Queen singer Freddie Mercury, who passed away in 1991, would have been 66 years old on Sept. 5.

His unparallelled vocal, songwriting and arrangement talents — matched with Brian May‘s similarly unique guitar style — permanently established Queen as much more than a typical rock band.

From ‘Sheer Heart Attack’ and ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ to the unmatchable ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ — and we could keep going for a long time — Queen and Mercury covered a dizzyingly wide range of creative ground. Their influence is felt in the work of literally hundreds of groups that followed in their footsteps.
