The legend that was Freddie Mercury died twenty years ago today. A buck-toothed, homosexual called Farrokh from Zanzibar, he went on to become the greatest showman and live performer the world has ever been blessed with. His sad death from AIDS twenty years ago was the first major public figure to die of the disease, and lead to international heightened awareness of the risks it poses. Elizabeth Taylor, never normally someone that captures my sort of sentiment, of spoke of Mercury as “an extraordinary rock star who rushed across our cultural landscape like a comet shooting across the sky.” I can remember exactly where I was when I learned of his death (dispute only being ten years old at the time) and he is still sadly missed.
