Queen - The unseen photo collection by Mark Hayward
Posted June 16 2022,
PHOTO EXHIBITION OF QUEEN IN THE HERMAN BROOD MUSEUM IN ZWOLLE
More than 60 unseen photos of the band Queen!!
The connection between me (Ivo de Lange) and Mark Hayward has existed for years.
Hayward lives and works in London, his profession is sales and guiding several exhibitions
Rock groups from England from the 60s to the 90s. He has a breathtaking collection
that I can draw from. Most collections have never been exhibited anywhere, including this one.
QUEEN is of course a rewarding subject and Mark Hayward's photos are just as important
due. A beautiful collection compiled by both of us will be on display in the Herman Brood Museum from June 25 to the end of September 2022.
Why? Isn't there enough bread? Of course yes, but Rock 'n Roll related exhibitions are a great added value, not only for the museum but certainly for the Netherlands.
Is an English rock group. The band was founded in 1970 in London by guitarist Brian May, singer
Freddie Mercury and drummer Roger Taylor, supplemented by bassist John Deacon in 1971. With
dozens of hits in the seventies, eighties and nineties, Queen is one of the most successful rock bands
in history. The band is known for its musical versatility, layered arrangements, harmonies (as can be clearly heard in Somebody to Love) and powerful live performances. The performance during Live Aid in 1985 was voted the best live performance of all time 20 years later.
Queen's big breakthrough started in 1974 with the singles Killer Queen and Now I'm Here from the album Sheer Heart Attack and a year later with the album A Night at the Opera with the number 1 hit Bohemian Rhapsody. Queen has released a total of fifteen studio albums, seven live albums, two EPs, ten DVDs, multiple compilation albums and dozens of 7”, 12” and CD singles. Also have all
band members undertook solo projects. It is estimated that the band has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide, making them one of the most successful bands in the world.
After Mercury's death in 1991, John Deacon withdrew from public life, except for a few appearances. The last time John Deacon performed with Brian May and Roger Taylor was in 1997 for the “Queen + Béjart Ballet for Life” concert. Elton John served as guest singer for this one-off performance. May and Taylor continued to work together. From 2005 to 2008 they did
this with the British singer Paul Rodgers. There is a new one under the name Queen + Paul Rodgers
studio album and two world tours. Since 2011, Queen has been touring with American Idol contestant, singer Adam Lambert. May and Taylor regularly release archive material from Queen. For example, a new compilation album was released in 2014: Queen
Forever. This album contains two previously unreleased songs and a remake of Freddies
first solo single, “Love Kills”. One of the new tracks is a duet between Queen singer Freddie
Mercury and the American singer Michael Jackson, who died in 2009. Furthermore, the album exists
mainly from remastered versions of previously released songs.
