Did anyone wonder what that purple and blue Google logo was about today? As it turned out, Google was honoring the legendary Freddie Mercury, band member of Queen, the classic rock band. Born on September 5th, 1946, and died November 24th, 1991, in only 45 years of life, Freddie managed to make an everlasting imprint on Rock & Roll. He was born with the name of Farookh Bulsara in Zanzibar, Tanzania. While he was growing up, Freddie and his family spent most of their time living in India. There, he attended St. Peter’s boarding school. Freddie had an apparent love for music, and began attending piano lessons at age seven. In 1964, the family changed course, and moved to Middlesex, New Jersey. Freddie began attending Ealing College of Art, and there he studied graphic design. While living in Middlesex, he joined a band called Wreckage, which mainly focused in on blues music. Later, Freddie was introduced to Roger Taylor and Brian May, the founders of a band called Smile. Later, Freddie joined Roger and Brian as the lead vocalist of the group, and that was the main turning point for Smile, and they soon after reinvented themselves into Queen. John Deacon, a bassist, was the last member to become part of the band. One of Queen’s most popular singles, Bohemian Rhapsody, was released in 1975, and was an instant success, but their triumph did not stop there. Queen was becoming popular around Europe, Japan and the US, as they originally began fronting the band in London. Queen’s music inspired and enraptured millions, and is still doing so today. Freddie Mercury was a remarkable piece of the legendary Queen, and as equally as important, musical history, and he will be remembered as moving millions with his music.
