The Story of Queen: Mercury Rising (full doc)
This is the story of one of the world's greatest rock bands. They are known for their record-breaking, sell-out tours, chart-topping records, and worldwide success.

Twenty years after the death of gay frontman Freddie Mercury, the band remains immensely popular. Their album sales have topped 300 million, and their West End stage show plays in almost 20 cities across the planet.
Formed in 1971, Queen embarked on its journey to fame in the UK with their first two albums Queen (1973) and Queen II (1974). But it wasn't until the release of Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night at the Opera (featuring "Bohemian Rhapsody") in 1975 that they achieved worldwide success.
Somebody made a Hollywood movie with Mercury as much less gay

By the late 1970s Queen had gone on to release "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," two of the greatest rock anthems ever to be released. These hits cemented their status. Here is the story of an iconic rock band from the very beginning to the sad demise of Mercury in 1991 told through archival footage and some of their greatest hits and interviews with guitarist Brian May and the likes of Paul Gambaccini.
