This is a book that will satisfy the curiosity of anyone who has ever wanted to know what it was really like to work with a famous rock band.’ Mojo
Imagine being alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the globe and being there as they perform at some of the best and biggest music venues in the world. Peter Hince didn’t have to imagine: for more than a decade, he lived a life that other people can only dream of as he worked with Queen as head of their road crew.
In this intimate and affectionate book, Peter recalls the highlights of his years with the band. He was with Freddie when he composed ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’; he was responsible for making sure that Freddie’s stage performances went without a hitch - and was often there to witness his famed tantrums! He was also party to the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll which are invariably part of life on the road with a rock band.
Many books have been written about Queen and Freddie Mercury but this is the first real insider’s story. Packed with the author’s own exclusive photographs, this warm and witty book will entertain and inform. It is a must-read for any music fan.
‘Extremely accurate, well-written and entertaining. I know - I was there. Read it.’ Mack, Queen record producer
