Early Life And Education

Freddie Mercury was born on September 5, 1946, in Stone Town, Tanzania. Growing up under the care of his parents, Bomi Bulsara and Jer Bulsara, he had the company of his sister, Kashmira Bulsara

Throughout his educational journey, Freddie attended various schools, such as St. Peter’s School and St. Mary’s School in Mumbai and Panchgani. Later, he pursued his passion for art at Ealing Art College and ultimately earned his degree from the University of West London.


After Staffell departed from Smile in 1970, Mercury entered the band, assuming the role of lead vocalist and deciding to rechristen the group as Queen.

 Despite receiving positive feedback from critics, their initial albums, “Queen” (1973) and “Queen II” (1974), failed to gain widespread popularity among the masses. Nevertheless, the band’s extravagant performances and Mercury’s awe-inspiring vocal prowess gradually started capturing people’s interest.

Queen achieved worldwide fame and superstardom in 1975 with the release of their fourth album, “A Night at the Opera,” which included the immensely popular and influential song, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” This six-minute epic combined operatic elements with rock-and-roll energy, captivating audiences and solidifying Queen’s place in music history.

Queen maintained their success in the 1970s and 1980s by releasing several successful albums such as “News of the World” (1977), “The Game” (1980), and “Innuendo” (1991). 

Additionally, they gained immense popularity as a live band, renowned for their extravagant stage productions and electrifying performances by Freddie Mercury.

In addition to his successful tenure with the band Queen, Freddie Mercury also dedicated his time and talent to pursuing a thriving solo career. He released two remarkable solo albums, “Mr. Bad Guy” in 1985 and “Barcelona” in 1988.

 Both albums received immense commercial success and were highly regarded by critics worldwide for their exceptional quality and artistic brilliance.
