The British singer is best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Queen. His flamboyant persona, as well as distinct four-octave range, helped lead Queen to music stardom. Such notable hits include “We Are The Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which helped make Mercury a pop culture icon. He passed away from AIDS complications on November 24, 1991. In 2001 and 2002, alongside Queen, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
