"Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara in 1946) died on this day 30 years ago.
A prolific songwriter, arranger and music producer, a consummate theatrical
entertainer and one of the 20th century’s best-known lead singers, Mercury
fronted Queen from 1970 until his death in 1991.
Artistically, he challenged many of the prevailing pop and rock parameters,
willing to take musical risks and happy not to be part of the mainstream. He
fearlessly pushed artistic boundaries, believing in the spontaneity of live
performance: every show was different."
