Queen: one of the biggest bands the world has ever seen. Sell-out tours, chart-topping records and stunning success for four decades. Hundred of millions of CDs, videos and DVD's sold all over the world. They have broken records constantly: biggest ever paying crowd, longest number of weeks in the charts, headliners at the biggest festival ever and more. They have received accolades too numerous to list in full, but suffice to say 'Best Band', 'Best Album' 'Best Single', 'Best Video' and 'Best Live Act' feature again and again. They were indicted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and given their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. The Queen musical "We Will Rock You" has been shown in Australia, Spain, the USA, Russia, South Africa, Germany and Japan and has been seen by more than 5,000,000 people. "40 Years of Queen" is an official publication, and has been approved at every stage by the band. It shows and tells the story of a fantastically talented and popular group of musicians who have retained an enormous fanbase throughout their entire history. The book showcases the band, its members, recordings and concerts through images and the written word, as well as through the unique pieces of memorabilia that are from the private collections of Queen's members. "40 Years of Queen" gives fans unprecedented access to all areas, and the chance to get their hands on some amazing memorabilia for the first time ever: backstage passes, setlists, handwritten lyrics, unpublished album art, ultra-rare posters, original tour itineraries, postcards, limited-edition records, invites to the now-legendary tour parties, and more! It includes: "Rainbow Poster" March 1974; QI Press Kit (four pieces in envelope); "Keep Yourself Alive" sheet music; QI playing card (4); "Seven Seas of Rhye" sheet music; Hand-written fan club letters (4) on cut-out headed notepaper; "Bohemian Rhapsody" blue vinyl with cover; "Day at the Races" race card booklet; "Portraits" poster 1976; Queen Fan Club A5 biog and membership card; "Torso thing" (3D cut-out Freddie 'doll'); "News of the World" special edition cover; and, Japan April 1979 Jazz tour ticket.

40 Years of Queen is amazing! Its 100% Authorised (with forwards by Brian May and Roger Taylor) and has some fantastic pictures and Fascimile Memorabilia. Its the perfect item for any Queen fan. What a great product to show how great Queen were and still are!!

 5 star book

| | See all Griffin87's reviews (2)

a 5 star book that is brillantly put together for a legendary band, with all the stuff with it too makes it extra special, a 4 star is under par of what the other person put, i don't know what more you could want from it.

 Not as good as hoped

I would say this book is good but should have been much better. For Queen's 40th Anniversary it should have been a better book.

The reproductions of concert tickets, posters, fan club letter and vip tour passes are very nice to have and I give top marks for those BUT the pictures are very ordinary. Not really any rare ones I haven't seen before.

I was hoping for some rare backstage ones especially on Innuendo (as it was Freddie's last) but there wasn't. They put in the same picture as in the original Innuendo album. The one with the band covered in a dark blue light.

All in all I hoped for better. Queen should look at The Beatles Anthology book released in 2000 to see how it could have been.
