Queen is known as one of the best bands in history for their songs like Bohemian Rhapsody, Love of my Life, Killer Queen and many more. Now, Queen is a pretty old band and the people living at the time didn’t have much technology. Due to this, everything was based on being good at singing and being good at your instruments. Nowadays, people have a lot of technology that makes their songs look and sound better. Freddie Mercury, who was one of the members of the band is considered the most popular, mainly because he is the main singer of the songs. Queen is still very popular and to prove it, in 2018, a movie called “Bohemian Rhapsody” which was all about Freddie Mercury was released. There have been many opinions on it but most of them are positive and some are even saying that Queen is the greatest band.

Freddie Mercury isn’t the only member of the band, for there are three more. Their names are Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor. Even though Mercury is the most popular of the members, he wasn’t the one that started the band. May and Tayle were the first two of a band named, “Smile”. Mercury then later joined because he was a fan of the two. Deacon was then later recruited. The name, “Smile” didn’t really appeal to Mercury so he suggested that they should change the name to the name we all know today, “Queen” . They later made many amazing songs that many people love.

The band did have many problems that affected them. The worst one was when Freddie got aids and then died in his 40’s, which is a very young age to die at. Fortunately, the other three members are still alive and May and Tyler are still trying to keep Queen relevant. Deacon doesn’t do any of this but he approves of the things that May and Tyler are trying to do. Freddie was also later found to be homosexual and even had many boyfriends when performing for the band.
