Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer, songwriter, record producer, and lead vocalist of the rock band Queen. Regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock music, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Mercury defied the conventions of a rock frontman, with his highly theatrical style influencing the artistic direction of Queen. Born in 1946 in Zanzibar to Parsi-Indian parents, he attended English-style boarding schools in India from the age of eight and returned to Zanzibar after secondary school. In 1964, his family fled the Zanzibar Revolution, moving to Middlesex, England. Having studied and written music for years, he formed Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. Mercury wrote numerous hits for Queen, including "Killer Queen", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Somebody to Love", "We Are the Champions", "Don't Stop Me Now", and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". His charismatic stage performances often saw him interact with the audience, as displayed at the 1985 Live Aid concert. He also led a solo career and served as a producer and guest musician for other artists. Mercury died in 1991 at age 45 due to complications from AIDS. He confirmed the day before his death that he had contracted the disease, having been diagnosed in 1987. Mercury had continued to record with Queen following his diagnosis, and he was posthumously featured on the band's final album, Made in Heaven (1995). In 1992, his tribute concert was held at Wembley Stadium. His career with Queen was dramatised in the 2018 biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. As a member of Queen, Mercury was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004. In 1990, he and the other Queen members were awarded the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and one year after his death Mercury was awarded it individually. In 2005, Queen were awarded an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Song Collection from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors. In 2002, Mercury ranked number 58 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons

Tony’s paintings and prints have been featured in galleries in New York, Chicago, Washington and LA — and can be found in museums in Greece, Italy and The USA. Anthony Rubino, Jr., was born in New Jersey to a first-generation, Italian-American, Roman Catholic family. And then, felt guilty about it. And they ask him why he drinks. Combining his strengths; humor, art and comics, he found his calling in the study of drivel. His latest book, “You Can’t Scare Him He’s A Parent” is a collection of his interna- tionally syndicated comic strip “Daddy’s Home.” His book “Why Didn’t I Think Of That? 101 Inventions That Changed The World By Hardly Trying,” was released is now an internationally syndicated, weekly column in the UK and other English-speaking countries. It’s also in it’s third printing having been re- leased under another title in The UK, Sweeden, Australia and The Netherlands. A third version has been translated into Italian and released last summer. Never a big stickler for math, Tony wrote, “Life Lessons from Your Dog” as the fifth installment of his Life-Lessons book trilogy, which includes “Life Lessons from Your Cat,” “Life Lessons from Elvis (the English version was translated and released in Fin- land as well),” “Life Lessons from the Bradys,” and “Life Lessons from Melrose Place.” Before that he displayed his steely work ethic by penning, “1001 Reasons to Procrasti- nate.” His fear of being inconvenienced by eternal damnation is reflected in his recent tome, “Get Into Heaven: Or Your Money Back.” Along the way Tony has contributed his articles and cartoons to publications such as: Will Ferrell’s “Funny Or Die,” website, MAD Magazine, Cracked, National Lampoon, and the Chicago Tribune. Tony is the creator of the Internationally Syndicated Comic Strip, “Daddy's Home” which appears in more than 250 newspapers and websites and is seen by 26 million people every day. “Daddy’s Home” is a fresh and funny look at the contemporary trials and tribulations of a growing segment of the modern family dynamic -- the stay at home dad. Tony’s designs, comics and words can also be found on greeting cards and other product lines such as calendars, posters, and apparel sold in stores and catalogs worldwide. When not working on his writing and art in New York City he spends his time not working on his writing and art in New York City. Check out, www.rubinocreative.com for more information."
