Queen is a British rock band that was formed in London 1970. The group is originally consisting of Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar) and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals).

In their music there was genuine power and daring, like in neo-rockabilly swagger of “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and the disco-funk of “Another One Bites the Dust”. Their “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the most ornate productions in the music history, and their highly produced songs like “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You” have become anthems in the world of sports.

Queen released 15 albums of original music between 1973 and 1995. They had eight gold and six platinum records. Their third album, “Sheer Heart Attack” released in 1974, gave their first hit single, “Killer Queen”. The band had its breakthrough with the album “A Night at the Opera” released in 1975, that contained the six-minute masterpiece “Bohemian Rhapsody”. In 1977, it was released the album “News of the World” that contained Queen’s most beloved songs “We are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You”. In 1980, Queen released their highest-charting album called “The Game” which featured two big hits in the rockabilly style “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and the disco style “Another One Bites the Dust”.

Queen’s ornate multi-tracked recordings and songs resulted to worldwide sales of more than 130 million records.

The group ended with the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991, but at the same time their status as one of rock’s most legendary bands continues to grow.
