Overview

An intimate and affectionate insider's story of his years spent alongside Queen, with exclusive personal photos

For more than a decade, Peter Hince worked alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the world and heading up their road crew as they performed at some of the best and biggest music venues in the world. Here he recalls the highlights of those years with the band. He was with Freddie Mercury when he composed "Crazy Little Thing Called Love;" he was responsible for making sure that Freddie's stage performances went without a hitch; and he was often there to witness Freddie's famed tantrums. He was also party to the sex, drugs, and rock and roll which are invariably part of life on the road with a rock band. Many books have been written about Queen and Freddie Mercury, but this is the first real insider's story. Packed with the author's own exclusive photos, including never-before-seen shots of Freddie, his female lover Mary, and other band members, this warm and witty book will entertain and inform as a must-read for any music fan.

    A fantastic insider's tale of touring with the great rock band Queen!

    Been waiting for Mr. Hince to write this for a few years now and he does not disappoint here! A great book about what it is like to be on tour with the great band Queen from the early days to their final shows. Loved hearing about Mr. Hince's days touring the USA and his interactions with the late, great Freddie Mercury. This is a must-read for not only any Queen fan but any fan who wants to know about what goes on behind the scenes touring with a major rock and roll band!
