KnuckleBonz Turns 20 ! ! !

For 20 years, Knucklebonz has been creating stunning collectibles and art pieces that celebrate some of our most beloved music artists. From our Rock Iconz® Series – showcasing realistic 3D statues of iconic performers – to our 3D Vinyl® series featuring limited edition collectibles inspired by the greatest album art of the past 50 years, Knucklebonz has consistently produced unique limited edition collectibles for what we think is an underserved fan base….US! the music Superfans!

Throughout 2023, we will be celebrating our 20th year with super rare limited statues from all our series Rock Iconz, 3D Vinyl and On Tour™. As well as some super cool merch featuring our classic KnuckleBonz Skull as well as the “KnuckleKidd,” KnuckleBonz official/unofficial mascot.

First up for January, we will drop our new QUEEN Rock Iconz statues inspired by the band’s image circa 1975. Think Shear Heart Attack when the band was arrayed in the white and black themes from the QUEEN II album. Our original QUEEN set from circa 1982 and The Game and Flash Movie Soundtrack  eras as SOLD OUT.

Queen, formed in London in 1970, and achieved massive success over its 45-year career. The original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, and drummer Roger Taylor. Bassist John Deacon joined the band in 1971 to round out the band that would grow from progressive rock torch bearers to one of the greatest acts in music history.

Rock Hard in the New Year!

Happy Bday Freddie Mercury – The Definition of Rock Iconz

Look in the dictionary next to “Rock Star” and you will see Freddie Mercury’s picture…The definition of Rock Iconz

The life of Farrokh Bulsara began on the East African island of Zanzibaron September 5, 1946. 25 years later in London under the name of Freddie Mercury, he was fronting the now legendary rock group named Queen.

The Bulsara family moved to Middlesex in 1964 and from there Freddie joined up with a blues band called Wreckage while studying graphic design courses at Ealing College of Art. While singing for Wreckage, a fellow student introduced Freddie to Roger Taylor and Brian May, founder members of a band called Smile. Smile metamorphosed into Queen when Freddie joined Roger and Brian as the lead vocalist. The final member of the band, which was to stay together for the next 20 years, was bassist John Deacon, who joined the band on 1st of March 1971.

The rest is rock history. EMI Records and Elektra Records signed the band and in 1973 their debut album Queen was released and hailed as one of the most exciting developments ever in rock music. Very soon Queen’s popularity extended beyond the shores of the UK as they charted and triumphed around Europe, Japan and the USA where in 1979 they topped the charts with Freddie’s song Crazy Little thing Called Love. Freddie Mercury, who majored in stardom while giving new meaning to the word showmanship, left a legacy of songs, which will never lose their stature as classics to live on forever.

Despite twenty years having passed since Freddie lost his life to HIV complications, he remains in the minds of millions throughout the world as one of the greatest artists we will ever see.

We are at the end of the release of our 2nd KnuckleBonz Ltd. Edition Statue. No FoMO ! You can order Freddie Mercury here

All KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz statues are officially licensed, limited edition collectibles. This is a fine-arts production process where each statue is hand-cast, painted and numbered. Rock Iconz are created in 1/9th scale making them 8 to 9 inches tall. Each statue comes with a certificate of authenticity on the base of the statue.

Happy BDay Rock Iconz John Deacon of QUEEN

KnuckleBonz wishes a very Happy Birthday to Rock Iconz John Deacon of QUEEN…Have a great day Deacy !

Queen bass player John Richard Deacon, born on this day 1951. John’s interest in music was growing at an incredibly early age and he took the decision to learn how to play the guitar. He was soon well practiced enough to form his first band, The Opposition.

Over the next few years, The Opposition went through numerous line-up changes and played many gigs. The Opposition’s bassist left the band, it fell to John to fill the gap. John was now playing the bass.

In October of 1970, John went to see a performance by a new band called Queen. Several months later, in early 1971, John again encountered Queen, when he was introduced to Brian May and Roger Taylor. Queen had just lost their seventh bass player and they asked John if he was interested in auditioning. Days later John found himself at a lecture hall at Imperial College where the band was rehearsing. Not long after, on 1 March 1971, John Richard Deacon became the fourth and final member of Queen.

John’s image as ‘the quiet one” began to evolve on the band’s third album, Sheer Heart Attack. His first song first composition for Queen appeared, with the rather catchy Misfire. John’s writing skills flourished in the recording sessions which followed. He would go on to compose some of Queen’s biggest and most popular hits including You’re My Best Friend, I Want To Break Free’ and Another One Bites the Dust, propelling Queen’s career to new heights.

Today John lives a life retired from Queen but still takes an interest in the continuance of the legacy of the band, and remains in contact with former bandmates, Roger Taylor and Brian May.

We are coming to the end of our QUEEN Rock Iconz set and it will be SOLD OUT very soon. Order here today…Don’t Miss Out

QUEEN A Night at The Odeon – The Before and After Moment

On December 24th, 1975 QUEEN recorded a live show at the legendary Hammersmith Odeon in London. The was not released until 2015 and it’s a must listen and see for any QUEEN fan. The set is of course amazing with the first 2 albums featured heavily, but what is really captivating this show is the “before and after” moment for the band. They had peaked at #12 on the US Charts with Sheer Hear Attack and have just released the A Night at the Opera album. Bohemian Rhapsody is featured in a melody of song snippets with no particular fanfare, giving no hint of how the lives of the band would change over the next year. Once A Night at the Opera and the mania of Bohemian Rhapsody takes hold, QUEEN is not longer that super cool progressive rock band that early fans had to themselves….they become one of the biggest recording/live acts in the world. A bitter sweet before and after moment for the fans that were there at the beginning.

KnuckleBonz is currently working with QUEEN and are coming to the end of our initial Rock Iconz Statues for the band. As you know, all KnuckleBonz work are officially licensed limited edition. Check out Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon  circa 1982 here.

We are beginning to design the new QUEEN Rock Iconz statues for tentative release late in 2022. KnuckleBonz is thinking of going back to this QUEEN A Night at The Odeon era for inspiration. Sound off here and let us know what QUEEN fans would like to see.

Rock Hard!
