Queen were indicted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and given their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. The Queen musical We Will Rock You has been shown in Australia, Spain, the USA, Russia, South Africa, Germany and Japan, and has been seen by more than 5,000,000 people. The Treasures of Queen is an official publication, and has been approved at every stage by the band. It shows and tells the story of a fantastically talented and popular group of musicians who have retained an enormous fanbase throughout their entire history. The book showcases the band, its members, recordings and concerts through images and the written word, as well as through the unique pieces of memorabilia that are from the private collections of Queen's members.
Harry Doherty has worked as a music journalist since the early 1970s, when he joined Melody Maker as a staff writer. In the course of his time with Melody Maker, he covered a range of top bands, and wrote major features on many artists including Queen, with whom he developed a close relationship. Subsequently, Doherty went on to be founding editor of Metal Hammer in the UK and then became editor-in-chief on the world's first hard rock video-magazine, Hard 'n' Heavy. He now writes occasional major features for Classic Rock magazine.
