    Queen

    Post  That Guy on Fri Feb 26, 2010 10:44 am

    Queen are a British rock band that formed in 1970. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, bassist John Deacon, and drummer Roger Taylor. Queen have been described as giving the greatest live performance ever, producing the greatest single in history, and being the best British band of all time. They have released 15 studio albums, five live albums and numerous compilation albums. In 2009, the band's record label EMI reported their worldwide album sales as over 300 million, as did the BBC and other independent sources.

    Queen enjoyed success in the UK during the early 1970s but it was the release of Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night at the Opera (1975) that gained the band international success, both critically and commercially. The latter featured "Bohemian Rhapsody", which stayed at number one in the UK charts for nine weeks. Their success continued through the seventies, eighties, and nineties. In 1987 Mercury was diagnosed HIV positive and in 1991 died of bronchopneumonia, a complication of AIDS. Deacon's retirement followed in 1997. Since then, May and Taylor have infrequently performed together at special events and programmes. Queen were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

    Some of their hits are; Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions, Killer Queen, We Will Rock You, Stadium Rock(A combination of We Will Rock you and We are the champions compiled to make it easier for radio play), and Another One Bites the Dust.

    An amazing band. For those who haven't heard of them, listen to Muse's new album, The Resistance. It has a few traits of Queen in they're songs. For people who want to get a true taste of them, listen to We Are The Champions and We Will Rock You, my favorites by them. The TRUE Queen experience. <33333

    I finally ripped some of my Queen albums last night. Been humming Killer Queen for awhile, and felt like adding it to my library.

    I love Queens Music, one of my favourites. My favourite song would have to be Bohemian Rhapsody.
