ROCK Sex: Astounding Science Fiction > Queen

ROCK Sex says, 'That guy thinks he's the Queen of the universe. (I got news of the world for you, he is.)'.


Frank Kelly Freas painted this cover for the pulp anthology magazine "Astounding Science Fiction" in 1953.

Queen's drummer Roger Taylor owned a copy, and the band commissioned Freas to repaint his iconic work as their album cover in 1977.

This is the gatefold cover.

Here is the artist (second from left) showing the band his celebrated work.
