Queen

Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) and John Deacon (bass guitar). Their earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal, but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works by incorporating further styles, such as arena rock and pop rock.

  • According to the official UK charts company, Queen have sold more albums than The Beatles from 1955-2005 in the UK. Queen's Greatest Hits (5,407,587) has sold a little over half a million more copies than The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (4,811,996), and almost 2 million more than Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon (3,781,993). The results are based strictly on sales figures, not fan voting or expert analysis.
  • They were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2001. In 2003, they also became the first band to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. They were inducted into the UK Music Hall Of Fame in 2004, and have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
  • All 4 members wrote at least one of their hits. Since they all wrote, it gave them very diverse sound.
  • All of the members are very intelligent. In addition to May's degree in astronomy, they had degrees in biology (Taylor), illustration (Mercury), and electronics (Deacon).
  • In 1981, they did the soundtrack for the movie Flash Gordon, which was a huge flop.
