Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury!

The prolific British frontman for Queen who died just four years after he was diagnosed with aids in 1987, would have been 65 years-old today!

Freddie was the voice behind “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” not to mention “Radio Ga Ga,” the root of Lady Gaga’s moniker.

Queen had a whopping 15 albums, and at one point reached a level of popularity that was comparable to The Beatles, especially after their famous Live Air performance in 1985, that was later called “The 20 minutes that saved music.”

Freddie Mercury was one of the best performers of all time, above Bowie and somewhere near Michael Jackson.

“I’m just a musical prostitute, my dear,” he’d say casually.

Happy birthday, Freddie! The melodic yet rocking universe misses you.

Freddie Mercury, born Farrokh Bulsara in Zanzibar.
(September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991)
