The Two Sheds Mix Tapes 46-50: The Music of Queen

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Queen. They are without a doubt one of the greatest rock bands of all time, and in the late Freddie Mercury they had the greatest front man in the history of music.

I could go on and on about how great they are, but their back catalogue speaks for itself. Their music really is timeless, and it shows just how good Freddie, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon were not just as a combined unit but in their side projects as well.

So without further ado let’s take a look at this mega-Queen Mix Tape collection, a series of five collections that brings together all of their group and solo work from 1973 onwards.(The links for each individual Mix Tape are under the titles.)
