In 1992, John Marshall of Gay Times expressed the following opinion: Mercury was a ‘scene-queen’, not afraid to publicly express his gayness but unwilling to analyse or justify his ‘lifestyle’

Freddie Mercury born Farrokh Bulsara, September 5, 1946, was a British musician, singer, and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Queen. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, Mercury composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen“, “Somebody to Love“, “Don’t Stop Me Now“, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love“, and “We Are the Champions. In addition to his work with Queen, he led a solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.

It was as if Freddie Mercury was saying to the world, ‘I am what I am, So what?’ And that in itself for some was a statement. A writer for a gay online newspaper felt that audiences may have been overly naive about the matter, “While in many respects he was overtly queer his whole career (‘I am as gay as a daffodil, my dear’ being one of his most famous quotes), his sexual orientation seemed to pass over the heads of scrutinizing audiences and pundits (both gay and straight) for decades.

Freddie Mercury Solo –ย Published on Nov 22, 2012

Freddie Mercury was a man of many talents and many different sides. The songs he wrote for and with Queen filled stadiums around the globe and have rightly gone down in history, but he also embarked on a solo career that took him from the clubs of Munich and New York to the great opera houses of the world. He was the ultimate showman, but he kept his private life away from the prying eyes of the media; a larger than life rock star who loved disco, classical music and ballet. He was a restless spirit, a true chameleon who revelled in his own contradictions. All the different sides of this iconic musician can be found on Freddie Mercury: Messenger Of The Gods – The Singles. All formats released September 2nd 2016. ย Freddie Mercury; lead singer of Queen and solo artist in his own right. Songwriter, musician, singer of songs, lover of life. Freddie majored in Stardom while giving new meaning to the word Showmanship. He left a legacy of songs that will never lose their stature as classics and will live on forever.

In 2009, a plaque was unveiled in Feltham where Mercury and his family moved upon arriving in England in 1964. The star in memory of Mercury’s achievements was unveiled in Feltham High Street by his mother Jer Bulsara and Queen bandmate Brian May. A tribute to Queen has been on display at the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas throughout 2009 on its video canopy. In December 2009 a large model of Mercury wearing tartan was put on display in the centre of Edinburgh as publicity for the run of We Will Rock You at the Playhouse Theatre. A statue of Mercury stands over the entrance to the Dominion Theatre in London’s West End since May 2002, where the main show has been Queen and Ben Elton’s musical We Will Rock You.
