Touring Without Freddie Mercury

+ Paul Rodgers and later work

Queen has reunited on several occasions after singer Freddie Mercury's death. The band continued on with Bad Company's Paul Rodgers in the mid to late 2000's for about five years. During this time, John Deacon did not participate in the reunited lineup.

After this touring lineup, members Roger Taylor and Brian May released a statement that they had left EMI records after 40 years with the label. It was also discussed that their time would be spent working on new studio material with "computer work." Whether this means that they are using leftover vocals from Freddie Mercury or not remains to be seen.

Bohemian Rhapsody Video

The song Bohemian Rhapsody experienced a resurgence in 1992 when the movie Wayne's World featured the song in the movie. It reached #1 in the UK, and began a comeback of Queen album sales in the U.S., along with the success of the Wayne's World Soundtrack.

The Greatest Hits album by Queen is one of the best selling albums of all time. With over 25 million album sales worldwide, it has sold more than many other well known bands sell in their entire career. This compilation was released in 1981. The follow up Greatest Hits compilation was released in 1991, with the band's hits from the 1981-1991 era included.

The 3rd Greatest Hits compilation contained many of their hits which were largely unpopular in the US, but still massive in the UK. If you like the band, this 3rd volume is also worth listening to, especially since it will be fresh to you if you're only used to their American radio hits.

Live Aid and Rock Montreal

The performances of a lifetime -- both in in the 80's

If Queen had a climax in their career, the Live Aid performance and Rock Montreal would be their penultimate performances. Mercury stole the show at 1985's Live Aid, which also featured other acts like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, U2, Madonna, Paul McCartney, The Cars, and Tom Petty. No other act outshined Queen that day, though.

Transformation of Sound and Look

Queen shifts gears as the 80s begin

When the 80's began, the band, especially Mercury, took on a new look and sound. Starting with "Another One Bites the Dust," they incorporated new sounds, complete with a makeover for singer Mercury. This led to a little disillusionment with American audiences over the years, but things came back full swing in the 90's when Wayne's World was released. Unfortunately, Mercury's passing would happen just around the time that this resurgence took place.

Somebody to Love - One of Queen's greatest songs

No, it's not a cover of that Grace Slick song, this is the original song by Queen that is actually one of their most listened to songs on YouTube. With hits in the tens of millions, this song really received a resurgence in airplay and popularity thanks to YouTube.
