Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury, leader singer for Queen, can be seen in this photo at his home Garden Lodge in London. This was taken in the spring of 1991 and thought to be the last known photo of Freddie Mercury.

Mercury lived the last months of his life at this house where he and friends continued to deny that he was sick. 

On November 22, 1991 Mercury decided to release a public statement concerning the rumors and had Queen’s manager Jim Beach come over to discuss. The next day the statement was released on the behalf of Mercury confirming that he did have AIDS. 

Less than 24 hours later Mercury died the evening of November 24th, 1991 in his home.

The official cause of death was bronchial pneumonia resulting from AIDS.
