Let’s not beat around the upper lip bush. The legendary Queen singer is probably the first figure that comes to mind when the words ‘music’ and ‘moustache’ are uttered in close proximity. The late and great Freddie Mercury had a voice and personality that could never be matched or equalled.

Freddie Mercury, born Farrokh Bulsara on the 5th September 1946 was a British singer-songwriter and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Queen.

As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range.  As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “Somebody to Love,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “We Are the Champions.” In addition to his work with Queen, he led a successful solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.

The power of his vocals, combined with the power of his most impressive Moustache make him an instant legend in the genre of rock music, and in life in general. Often emulated at Movember Galas across the globe, Freddie is an inspiration to Mo Bros everywhere.

On the 24th Movember 1991, the world unfortunately lost one of the greatest Mo Bros of all time as he passed away from bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS , only one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease.

The world misses by will never forget the great Freddie Mercury.

Check out some of the amazing performances from one of the greatest concerts ever captured on film, Queen Live at Wembley, 1986. This is truly Freddie at his greatest!
