Yesterday, September 5, 2011, was Labor Day and also Freddie Mercury's birthday. The popular and immensely talented Freddie Mercury, whose real name was Farrokh Bulsara, was born on Thursday, September 5, 1946. Freddie Mercury would have turned 65 years old yesterday if he had not died an untimely death due to AIDS on November 24, 1991.
Freddie Mercury was the lead singer of the rock group Queen. Freddie's excellent singing voice, combined with his sometimes whimsical and often powerful performances, made him one of the most popular rock stars of all time, and the fascination with Freddie Mercury's life and death continues to this day. If Freddie had not died at such a young age, who knows what other amazing things he might have accomplished in his life?
