  • 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.

The steps were carefully researched from period manuscripts and are recreations of historical dances. Close up and slow motion views make learning the moves simple and fun. Dance historian and choreographer Carol Téten is an engaging presence in the series, providing historical context and calling out dance instructions as professional dancers demonstrate.
