Google Doodle Pays Homage to Queen Front Man Freddie Mercury on His 65th Birthday

On behalf of all Queen listeners around the world (except the US) who want to pay homage to the legendary Freddie Mercury on his 65th birthday, search giant Google had dedicated the latest version of its Google Doodle to the Queen front man.

Born on September 5, 1946 in India, Mercury, along with his family, moved to England in 1964. Six years later in April 1970, he was joined by drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May to form what would be later known as one of the most popular and critically acclaimed acts in the music industry.

The band name “Queen” was suggested by Mercury. Despite the reluctance of other members to use the name, he stubbornly stuck by it and as history would prove, he did it for good reason as the band went on to become one of the most popular acts not just in the UK, but all over the world.

The Google Doodle, upon being clicked, goes on playing a 100 second long mini clip with animated images of the singer in his various avatars.
