Today would have been Freddie Mercury’s 69th birthday. He was born Farrokh Bulsara in Zanzibar on this day in 1946.
Did you know that Freddie didn’t change his teeth because he was scared it would change the sound of his voice? He had a famously horrible overbite…and he had the millions to fix it, but he chose music over his looks. Not many artists could say that nowadays, heh?
There has been debate over his best live performance.
The winner: Bohemian Rhapsody in Montreal, 1981.
