Google Doodle celebrated the 65th birthday of the late Freddie Mercury, lead vocalist of the band Queen on Monday, September 05, 2011, by creating an animated journey of his musical career in Google‘s web homepage.
According to history, Freddie Mercury was born on September 5, 1946 and became famous for his songs like Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now, We Are The Champions and many more, which are still being played until now.
He spent most of his childhood in India where he learned to play piano and created his first band named Hectics. When he reached the age of 17, he studied art in England. His skills greatly helped him to design the Queen’s logo. Until then, he started his musical career with Roger Taylor and Brian May and became successful.
Freddie Mercury passed away on November 24, 1991 at the age of 45.
Meanwhile, Brian May, Queen’s guitarist wrote a blog posted at the official Google blog in remembering Freddie Mercury.
“Some people imagine Freddie as the fiery, difficult diva who required everyone around him to compromise. No. In our world, as four artists attempting to paint on the same canvas, Freddie was always the one who could find the compromise — the way to pull it through. Brian May was quoted on the report.
“If he found himself at odds with any one of us, he would quickly dispel the cloud with a generous gesture, a wisecrack or an impromptu present,” May added.
Below is the Google Doodle in celebration of Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday, which was said to be the most memorable Google Doodle of all.
