Funko Pop 375 Freddie Mercury I Was Born To Love You

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer and songwriter, who achieved worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of the rock band Queen.  Regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock music, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range.  Mercury defied the conventions of a rock frontman with his theatrical style, influencing the artistic direction of Queen.

Born in 1946 in Zanzibar to Parsi-Indian parents, Mercury attended English boarding schools in India from the age of eight and returned to Zanzibar after secondary school. In 1964, his family fled the Zanzibar Revolution, moving to Middlesex, England.  Having studied and written music for years, he formed Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor.  His charismatic stage performances often saw him interact with the audience.  He also led a solo career and was a producer and guest musician for other artists.

Mercury was diagnosed with AIDS in 1987.  He continued to record with Queen, and posthumously featured on their final album, Made in Heaven (1995).  In 1991, the day after announcing his diagnosis, he died from complications of the disease at the age of 45.  As a member of Queen, Mercury was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004.
