Queen Unseen is an account of the many exciting years I spent on tour, in the recording studio, on video shoots and day to day life with one of the world's biggest and best ever rock bands. It is an insightful, enlightening and humorous account for anybody who has ever wondered what working for Queen, or a major rock band of that era really entailed. The book is not a chronological history or definitive biography of the band, but a personal story of spending my youth travelling the world and living the rock and roll lifestyle - to the full!
My thanks and appreciation go to the many people who have supported and encouraged me in getting my memories published.

The book, first published in 2011 by John Blake Publishing contains photo sections - the original hardback and paperback editions in colour, later editions in monochrome.

The book is available on Amazon. And as an e Book.

Here are some of the many foreign territory covers:


Japanese edition of Queen Unseen, published July 2016 by Shinko Music Publishing.



The paperback edition of Queen Unseen was published on October 1st 2015 by Music Press - an imprint of John Blake Publishing. Four years on from the original hardback edition, I had the chance to reflect, and include new stories, observations and memories, while editing out material. I tightened the writing to make the book flow better, however, the structure and chapters remains the same.

Overall it is the same book - but improved. The editor says it is !
Personally I think it's a much better read than the first hardback edition - and the e book, audio book and paperback re-prints have the updated text.
The photo sections are as in the original book and a forward section of pages with quotes and reviews on the original book is also included.
