Queen Gets Nice Entry In ''The Book Of Rock From The 1950's To The Present'' By Philip DoddQueen gets a nice inclusion and entry in the new book, ''The Book Of Rock From The 1950's To The Present'' by Philip Dodd, Copyright 2005 by Thunder's Mouth Press available at Barnes and Noble and most book stores.



The Book contains one page, one-two paragraph entries with photos, in alphabetical order of some of the most landmark, influential artists who shaped the landscape of rock music, with brief synopsises of their music and career, and their most influential albums.



Page 316 Live photo circa 1975 of Queen performing, with Freddie and Brian in foreground and Roger and John in background. There is a one paragraph synopsis of Queen's entire music and career right up to the 2005 tour with Paul Rodgers. The book discusses how BoRhap was/is Queen's ''crowning glory'', how Queen will be forever renowned for ''stealing the show at Live Aid'', and that their choice of Paul Rodgers as frontman for the 2005 Tour is both ''inspired and certainly brave.''



Then there is a quote from Freddie Mercury about creating their legendary BoRhap:



''We were adamant that ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' could be a hit in its entirety. We have been forced to make compromises, but cutting up a song will never be one of them.''
