20 years without Freddy Mercury

November 24th marked twenty years since the death at the age of 45 of Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist of Queen, would have turned 65 on 2011 had his life not been prematurely ended by AIDS.
Mercury formed Queen, one of the most successful bands in the history of rock and roll, in 1970 with guitarist Bryan May and drummer Roger Taylor. During their 20 year career they released twelve albums, selling more than 170 million copies.


A revolutionary artist, charismatic, provocative and theatrical in his stage performances, Freddie Mercury continues to be one of the most memorable musicians of the twentieth century.
