Rock star. Singer. Legend. “He was an extraordinary rock star who rushed across our cultural landscape like a comet shooting across the sky,” Elizabeth Taylor said of him.

Excessive. Theatrical. Infectiously charismatic. “He could make the last person at the back of the furthest stand in a stadium feel that he was connected”, said Queen guitarist Brian May.

Freddie Mercury, from Wikipedia

Vocalist. Pianist. Guitarist. Songwriter. He wrote 10 of the 17 songs on Queen’s Greatest Hits album, including “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, “Somebody to Love”, and “We Are the Champions”. He also designed Queen’s crest, or logo.

Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar on September 5, 1946, to Zoroastrian parents. He was a lovelorn trailblazer who overcame intense feelings of self-hatred (toward his heritage) and loneliness. Though he died in 1991, his legacy still lives through his lyrics, his live performances, and his voice.

Long Live the King!
