Formed in 1970, Queen is one of the world’s best-known rock bands of all time. With their record-smashing hits that continue to recruit fans even today, Queen has a unique style that resonates with people from all walks of life. Today, Queen fans range from young teens to senior citizens, all of them bound by the genius musical abilities that this band was able to put forth.
Since lead singer and pianist Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991, and the retirement of bassist John Deacon in 1997, the remaining members, Brian May and Roger Taylor have renamed the band and continued to tour under the band name Queen+ with other musical artists. Today, the permanent members are Adam Lambert and Paul Rogers.
