Summary

Freddie Mercury: His Life In His Own Words takes us on the journey of Queen - three academics and a frustrated art student, tired of having no money, taking on the music industry on their own terms.Though Freddie talked rarely to others about himself, the interviews published - and some unpublished until now, compiled in this book - together offer an intriguing insight into the man who outwardly exuded confidence and arrogance, but behind that public perception spent periods alone and searching for happiness.
