Could do a lot worse than "As It Began" by Jacky Gunn & Jim Jenkins. A very good read. You can pick up a used copy from Amazon for as little as £4.00.

Yeah, As It Began is good. I remember when it came out, I'd pre ordered it and got it on the day of release, it didnt let me down. Or theres Jim Huttons book and Phoebes book.

You need to read Freddie Mercury by Peter Freestone. It is a very descriptive book from him, who was Freddie's personal assistant, on the early days of his life up until Freddie's death. I really, really, reconmend it!
