Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) Born in Zanzibar to Parsi-Indian parents, Mercury attended English-style boarding schools in India from the age of eight and returned to Zanzibar after secondary school. In 1964, his family fled the Zanzibar Revolution, moving to Middlesex, England. Having studied and written music for years, he formed Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. Mercury wrote numerous hits for Queen, including “Killer Queen“, “Bohemian Rhapsody“, “Somebody to Love“, “We Are the Champions“, “Don’t Stop Me Now” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love“. His charismatic stage performances often saw him interact with the audience, as displayed at the 1985 Live Aid concert. He also led a solo career and was a producer and guest musician for other artists.
