Lego Queen

Queen in Lego Rock Band .

Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1971, originally consisting of Freddie Mercury, (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (lead guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals). Queen's initial works were chiefly glam rock,[3] heavy metal and progressive rock orientated; however, with time, the band has incorporated diverse and innovative styles in their music, exploring the likes of vaudeville (in the first albums), electronic music (in their early-1980s releases) and funk (in the late-1970s). The band digressed from using progressive themes in their music in the mid-1970s, with more conventional and radio-friendly works bringing them greater success.[4]

Brian May and Roger Taylor had been playing together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury (then known as Freddie while retaining his family name from birth, Bulsara) was a fan of Smile, and encouraged them to experiment with more elaborate stage and recording techniques. Mercury himself joined the band shortly thereafter, in 1970, after their vocalist Tim Staffel left the band, and changed the name of the band to "Queen" and adopted his familiar stage name. John Deacon was recruited prior to recording their first album (because Staffel also played bass, the position was vacant). Queen enjoyed success in the UK during the early 1970s, but it was the release of Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night at the Opera (1975) that gained the band international success.[5] The latter featured "Bohemian Rhapsody", which stayed at number one in the UK charts for nine weeks.[6] In 1991 Mercury died of bronchopneumonia, a complication of AIDS, and Deacon retired in 1997.[7] Since then May and Taylor have infrequently performed together, including a collaboration with Paul Rodgers under the name Queen + Paul Rodgers,[8] under which they released The Cosmos Rocks in 2006, the first studio recording with Queen's name on it since 1995's posthumous album Made in Heaven.

The band has released a total of 18 number one albums, 18 number one singles and 10 number one DVDs, and have sold over 300 million albums worldwide,[9][10][11][12][13]making them one of the world's best-selling music artists. They have been honoured with seven Ivor Novello awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.[14]
