  • On the Rock Trail

    Queen

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 57 min

    Christmas 1975 was a remarkable time for the band Queen as their single "Bohemian Rhapsody" held the #1 chart position in the UK for nine weeks. Showcasing the talent of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon, the complex operatic section could not be performed live so the first-ever music video was produced. There is a great deal more to Queen and "On the Rock Trail" will take a look behind the scenes. With Freddie's exotic roots in Zanzibar, Brian's genius in astronomy, Roger's tenure at Cornwall's Truro Cathedral and John's achievements in electronics, the men of Queen are full of surprises. When Freddie Mercury died tragically of AIDS in 1991, he was irreplaceable and the reign of Queen was cut prematurely short. This film is celebration of Freddie Mercury and Queen's all-too-brief time as the Rock champions of the world. Presented by former artist manager from London's famous Tin Pan Alley, Liam Dale, "On the Rock Trail" takes you on an informative (and at times humorous) journey behind the scenes of these icons of the music industry. This documentary contains no music from Queen and is not authorized by Queen or any of their affiliate entities.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met in Dartford Station, London where they formed a musical union to last a lifetime. Brian Jones was not so lucky and he died tragically young. Bill Wyman no longer rolls with the Stones but Charlie Watts has remained a steady constant throughout, and not-quite-so-new boy Ronnie Wood has held on for the ride. Follow these legendary musicians and find the spaces and places where they made their mark. There were colossal highs and desperate lows, addresses ranging from country mansions to spells of detention at Her Majesty's Pleasure. Yet The Rolling Stones have survived and still strut their stuff and fill arenas. Presented by former artist manager from London's famous Tin Pan Alley, Liam Dale, "On the Rock Trail" takes you on an informative (and at times humorous) journey behind the scenes of these icons of the music industry.
