What are the best biographies of Queen and/or Freddie?

I know Peter Freestone wrote one, as did Jim Hutton, and a handful of authors whose names aren't important to me. What have you guys read that you really enjoyed?

Thanks, and cheers!

i think the Peter Freestone bk on Freddie was really dull..haven't read the Mercury & Me one but i will soon.
i think Queen: The Early Years was great! Read lots of new intersting stuff bout them!!!
Freddie Mercury: King of Queen (think that's the title) was my first Queen book i read and it's really good!!


Where did you order King of Queen?
I'm searched in Amazon and they don't have it:(
