Artist Of The Month: Queen

Queen are undoubtedly one of the most iconic bands to have ever graced the stage and their influence from the 70's onwards is undeniable.

Founded originally by Bryan May and Roger Taylor, the band was floundering until it found new life and purpose through the voice and charisma of a new front man, Freddie Mercury. Galvanised by his presence and his flair for song writing, they tore up the rock handbook and created a sound that was distinctly theirs.  

Queen were certainly different, a bracket above the Glam rock from which they emerged and an inspiration for countless artists since. 

Hobo's proudly carries a huge range of Queen's official merchandise (some of which you can find on our website) and a selection of which you can see here.

 Queen She Makes Me (Stormtrooper In Stilettos)

There is no better way to highlight Queen's eclectic persona than with one of their most unique songs, "She Makes Me (Storm Trooper In Stilletos)". Unusual for Queen, the bulk of the song consists of a two chord pattern and no solos but epitomises their ability for a vary in their stylistics. It is regarded as one of Brian May's deeper songs with a sense of resignation and despiration. Essentially, it's a lot more than just the exhibition people perceive it to be! Anyways, we sell that tee. You can grab that online too!
