Freddie Mercury… We remember you
On September 5th, 2011, the legendary frontman of Queen Freddie Mercury would have turned 65. He was the legend in everything: Queen, approach to writing music, way of life, stage image and songs he composed which are now considered all-time rock classics.
Freddie spent his early years in Zanzibar and India and moved to Britain in 1964, where he studied art. He always showed great interest and, what’s more, talent in music. Mercury is especially famous for his voice which was a tenor while singing. It was a rare type of voice: he could easily switch from bass to soprano in almost no time which very few singers can do.
Freddie could turn any Queen’s shows into a theatrical, flamboyant rock concert and his manner of performing on the stage and energy drew huge audiences to their concerts. He was never bashful to show all extravagant sides of his nature which he could only do on the stage. In real life the legendary musician was shy, introvert and kept very much to himself. His private life was sacred for him which resulted in few interviews and unwillingness to talk about his health condition even when it was obvious that there was something very wrong with him.
Unfortunately, Freddie Mercury lived a very short, but a very rich life. And he’s definitely the example to be followed: self-c0nfident, determined, not afraid of taking daring decisions and being different from others, courageous and true to himself. This man was and still is a legend and he’ll be remembered in the hearts of all music fans around the world for many years to come.
