It’s been 28 years since we lost Queen’s frontman, Freddie Mercury. Namely, the iconic singer died of bronchial pneumonia resulting from Aids at the age of 45, on November 24, 1991.
As millions of fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late performer, Queen’s official Twitter account posted a picture of the singer holding a crown while on stage.

Born as Farrokh Buslar in Zanzibar on September 5, 1946, Mercury moved with his family to Middlesex in England in 1964 before meeting May and Roger Taylor and forming Queen in 1970.
The band went on to record many world-famous hits, including Bohemian Rhapsody and Don’t Stop Me Now before Mercury’s death in 1991. We kindly propose you to watch Bohemian Rhapsody – a movie about the life of Freddie Mercury and his band Queen.
