This paperback edition of Queen Unseen has been revised, edited and includes new stories and anecdotes. The original hardback, published in 2011 was critically acclaimed and published in many other territories and languages. Queen Unseen is a personal account of the many exciting years as a young man I spent on tour, in the recording studio, on video shoots and day to day life with one of the world's biggest and best ever rock bands. Insightful, enlightening and mostly a humorous account, it's for anybody who has ever wondered what working for Queen, or most rock bands of the 1970s & 1980s really entailed... It is not a chronological history or definitive biography of the band, but a first-hand story of spending your youth travelling the world and living the rock and roll lifestyle - to the full! Sex and drugs and rock and roll? Yes. I make observations and comments about all the fantastic places we visited and played, and what it was like living, at times, a crazy and surreal existence - with the highs and the lows. The book covers Queen's working life, during my time as the band's longest serving roadie and head of their crew. With new material and surprises for Queen fans, it is also a book to interest anybody who likes stories of the rock and roll lifestyle. I hope you will join me on an Access All Areas journey through a magical era when we were young; feeling we could take on the world and win. Invariably we did.
