Lesley-Ann Jones brings my old friend almost back to life in this brilliantly observed and detailed account of a fascinating man who lived an all-too-short life. The first book to show us the real Marc.
Praise for FREDDIE MERCURY:
Lesley-Ann Jones asserts that Freddie Mercury's was a "big, extravagant, multifaceted life", and the rock journalist has certainly done a sterling job of documenting it here.
'Heartfelt and fascinating.'
Brimming with insight from family members, friends, managers, musicians and white-knuckled rock and rollercoaster riders who shared the dips and dives of Bolanmania, this book is a cracker of a read.
'Important missing pieces of the complicated short life that was Marc Bolan's. It is a sensational read.'
'This book is a great read. Bolan was one of the most enigmatic and important performers of his age.'
'this is "THE" Marc Bolan biography . . . balanced rather than sensationalist, something the Bolan fan base will appreciate.'
'A timely update coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Queen and the 20 years since their frontman's death'.
Exactly the sort of tribute Mercury himself would have wanted ... full of perceptive and moving insights.
