Peter Hince describes his book:
‘Queen Unseen’ is a unique account of the many exciting years as a young man I spent on tour, in the recording studio, on video shoots and day to day life at home with one of the world’s biggest and best ever rock bands.
It is an insightful, enlightening and mostly humorous account for anybody who has ever wondered what working for Queen, or indeed most rock bands of that era really entailed….. the highs and the lows. It is not a chronological history or definitive biography of the band, but a personal story of what it was like to spend your youth travelling the world and living the rock and roll lifestyle – to the full!
Mine is a truly unique book on Queen – no journalist or author could have written it – they were not there. I was, and I remember it all like it was yesterday…..
Just Wonderful memories.
Despite his refusal to dish the dirt, Peter’s book is full of love and honesty that reveals an essence about the unarguably enigmatic Freddie Mercury – who Hince clearly deeply admired and cared about as a personal friend as well as a famous rock star!
