Google Celebrates Freddie Mercury’s Birthday

queen_34828

On what would have been the 65th Birthday of Queen’s lead singer, Freddie Mercury, Google decided to transform their logo in his honor. In true geek fashion, they turned Queen’s classic “Don’t Stop Me Now” into an animated wonderland with Freddie as the superhero he sings about in the song. As a music artist and member of the iconic British band, Freddie Mercury’s influence is still visible today in the likes of high profile popular artists from Lady Gaga (who took her stage name from the Queen song “Radio Ga Ga”) to the Foo Fighters.

Known for his larger than life stage presence and his four octave vocal range, Freddie Mercury was also an accomplished composer who wrote many of the songs that were featured on Queen’s 15 studio albums. He died on November 24, 1991 due to complications with AIDS.
