In a photo series by Lynn Goldsmith, Freddie Mercury - the king of Queen - appears resplendent onstage in a crown and royal cape. Similarly, a shot of the singer stripped down to red suspenders and circus-striped swim briefs further augments the flamboyant legacy of a dynamic performer described by photographer Richard E. Aaron as "an absolute diva about his appearance - but not to the point that it affected his performance."

"Once in a blue moon an artist comes along who makes my job much easier to do. Freddie Mercury was one those artists," says Preston of working with Mercury.

Mick Rock said "In the early days of my friendship with Freddie, he said to me, 'The most important thing is to have a fabulous life. As long as it's fabulous I don't care how long it is!' His is generally regarded as the greatest voice to be spawned by rock n roll. He could - and did - sing in a myriad of styles. He was also a superb songwriter. I'm happy to have been the progenitor of his most durable imagery, including the Queen II album cover, which was adapted for Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' video. A taste of this imagery will be on display at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, including several prints that have never previously been exhibited publicly. May God Bless Freddie Mercury!"

"We will rock you.... with the best Queen photographs you have ever seen!" says Casey Fannin, director of the L.A. gallery. "We are unveiling never-before-seen images from many of our top photographers including Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Lynn Goldsmith and many more. Each of our photographers has captured the many styles of the 'lover of life, singer of songs' - the one and only Freddie Mercury."
