Barcelona by Freddie Mercury( Recording )

70 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anlässlich des 66. Geburtstags des 1991 verstorbenen Sängers Freddie Mercury wurde u.a. das gemeinsam mit der spanischen Sopranistin Montserrat Caballé aufgenommene Album 'Barcelona' wieder veröffentlicht, das seit 1999 nicht mehr lieferbar war. Zur Zeit der Aufnahme, 1988, war die Kooperation eines Rockstars mit einer Operndiva noch etwas sehr Aussergewöhnliches. Einmal mehr zeigte Mercury, dass er mehr Facetten und Talente hatte als nur den exaltierten Showman auf der Rockbühne. Das Titelstück war der offizielle Song zu den Olympischen Spielen 1992 in der katalanischen Metropole und hätte von beiden bei der Eröffnung aufgeführt werden sollen. Dazu kam es aber nicht, Freddie Mercury starb wenige Monate davor. 'Barcelona' war auch eine Art Initialzündung für grenzüberschreitende Zusammenarbeit von E-Musik und Popularmusik

"This Hammersmith Christmas concert was the culmination of the 26-date 'Queen invite you to A Night At The Opera UK tour of 1975,' and was the last show of a very eventful and exciting year for Queen. Queen performed 'Bohemian Rhapsody' for the first time during this tour. Spirits were high within the band for this show; 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was enjoying its fourth week at No. 1 and 'A Night At The Opera' was climbing the album charts on its way to No. 1, which it achieved three days after this concert. The show was simulcast live on both BBC Radio 1 and 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' television show on BBC 2; the programme's host Bob Harris introduced the band on stage." --

Mercury : an intimate biography of Freddie Mercury by Lesley-Ann Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rock biography is a revealing, intimate look at the man who would be Queen. The lead vocalist for the iconic rock band Queen, Freddie Mercury's unmatched skills as a songwriter and his flamboyant showmanship made him a superstar and Queen a household name. But despite his worldwide fame, few people ever really glimpsed the man behind the glittering facade. Now, more than twenty years after his death, those closest to Mercury are finally opening up about this pivotal figure in rock 'n roll. Based on more than a hundred interviews with key figures in his life, the author, a rock journalist offers the definitive account of one man's legendary life in the spotlight and behind the scenes. She gained unprecedented access to Mercury's tribe, and she details Queen's slow but steady rise to fame and Mercury's descent into dangerous, pleasure-seeking excesses. This was, after all, a man who once declared, "Darling, I'm doing everything with everyone." In her journey to understand Mercury, she traveled to London, Zanzibar, and India, talking with everyone from Mercury's closest friends to the sound engineer at Band Aid (who was responsible for making Queen even louder than the other bands) to second cousins halfway around the world. In the process, an intimate and complicated portrait emerges. It offers an unvarnished look at the extreme highs and lows of life in the fast lane. At the heart of this story is a man and the music he loved
