This month finally sees the release of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody – a movie that has been beset with so many difficulties along its journey that lots of people, including Queen themselves, wondered whether it would ever see the light of day. In celebration, we’re taking a deep dive into the period of Queen’s story that the film covers, culminating in their amazing, career-rejuvenating performance at Live Aid in 1985.
