The new Funko Pop! Deluxe Album: Queen – Queen Greatest Hits Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures – Walmart Exclusive includes all four members of the band – Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, Brian May, and John Deacon.
We will never stop talking about Queen because it has been and will be one of the greatest groups in music history. And of course, every rock band has its crown, and in the case of Queen, this is “Greatest Hits.”
I am doing a little history review. “Greatest Hits” was released in 1981 and is notable for having been the first and only album to have sold more than six million copies in Great Britain, with global sales exceeding 25 million.
Furthermore, the album spent more than 900 weeks on the album charts in the UK and was certified 22 times platinum. Almost nothing!
Delving deeper into the album, “Greatest Hits” includes some of the world’s most iconic rock songs, including the stadium-sized symphonic song “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the most played song of the 20th century worldwide and the most played classic rock song of all time.
Other gems featured on this compilation include “We Are The Champions,” “We Will Rock You,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” and “Somebody To Love.”
The British band Queen has its lyrics written in gold in the history of contemporary music. Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, Brian May, and John Deacon formed in 1972 one of the most promising bands of the time, owners of true rock anthems still sung in chorus today.
After the death of their lead singer in 1991, the group’s golden age ended, but its members have continued to carry the legacy of their songs around the world.
The history of Queen began in 1970, but the germ of the British band took place two years earlier. Brian May and Roger Taylor founded the band Smile in 1968, with Tim Staffell as a vocalist.
When the latter decided to leave the group to join another one, the other members immediately thought of Freddie, whom they knew from school.
At that time, the band had Freddie Mercury, Brian May, and Roger Taylor when it was renamed Queen due to a suggestion of the lead singer himself. At first, they played covers of other bands and artists, but they also composed their songs. Then, in 1970 they performed live for the first time in the English city of Truro.
They tried out several different bass players in those first concerts, but after meeting John Deacon in a bar, they decided to bring him into the band for good. As a result, the four members of Queen performed together in 1972.
At that time, Freddie Mercury had already designed the group’s famous logo, inspired by the zodiac signs of its members, with two lions for Deacon and Taylor, who are Leo, a crab for May, who is Cancer, and two fairies for Mercury, who was a Virgo.
