REMEMBERING FREDDIE MERCURY: On this day (November 24th) in 1991, Freddie Mercury, best known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen, died at his home in London’s Holland park at the age of 45. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “Somebody to Love,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “We Are the Champions.” Mercury also led a solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.
