Monday 5 September would have been the 65th birthday of the late, great Freddie Mercury. Sadly, the front-man of Queen died of an Aids-related illness 20 years ago. However, the band remain one of the most influential and popular rock groups in history, and this year – which also marks the 40th anniversary of their creation – they’re as busy as ever. Since January they have been re-issuing their albums, staging exhibitions (Stormtroopers in Stilettos, which gained a five-star review here on So So Gay), advising film-makers on a new biopic about Mercury, and teaming up with the likes of Lady Gaga to show that they still know how to rock.
To celebrate Queen’s continuing presence on the global stage, we’ve teamed up with the band’s PR team to offer one lucky winner a pack up of Queen’s five final albums (reviewed earlier on So So Gay), along with Deep Cuts volumes one to three. Queen’s final five albums, The Works, A Kind of Magic, The Miracle, Innuendo and Made in Heaven track the band through the height of their power and influence in the Eighties, through to the post-Freddie era. Deep Cuts are a series of albums featuring lesser-known Queen tracks from the band’s extensive discography. To be in with a chance of winning the whole package, worth over £85, simply complete the form below by 12.00pm on Sunday 11 September. We’ll pick a winner at random after then.
