Since their very first single in 1973, Brian May has collected Queen memorabilia from the infamous blue vinyl Bohemian Rhapsody disc and news of the World promotional robot, to posters, CDs, sticks of Queen rock, mouse mats, postage stamps, toy cars, bubble gum cards, t-shirts and Brian's original backstage passes. The collection has been scrupulously cared for over the years and few have seen it, until now. In addition to the main collection, Brian May and archivist Greg Brooks have sought out the various rarities which slipped through the net first time around. This is at last, the book of the definitive Queen collection; every rare item ever released, many that were not, and a unique selection of items only ever given to the four band members. Brian contributes comments and recollections and singles out his favourite items for special scrutiny. He explains, where, how and why the most peculiar items came to be, or why certain things were rejected! Nearly 2,000 of the most significant Queen gems ever seen; the good; the bad; the unusual and the bizarre.
Greg Brooks is a recognised authority on the band. He has written articles for collector's magazines and contributed to TV and radio documentaries. He wrote Queen Live: A Concert Documentary and in 1002 put together the music for the 12 CD Freddie Mercury Solo boxed set. Most recently he worked on Queen's Greatest Video Hits and Live at Wembley Stadium DVD's. For the past two years, Greg has been logging Brian May's personal collection: cataloging each item.
