News > Eil.com Has Discovered Yet Another Piece of Musical History

Added on 17-Mar-2007

Meopham, United Kingdom, March 16, 2007 --(PR.COM)-- The item is Freddie Mercury’s very own Hofner acoustic guitar. Famous for his generosity, Freddie autographed and presented it as a gift to his close friend Kenny Everett, who later donated it as a competition prize.



Eil.com’s Queen expert Stephen Borkowski commented; “Queen has always been a highly collectable band and during our 20 years we have been fortunate enough to have had some of the finest pieces of Queen memorabilia but this tops everything.



“Freddie and Kenny were very close friends, a friendship that stretched all the way back to 1975 and the release of the Queen classic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.



“Kenny was given an advance copy of the single from Freddie, with the proviso that it was not to be played on the air.
