his character and personality shining through .
