Born on the tiny island on Zanzibar off the coast of modern-day Tanzania, young Farrokh dreamt of having a fabulous life. When his parents sent him to boarding school in India, he discovered his true talent for singing, as well as a love of playing rock'n'roll songs on the piano.
Once he left school, Farrokh, who now went by 'Freddie', knew he wanted to be a musician. He moved to London, where eventually he found a band who were looking for a singer, and from there the iconic band Queen was born. Through playing music with his friends and touring the world, Freddie became a glam rock superstar! Even when he was diagnosed with AIDS, the disease which would eventually take his life, he refused to stop singing, instead recording a beautiful goodbye song, showing the world he was determined to live his life to the fullest no matter what.
This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the musician's life.
