Freddie Mercury A Life In His Own Words is the nearest thing to Freddie’s autobiography as it is possible to achieve A moving witty often irreverent collection of uotes or interview transcript from the man himself covering an extraordinary life meticulously edited together by ueen’s long time archivists with a Foreword by Freddie's mum An essential read not just for fans of ueen and their iconic frontman but anyone intrigued to knowabout one of music’s most endearing and enduring performersFreddie rarely talked about himself to others and so the relatively few interviews he did agree tocarefully compiled for this book and some of them unpublished until nowprovide an intriguing insight into a man who outwardly exuded confidence and arrogance but behind the public perception spent periods alone and searching for happiness The truth was that Freddie was painfully shy and uncomfortable in the company of anyone who might intrude upon his famous ‘royal family’ of close friends and invited guests The book covers Freddie’s origins and history many and various subjects in between and of course covers the fascinating journey of ueen all from his uniue perspective Spurred on by their almost uncontrollable ambitious and forthright front man ueen succeeded in becoming one of the biggest bands on the planet The story describes how on many occasions the group almost broke up but was always kept together by their shared love of breaching musical boundaries Freddie’s own personal story is one of pursuing a dream dealing with wealth and fame looking back and having no regrets reflecting on getting old his legacy and death A man determined to succeed to the point of willing to be “frivolous and preposterous” to win over an audience“I love the feeling of it It’s greater than sex” But as the pages turn we see a Freddie Mercury gradually changing the priorities in his life to onesedate and necessarily changed by the cloud of the HIVAIDS virus beginning to shadow the gay communityFor a man who seldom spoke in A Life In His Own Words Freddie says it all “There are times when I wake up and I think “My God I wish I wasn’t Freddie Mercury today” In 20 chapters 194 pages and nearly 73000 wordsand 45 years in the makingFreddie covers it all and then some And he does it of course in his own inimitable unpredictable invariably funny often poignant and always entertaining way “I love the fact that I make people happy in any form Even if it’s just half an hour of their lives if I can make them feel lucky or make them feel good or bring a smile to a sour face that to me

    Freddie Mercury was a private man who when he was interviewed gave a good as he got this is many interviews given over the years now all put into print and making a entertaining and nice insight into the man who was one of the greatest singers of all time never boring and when you get to read this wonderful book you will understand Fabulous

    Enjoyed reading this book although have been a ueen fan since 1974 so knew most of what the book contained however there was some new material that I read Really enjoyed reading this book only wish Freddie had remained with Mary Austin but he lived his life to the full and Mary was always 'his best friend' Can't be doing with Adam Lambert with the two old men May and Taylor still thrashing it out without Freddie that betrayal and only comes from friends and family John Deacon has morals Great read high recommend this seller

    This book is absolutely brilliant it's as if your sat asking the uestion to Freddie and the seeing him speak I read the first book years ago but this new updated version is even better it's a must for fans no matter how long you have known ueen

    This is the closest any ueen fan will ever get to a Freddie Mercury autobiography it’s been meticulously researched buy the Greg Brooks and Simon Lupton Thank you gentlemen for giving us an insight to Freddie

    This book came up on Kindle as a highly recommended download to grab So I did having been a ueen band fan since they first came onto the scene very much in my early years and now at 72 years i must admit that I did know that this book existedSo for me that has most of the copies of all the ueen vinyls tapes CD's DVD's etc etc including the now Paul Rogers revival ueen Band including from the other various tribute bands this was a really great book to get my hands onSo for me this was the next chapter in our Freddie potential closure BUT for us he will live on in the music of ueen powered by those that were intimate with him as a band Long live Freddie you and your band are still the best

    I am at a loss for words This book has no journey It is lots of different interviews that repeat have no connection and we have no idea of the uestions being asked Several times I have read how they argued a lot sorted it out were meticulous etc But the book doesn’t really tell me anything Cannot read any So disappointed The 5 star reviews baffle me


  7. says:

    Updated and expanded version of the 2006 book This book is the closest thing to an autobiography that you are going to get Freddie rarely gave in depth interviews and this book is made up from uotes throughout his career Full of funnyheartbreaking and revealing comments Highly recommended

    He died prematurely and has left a huge gap in the entertainment world However the book seemed to mostly contain his answers to the same or similar uestions over the years And his answers were much the same or similar I was rather disappointed
