Celebrate Freddie Mercury in the next iteration of Steve Wide’s Icons A to Z series. Follow Freddie, born Farrokh Bulsara, as he harnesses hyperdontia to develop an unparalleled vocal range. See Smile, Freddie’s first complete band, graduate to become the global phenomenon Queen. Dissect lyrical oddities like “radio gaga” and “Scaramouch,” and revel in the glorious chevron mustache Freddie grew in 1980…
Ripples of Freddie’s legacy are still felt in music recorded today. He was a juggernaut of technical and conceptual innovation who left the world far before his time. This illustrated book honours the impact Freddie left on pop culture and in all our hearts.
