Freddie Mercury, born under the name Farrokh Bulsara (September 5, 1946-November 24, 1991) was a Zanzibar-born British musician. He is best known as the lead singer and co-founder of the rock band Queen, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. He was noted for his vocal talents and for his live performances. He has composed many international hits such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen, Somebody to Love, Dont't Stop Me Now, We Are the Champions, and Crazy Little Thing Called Love among many others. He had also led a solo career, which didn't have much success, and he occasionally appeared as a producer or guest musician for other artists. Mercury grew up in India and was referred to as "Britian's first Asian rock star." In 1991, he died of bronchopneumonia, which was induced by HIV/AIDS. In 2006, Time Asia referred to Mercury as one of the most influential heroes over the past 60 years. He has also been criticized for keeping his ethnicity and HIV status hidden from the public.
