Queen thrilled fans and topped charts with such hits as “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” among others. The band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985 cemented Queen’s reputation as one of the best live rocks bands, and Mercury (1946-1991) was hailed as the most exciting performer of his generation. Innovative Queen guitarist Brian May remains one of the most acclaimed guitar players in rock history. Visit www.queenonline.com to learn more.
