40 years have passed since this band saw the light under the visionary guidance of Freddie Mercury – who was then still known by his birth name of Farrokh Bulsara - and the talent of Brian May.
Time goes by, and obviously nothing is the same in a band that still meets sporadically. And yet its masses of unconditional fans are delighted by these reunions, and Brian May and Roger Taylor manage to summon and rekindle the spirit of Queen every time they go on stage. Freddie Mercury’s magic and retired John Deacon’s shadow seem to hover in the air along with the respectful voices of Kris Allen and Paul Rodgers, and fans acknowledge the passing of time while welcoming these invocations.
But, even if it is true that many years separate us from the creature that Smile and Freddie’s imagination generated, Queen's spirit still remains in many objects that are linked to their history and the trace left by their music.
This temporary exhibition opens our first season. With it, the Museum of Rock pays tribute, not only to the colossal work of one of the most influential rock bands in history, but also to the band’s personality. It would not be fair to ignore the band’s character, fruit of the genius of its members and always reflected in their songs, the unforgettable power of their music and their spectacular performances.
On the 40th anniversary of the creation of Queen, the Museum of Rock pays tribute to this band that marked an era and today still continues to arouse passions. The exhibition can be enjoyed until the 30th June in the temporary exhibition hall of the museum
