Featuring contributions from Brian and Roger on Queen’s involvement with the soundtrack, ‘A Kind Of Magic – Making The Original Highlander‘ by Jonathan Melville has been reviewed as “An engrossing read with plenty of on-set anecdotes and insight.” (Neil Smith, Total Film.) and “A definitive history…which every fan should read.” (Scott Varnham, Starburst).
The story of an immortal Scottish warrior battling evil down through the centuries fused a high-concept idea with the kinetic energy of a pop promo pioneer and Queen’s explosive soundtrack to become a cult classic. ]
Says author, Jonathan Melville: “In 2020 I’ll be releasing my second book, this time on 1986’s Highlander. Once again I’ve spoken to dozens of people involved in the film, including stars Christopher Lambert and Clancy Brown, and Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, as I look back at the making of a cult classic.”
‘A Kind Of Magic – Making The Original Highlander‘ is released on 17th September 2020. Details and order HERE
