News > Brazilian launches Queen Biography

Added on 17-Aug-2010

On August 22, next Sunday, will be launch the book "Queen Magic Works," by Marcelo Facundo Severo, who traces the biography of the band in a different way: through his music production.

In the book, published by Mandacaru, the author goes through each track of each Queen album - even the "Made in Heaven" - telling how each song came about, what was the inspiration, who played what and, show what models of instruments were used. For all this, we can say that "Queen Magic Works" is a real bible for fans of the British band.

"I sent the book to Brian May, who sent me an email saying he liked the work, and that the level of research I have done very much resembles what he did in his PHD thesis," said Severo.

The book launch event will be on August 22 in Little Darling Bar - located at Av Irai, 229, Moema, in São Paulo - from 18h. In addition to an autograph session with the author, will be the presentation of the cover band Rockin Magic, whose guitarist is Marcelo Severo.

The ticket for the event costs R$15 and can be purchased at the time. For reservations and more information, visit the Little Darling web page ( or call (11) 5542-9912 or (11) 5096-4035.

The next Thursday, August 19, starting midnight, the Press blog Rocker ( will inaugurate its podcast, which will be dedicated to Queen and will involve the book's author, speaking more about his work, and Queen music, of course.
