    Default Freddie Mercury

    Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 24 November 1991) was a British rock musician and songwriter, best known as the lead singer of the rock band Queen and often heralded as the best rock singer of all time. He is remembered for his vocal abilities and charisma as a live performer. As a songwriter, he composed many international hits, including "Killer Queen", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Somebody to Love", "We Are the Champions" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". In late 1991, Mercury died of complications from AIDS.

    Give the lad a break.
    He's a newbie and probably doesn't know his way around the site.

    We know the Scouser Hall of Fame is just for Scousers, but why should somebody whose just joined us know it?

    Just by chance I found this in Wikipedia

    "Freddie Mercury lived in the pub Dovedale Towers for a short period (he was known as Freddie Bulsara at the time.)". Here

    Maybe that's why he posted it - not a scouser but some connection it would seem.

    Also gets a mention here

    Never heard of this connection before and you can't always rely on Wikipedia to be accurate.

    yes, I read about it in a biography - I was surprised to read that he'd lived for a time in Liverpool.

    Another Liverpool related bit of Queen trivia is that that night at the Sink was also the first time that Freddie, Roger and Brian all performed together live on stage.

    Default Halewood connection

    When I worked in Halewood there was a woman there who was the librarian (Sheila Bursyn) .
    Her son when he was at college in the 60's was in the same band as Freddie, who came up to Liverpool and dossed at her house one weekend.
