News > Queen on the cover of BLITZ

Added on 17-Jan-2010

The Queen is the band's cover of Portguese BLITZ' magazine in January.

In one of the challenges of more complicated resolution in living memory, only one

reader - that we realized - you guessed it was Freddie

Mercury's hands, we have come as a clue. Even today one

of the most beloved bands of the Portuguese public, the

Queen vanished with the death of Freddie Mercury. Behind

us we have distinct phases of a career that, between 1977
