Legendary band Queen, back from never being away.

“We are the champions. Don’t stop me now. Is this the real life, is this just fantasy.”

They are all sentences from lyrics of songs by one of the world’s most famous British bands. Queen has therefore worked hard to reach that top. You can still see the result of this today. Take to the streets and ask ten unknowns if they have ever heard of the band Queen and all ten will give you almost the same answer: Of course we know Queen.

The early years of Queen.

The band Queen, formerly called Smile, took its first steps in the music world in 1968 when Brian May founded the band together with Tim Staffel. In doing so, they relied upon Roger Taylor as their drummer. Immediately with the start of the band, Freddie, previously called farrokh but he changed that name himself, was introduced to the band and immediately became a fan of it. Freddie was present at every Smile performance and he always had a great time there.

In 1970, Tim decided to quit, so the boys had to look for a new singer. Freddie, who was already a vocalist for the band Wreckage at that time, was approached by the boys because of this and he decided to switch to Smile. Not much later they also changed the name of the band to Queen. They did this to honor the Queen of England and also because Freddie liked to reflect with her. And so became Queen, the band that we still know to this day.

The life of a world star.

Freddie Mercury is an icon that still lives on in contemporary culture. You can go wherever you want, if the name Freddie Mercury falls you will see many eyes and ears sharpen. Freddie, or Farrokh Bulsara what his real name was, has therefore left a big impression. He therefore had a very big personality.

In his life he was often alone. That was something he didn’t like as much and he showed that too. He often attended the most eccentric parties, or organized them himself. But despite that, he was always there. He was always 100 percent committed to his music, because that was his life. He proved the latter by performing with Queen on Live Aid in 1985, which was organized by Bob Geldof in aid of the famine in Ethiopia. Because the gentlemen of the well-known band were known for that as well. Their commitment to equal opportunities and the rise against injustice.

It then also was a huge shock on that all-changing November 24, 1991 for the world when news came that Freddie had died at his London home. Many call it the end of an era.

Reborn.


Since 2014, 23 years after we said goodbye to this great man, Queen has come up with a big surprise. They have a new world tour planned. They already did this with a hologram of Freddie who sang the songs, but since 2014 they have been doing it with a new singer who wants to do Freddie a lot of honor.

For this tough job, Queen appeals to Adam Lambert who finished second in 2009 in American Idol. Before that he received a lot of praise and the Queen’s men had also seen and heard their songs sing with almost as much style as Freddie would have done. Those versions were so well received that they immediately started negotiating with Adam.

Now they have been touring for several years and that does Adam, Brian May and Roger Taylor a lot of pleasure. They still have a lot of fun and you will notice that when they are on stage and fully indulge in the songs, which over time have grown into the world’s greatest hits of all time.
