Queen.... Bohemian Rhapsody
His was born "Faroukh Bulsara" in Zanzibar, and he died "Freddie Mercury", in a six million dollar home in London. On November 24, 1991, the announcement came: "Freddie Mercury died peacefully this evening at his home at 1 Logan Place, Kensington, London. His death was the result of pneumonia brought on by AIDS."
Freddie was the first major rock star to die of the disease. He didn't announce his affliction until 24 hours prior to his death, stating "I felt it correct to keep this information private in order to protect the privacy of those around me." During his last few months, Freddie was cared for by a few very close friends, Jim Hutton, Joe Fanelli and Peter Freestone. Freddie's former girlfriend Mary Austen, with whom he remained close, showed up most days. In fact, it was Mary who inherited the Logan Place house, and still lives there today.
Official Cause of Death : Bronchopneumonia ; AIDS.
