Google Doodle’s Tribute To Freddie Mercury


Freddie Mercury Google Doodle

If you are a Queen fan like me, you are going to love this Doodle, it’s simply awesome :). Google Doodle pays tribute to rock legend and Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury on his 65th birthday. Born Farrokh Bulsara on 5 th September 1946 to Indian parents in Zanzibar, Freddie was celebrated as one of rocks greatest performers. Freddie died in 1991 at the age of 45, after a four year battle with AIDS.

Click on the play icon, and you’ll see a YouTube animated video of Mercury playing to his hit song “Don’t Stop Me Now”. This Google Doodle is the second longest doodle, (Charlie Chaplin tribute being the longest) and is a treat for all Queen and Freddie Fans.

Queen guitarist Brian May shared his thoughts on Freddie Mercury on Google’s blog

Freddie would have been 65 this year, and even though physically he is not here, his presence seems more potent than ever. Freddie made the last person at the back of the furthest stand in a stadium feel that he was connected. He gave people proof that a man could achieve his dreams—made them feel that through him they were overcoming their own shyness, and becoming the powerful figure of their ambitions. And he lived life to the full. He devoured life. He celebrated every minute. And, like a great comet, he left a luminous trail which will sparkle for many a generation to come.

RIP Freddie and thanks for giving us such amazing music.
