9780002558778: The Great Pretender: The Hidden Life of Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury was one of the most electrifying performers in rock. Yet behind the glamorous facade was a private man, who hid his true identity - his sexuality and his background - from his millions of fans. Mercury, born Farok Bulsara, claimed to be of Persian origin; in reality his family moved to England from their home in India when he was 17. The star remained close to his family throughout his life, visiting them weekly, and like all loving parents they kept a record of their son's life in photographs. This collection of photographs give a glimpse of the real life of Freddie Mercury, from his Indian childhood, through his adolescence as an aspiring musician, to the years of super stardom. To accompany this record, those closest to Mercury throughout his life, including his parents and close friend Elton John, give their own very personal views of the man, while Waldemar Januszczak describes the life of Mercury behind the mythology.
