ORIGIN OF THE QUEEN'S LEAD VOCALIST
Did you know Freddie Mercury, born "Farrokh Bulsara", was of Parsi descent and spent a considerable amount of time in India?
He studied at St.Peter's boarding school for boys in Mumbai and his family surname derives its origin from the town of Bulsar in southern Gujrat.
THE 'BOTTOMLESS MIC'
Freddie's trademark, the "bottomless mic" happened accidentally. During a performance, his mic stand crackled. The dedicated artist that he is, Freddie did not put a halt to the show but carried on with his rendition instead of replacing it. Since then he continued to use a mic stand. The legacy was thus born.
FREDDIE, THE STAMP COLLECTOR
"Queen's" lead singer was fond of collecting stamps. Freddie the philatelist was an exceptionally quirky individual, on and off stage. His collection has been displayed at shows, worldwide.
INVENTOR OF THE QUEEN CREST
Queen's crest was Freddie's brain child. It consists of the zodiac signs of all the band members. The Leos of John Deacon and Roger Taylor, Brian May's Cancer crab and two fairies representing Freddie's Virgo sign makes the crest more remarkable. The "Q" represents the band's name with the phoenix protecting it.
FREDDIE'S COLLAB WITH MICHAEL JACKSON
A collaboration by two of the world's greatest rock stars was a treat for all the fans. MJ and Freddie Mercury set the world ablaze with "State of Shock", "Victory" and "There must be more to life than this".
FREDDIE'S FOUR OCTAVE VOICE
Freddie's voice had an amazing recording range covering four octaves. Most of his songs fall in the tenor range. He raised the bar for all rock singers in his age and for the generations to come.
FREDDIE'S FIRST SOLO
"Mr.Bad Guy" was Freddie's first solo album which was released in 1985. It contained 11 songs, all written by the lead vocalist and was dedicated "to my cat Jerry—also Tom, Oscar and Tiffany, and all the cat lovers across the universe—screw everybody else"
The sudden death of the rock star due to AIDS, created a huge void in the world of music.
Freddie would have celebrated his 71st birthday on Sept.5. Listed at number 18 on Rolling Stone's 100 "Greatest Singers" ever, the "Lover of life singer of songs" artist would have created wonders had he been alive.
