Today marks the 65 anniversary day of Freddie Mercury, the iconic front man of Rock&Roll legends and one of my favourite groups: Queen!
As most of you know, Mercury died of AIDS-related causes in 1991 leaving the world in total shock...
Yes, there was still a lot of prejudice towards people infected with AIDS, a disease that left people wondering about people's personal life. But, I think that shock wasn't much of a reaction related to his illness, but more to the fact that they lost at a relatively young age, one of the biggest musical geniuses to ever walk this planet!
Gifted with a tremendous voice and a personality to match, Farrokh Bulsara later known as Freddie Mercury became a symbol! Not only of the 70's and 80's where Queen rose to prominence, but to every music lover!
His music is universal and eternal. His contribution is without a shadow of a doubt one of the biggest legacies to be left in the world and that is just one of the reasons why he is still highly remembered!
The tributes to mark this occasion are a simple proof of that...
From musicians in the likes of Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, to fictitious characters like Miss Piggy and even Google... Everyone leaves their mark as a sign of respect and admiration!
This is my tribute!
Happy Birthday Freddie!
