People usually remember the reason for this death that still remains a social stigma. But today we celebrate the glorious life of Freddie Mercury, also known as the front man of legendary band, Queen. The indelible mark he left on the scene, with flamboyant live stage performances and the eternal hit, Bohemian Rhapsody among others, he will always be remembered as not only a style icon but an undeniable raw talent the world never got to fully savor due to his early demise at the age of 45.
Born Farrokh Bulsara, the young lad learned to play the piano and had the uncanny talent of replicating what he heard on the radio. Though his childhood was unstable – moving from Zanzibar to India to the United Kingdom before he was 20 – he found solace and belonging in the music he wrote. His stage performances were electric, what with all the costumes and drama that surrounded each appearance. It’s like he left a piece of himself every time he performed and a 100% of his love to his ardent fans. A great part about Freddie Mercury is that he never shied away from who he was and was way ahead of his time in every way. He made performing look like child’s play – so effortless and yet so enigmatic. His voice, a natural baritone but when performing a clear tenor, still rings in the minds and hearts of those fortunate to be present during his shows and for his fandom still expanding long after his death.
It’s been 24 years since the icon sadly passed away, but the fact still remains that his music and the legend he left behind will be worshipped and adored by those who understand the true Freddie Mercury.
