Who was Freddie Mercury?



 Freddie Mercury (1946-1991)  was a popular British-Indian musician who is considered one of the greatest male singers of all time. In his early years as an artist, he loved to play the piano. In 1970, Mercury and his friends Brian May and Roger Taylor formed the Rock band Queen, where he was the lead vocalist and also the songwriter. In 1985, Freddie Mercury started his solo career, which was a great transition from Rock music to Dance/Disco music.

 Freddy Mercury remained successful in the music charts during the 80s and 90s because of his potential singing talent. Many music experts would describe his voice as magical and unusual. He got a vocal range of 4 octaves, which is commonly used by opera singers. Freddie Mercury never had vocal training and he was able to do a deep throated baritone to a cracking falsetto. 
 Today Freddie Mercury is no longer with us, he died at the age of 45 from bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS. I don´t understand why scientists can´t find a cure for HIV/AIDS, it`s pretty sad that medicine hasn´t changed over the last years. Anyway, I keep myself optimistic that the cure is going to be developed soon 🙂 Please, check out my favourite song from Freddie Mercury, called “Living On My Own”, it`s wild and crazy, you`ll love it!
