The most recent one I've read is 'A Kind Of Magic' by Melina Richmond.

Killer Queen is the best book for sure :-) The Leslie Ann Jones book was very good too and written in a much better style than As It Began although it was a bit shorter.

Deacon Fan - if you want the Box Of Tricks book, just let me know, I have a spare copy.

Definitive biography by Laura Jackson is one of my favo's, but going to buy the killer queen book.

Also the visual biography is nice

Not QUEEN, although a lot of stuff about them:
Peter Freestone "FREDDIE MERCURY: AN INTIMATE MEMOIR". Also "Early Years" is awesome...

Mr Gumby-- the Peter Freestone book was good but didn't it get a bit boring when he was describing Garden Lodge? I found myself sleeping a few times during that part.

Oh well. :X

Yeah, you're both right- it was boring and pretensious at times, but there were some amazing infos in it, some absolutely uncovered before ground...
The most interesting bits for me were the ones about Queen... Priceless!

I liked the freestone book because of the anecdotes it provided, not for the literary quality.

I've only gotten to read two, Peter Freestone's book and an unauthorized bio of the band. I liked Mr Freestone's book better than the band bio. ;p
