The Life, Death and Legacy of Freddie Mercury
Mark Langthorne & Matt Richard
For the first time, the final years of one of the world’s most captivating rock showman are laid bare. With interviews from Freddie Mercury’s closest friends in the last years of his life, along with lots of never before seen personal photographs.
Here are previously unknown facts about the singer and his life, moving detail on his lifelong search for love and personal fulfillment, and of course his tragic contraction of a then killer disease in the mid-1980s. Woven throughout Freddie’s life is the shocking story of how the HIV virus came to hold the world in its grip, was cruelly labelled ‘The Gay Plague’ and infected thousands of men, women and children – Freddie Mercury himself being one of the most famous.
The death of this vibrant and spectacularly talented rock star shook the world of medicine as well as the world of music. Somebody to Love finally puts the record straight and pays detailed tribute to the man himself.
