QUEEN AS A GROUP
Queen is an English rock band of four members.
The band was formed in London in 1970.
There was much deliberation as to what the band's name would be.
Queen went through several bass players before John Deacon arrived on the scene in January of 1971.
Queen's self-titled debut album was released in 1973 and received little attention from the general public.
As was in their nature, the band went on after the mediocre success of their first two albums.
Queen played in America for the first time.
The band began developing a huge following in Japan in 1975.
Queen's popularity grew steadily through the latter half of the 70s.
And now we want to introduce them to you
This is the first album with a hard rock style and full of songs which will be remembered for decades.
Great king rat
This is a song written by Freddie which shows their first musical style progressive rock which is similar to some great musicians like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin or Jimi Hendrix, but Queen can do something new and different from the other bands.
This is their last album which is going at the top of the charts in Great Britain and it’s starting to be listened all over the world.
It is a transition from hard rock to melodic songs with amazing lyrics.
Now I’m here
This is a song by Brian May from their last album. Here you can see a change between this album and the other two, it is more commercial than the others but with their own rock style.
Well, this is the fourth Queen´s album which probably will be the most famous. Was recorded in England. "A night at the opera" is an exceptionally rich and diverse ensemble. Each theme is powerful and from the beginning to the end is wonderfully recorded. You don't believe me? Let´s see!
The fascinating, revolutionary and epic masterpiece.
There is a little film with the song. The song lasts 6 minutes. Music scholar Sheila suggests that "the title draws strongly on contemporary rock ideology, the individualism of the bohemian artists world, with rhapsody affirming the romantic ideals of art rock"
«You're My Best Friend»
The song starts with John's electric piano. Inspired by Veronica, John's wife. Best Friend shows a softer side of the group, whose singles to date have been more rockers.
When we talk about style, we talk about freddie mercury.
He is the greatest showman in the history of rock music, and his stage presence, flash, and fire will never be duplicated.
He performs in tight bodysuits. He wears different kinds of fabrics and patterns.
Freddie Mercury is the precursor to all artists who wore tailored jackets. He introduced this style of jackets in order to give a fresh and fun image to his show.
Freddie Mercury performs in even more extravagant gestures and poses while wearing leather. He is a great example on why wearing this type of fabric makes you badass
The singer also believes that “less is more” when he is dressed in simple tank tops, track pants, and sneakers.
Freddie Mercury can also wear looser articles of clothing. Whether it is exaggerated garment details or pattern cuts.
