Freddie Mercury had, in short, an amazing voice. He had a four-octave range, but prefers to sing in falsetto. However, due to a throat condition, he had to lower these notes when singing live.
Freddie Mercury had faced criticism from the public due to his sexuality (he was bisexual), but kept up an admirable "I don't give a shit" attitude.
In early 1987, tragedy hit the band when Freddie Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS. However, he refused to admit to the public he had the disease. Despite this, Queen released two more albums. The signs of illness were almost impossible to hide during the making of the music videos for the singles I'm Going Slightly Mad and These Are The Days of Our Lives, which were very near the end of Mercury's life.
During the last few days of his life he shut himself in his home and finally sent out a message on November 22, 1991, revealing he had the disease: "Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue."
A little over twenty-four hours later, Freddie Mercury died peacefully of bronchial pneumonia, but today remains a legend, live in everyone's heart.
The lead singer of Queen. More than likely the best rock n' roll singer ever. Also extremely sexiful.
His voice is ORGASMIC, it's so good. I mean, come on.
But then he died from AIDs in 1991. ;-; Life is so unfair.
