music news 29/03/2017

Queen guitarist Brian May is releasing a book that will give fans a person look back at the history of Queen.

The book will combine new recollections and archival steroscopic photos.

Queen in 3-D will arrive in stores in the US in May 25 and includes Brian May's own patented OWL photo viewer.

The book promises 'a series of glimpses of life with rock band Queen, seen from the inside for the first time.'

"The pictures and self-penned text tell the story of Brian’s discovery of the world of stereoscopy as a boy, and chronicle Queen from the early 1970s all the way to the present day," it reads.

“The images, from Brian’s personal archives, were taken using the various stereo cameras which Brian carried throughout his life. … they leap into stunning three-dimensional realism, giving a uniquely vivid impression of life with Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, John Deacon and Brian himself, alongside the people who helped to shape Queen’s amazing global adventure.”

The book will be around $60US and can also be ordered online.

“A whole new audience can enjoy the magic of immersive 3-D in their own homes, just as our ancestors did in Victorian times,” said May,

“We’re restoring and reissuing stereoscopic masterpieces from the 1850s, along with new 3-D wonders of the modern world.”
