In The Studio: News Of The World 35th Anniversary

With the release of November 1977′s News of the World , Queen had succeeded as four real “mates” on an international scale, which  would continue only to increase for the next decade . With four writers, the band had a surplus of strong songs, while Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury possessed such an operatic voice that it’s easy to forget that both Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor also sang lead on select songs.

What really impressed me then and now is how appreciative Brian May is of the fans, the countless deejays, and journalists for supporting Queen’s efforts over the years. Brian would later suffer a broken marriage, separation of his kids, and the passing of both parents, but nothing short of the untimely death of Freddie Mercury in 1991 could silence the original band. And even that wasn’t permanent. - Redbeard
