Lead Vocalist

Farrokh Bomi Bulsara, known as Freddie Mercury, was the lead singer of Queen. He was also a compositor and helped creating many of Queen’s best hits. Freddie was born on 5 September 1946 in Stone town, in the British protectorate Zanzibar. His parents, Bomi (1908–2003) and Jer Bulsara (1922–2016) were Parsis from the Gujarat region of the then-province of the Bombay Presidency in British India. As Parses, Mercury and his family practiced the Zoroastrian religion. The Bulsara family had moved to Zanzibar so that his father could continue his job as a cashier at the British Colonial Office. He had a younger sister, Kashmira. Mercury was born with four supernumerary incisors. His life was hard because of his sexual orientation, that was not supported by his parents, neither by the society. On the evening of 24 November 1991 Mercury died at the age of 45 at his home in Kensington from AIDS. Although he died, his legacy continued and is still continuing.
