He was an eccentric in a field already noted for the unconventional, a singer, composer and pianist. Bi-sexual, he founded "Queen" in 1971 and was hot in the '70s and '80s. Their hits included "Love Kills, 1984 which turned out to be prophetic; he died of AIDS-related pneumonia 11/24/1991, London.

Source Notes

LMR quotes date given in "Queen: As it Began" by Jacky Gunn and Jim Jenkins, Pan 1992. p.24.

Sy Scholfield speculated/rectifies the time to 5:50 AM BAT (3 hrs), based on a family interview: "Freddie's English brother-in-law, Roger,... insists that [Freddie] chose the name because Mercury was his rising planet. 'When he told me, I said, it's a bloody good job it wasn't Uranus. Freddie never forgave me for that.' Kashmira, Freddie's sister, gives Roger a look. He says no more on the subject." (Waldemar Januszczak. "Star of India." Sunday Times Magazine 11/17/1996, p. 61).

Frank C. Clifford gives 5:10 AM, speculative, in "British Entertainers."

Lexikon No.4 quotes Meridian 10/1992, p.37 for 4:43 AM, no source.
