I am delighted to announce that the Winners of the copies of the book are…..

Donna Standridge and Ryan Cregan

Congratulations and thank you to all who took part. I will be in touch by email with the winners in the coming week.

The Queen Unseen book covers all the areas that were relevant in Queen’s working life, during Peter Hince’s time as Queen’s longest-serving roadie and head of their crew. There’s lots of new material and surprises for Queen fans and it is a book to interest anybody who likes stories of rock and roll life in the 1970s & 1980s. Many Thanks to the Author Peter Hince and John Blake Publishing for organising the copies for this competition.
