The English band, Queen, hit the rock
'n' roll scene back in the early '70s when frontman, Freddie Mercury, joined with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor.
The three were later joined by bassist John Deacon. At the start of their career they shied away from the mainstage club circuit,
rehearsing while they were still in college. They began touring together in 1973 after their eponymous debut album was released.
Queen's sound became loved by heavy metal fans everywhere as Freddie Mercury's intricate vocals harmonized with the band's
daring sound. Their first U.S. Top 20 hit, "Killer Queen," was featured on the album Sheer Heart Attack. This LP also because
its first U.S. gold. Ultimately Queen's fan base grew rapidly in 1975 with the release of the album A Night at the Opera.
It contained top hits such as the ever timeless "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "You're My Best Friend."
Overall, Queen had
eight gold and six platinum records. The band's U.S. Top 40 include: "Killer Queen," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "You're My Best
Friend," "Somebody to Love," "We Are the Champions," "We Will Rock You," "Fat Bottomed Girls" "Bicycle Race," "Crazy Little
Thing Called Love," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Under Pressure" "Body Language" and "Radio Ga-Ga."
During the early
'80s, Queen began to branch out. In 1980, The Game was released, which featured "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," a rocker
piece and "Another One Bites the Dust," that had more of a disco vibe. The latter rocketed to No. 1 on the pop and R&B
charts. The Game ultimately became Queen's first American No. 1 album.
But all good things must come to an end, and
for Queen the end of Freddie Mercury's life in 1991 shook the band's core as the entrancing falsetto of Mercury would never
grace the stage again. The band released an album in 1995, featuring vocals from Mercury recorded prior to his death.
2005, the band toured with Paul Rodgers, the lead singer of Bad Company. Rodgers split from the band in 2009, and in 2011,
American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert, joined Queen as the new vocalist. Today, Queen and Adam Lambert continue to crisscross
the country to keep the spirit of Queen alive.
