Freddie Mercury Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Farrokh Bulsara, commonly known as Freddie Mercury, was a famous British record producer, keyboardist and pianist, as well as a singer and songwriter. To the public, Freddie Mercury is perhaps best known as the frontman of the popular band called “Queen”. Established in 1970, “Queen” originally included John Deacon, Roger Taylor, Freddie Mercury and Brian May. The band debuted in the music industry in 1973 with the release of their self-titled debut album, which brought them media and public attention. However, it was “Sheer Heart Attack” and “A Night at the Opera” that put “Queen” on the international music scene. With such hits as “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “You’re My Best Friend” and “Killer Queen”, “Queen” managed to establish itself as one of the most popular rock bands at the time. In 1980, the group released their most successful single entitled “Another One Bites the Dust”, which sold more than seven million copies worldwide. With over 150 million records sold, “Queen” is undoubtedly one of the best-selling rock bands in the world.

Freddie Mercury Net Worth $100 Million

The lead singer of “Queen”, how rich is Freddie Mercury? According to sources, in 1981 he earned over $15 million from the sales of “Queen’s” “Greatest Hits” album. Upon his death, Mercury left $850,500 to his personal assistant, and gave the same amount of money to Joe Fanelli and Jim Hutton. In addition to that, he gave approximately $15 million in charitable donations. In regards to his overall wealth, Freddie Mercury’s net worth is estimated to be $100 million, most of which he accumulated due to his involvement with “Queen”.

Freddie Mercury was born in 1946, in Stone Town, East Africa. As a child, Mercury spent a lot of time in India. At the same time, he started expressing an interest in music, as a result of which he had an opportunity to take piano lessons. Mercury began his studies at the St. Peter’s School in Western India, where he formed his first band entitled “The Hectics”. When he was 17 years old, Mercury together with his parents moved to Middlesex in England, in order to avoid the dangers of the Zanzibar Revolution. In England, Mercury attended Isleworth Polytechnic School and later continued his studies at Ealing Art College, from which he graduated with a degree in Art. Following university, Freddie Mercury played in a variety of bands until in 1970 he met Roger Taylor and Brian May, who at the time played in a band called “Smile”. Eventually, the group decided to adopt the name of “Queen” for the band, giving rise to one of the greatest rock bands in music history. With a new name for the band, Freddie Mercury decided to change his last name as well, as a result of which he became Freddie Mercury instead of Freddie Bulsara.

Freddie died in 1991 from an AIDS-related illness.

In regards to his personal life, Freddie Mercury was involved with Mary Austin, whom he dated for several years. However, even though they broke up, Mercury and Austin remained good friends. In 1980s, Mercury was in a relationship with Barbara Valentin, and later started dating Jim Hutton.

Looks like we don't have Freddie Mercury salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 He went to college with Bollywood Legend actress Kumkum's husband, Zahid Ali Abrar. Zahid Abrar and Feddie had a band in Bombay called "The Hectics". They played at local schools, parties and restaurants. Zahid appeared in the Feddie Mercury documentary released in 2000. Zahid Ali Abrar's son is a leading Bollywood director by the name of Hadi Abar.
2 He disliked giving interviews and rarely spoke to the press. He only trusted a select group of journalists.
3 He had a huge crush on the film star Burt Reynolds and liked men who had a similar rugged look.
4 He didn't socialize with the other members of Queen because he had different interests, such as spending time on the gay scene and visiting ballet and opera productions.
5 Inducted into the International Mustache Hall of Fame in 2015 (inaugural class) in the category Music & Arts.
6 Freddie mercury sang The Show Must Go On 2 months before his death to AIDs. Barely being able to stand because of his illness, Brian May told Freddie he would sing the vocals for him. Freddie refused, mustered all of his strength, and sang his first take perfectly.
7 In 1973, while Queen were recording their first album, Freddie Mercury released a single under the name Larry Lurex. The name is a pun of glam rock star Gary Glitter's name and the metallic yarn Lurex. The songs on the single were covers of The Beach Boys "I Can Hear Music" and The Byrds "Goin' Back".
8 He wrote the Queen song "Love of my Life" about Mary Austin.
9 Older brother of Kashmira Cooke.
10 Son of Bomi and Jer Bulsara.
11 Cousin of Perviz Darukhanawalla.
12 Shared an apartment with Barbara Valentin in Hans Sachs Straße, Munich, Germany, during the 1980s.
13 Mercury is the second most impersonated rock and roll performer in the UK after Elvis Presley.
14 He once gave the actor Dustin Hoffman a guided tour of his mansion as Hoffman was thinking of hiring the same designer, Robin Moore-Ede, to renovate an old house he had bought in London.
15 In 2007, over 2,400 music fans were asked by O2 to vote for their dream supergroup. They chose Mercury as lead singer, Jimi Hendrix on lead guitar, Elton John on piano and Phil Collins on drums.
16 Freddie and Eric Carr (second drummer for KISS) passed away within hours of each other on the very same day of November 24, 1991. Mercury died from AIDS. Eric died from cancer, which led to a brain hemorrhage.
17 Following the announcement of his death, tributes came from some of the biggest names in the British music industry. David Bowie said: "We'll all miss him a lot. Together with his band Queen he made a great contribution to popular music." George Michael said: "Freddie Mercury was a huge source of inspiration to me as a child. I religiously attended Queen's concerts year after year. This is a sad day." Phil Collins said: "This is a great tragedy. I had the greatest admiration and a lot of affection for him." Elton John said: "Freddie Mercury was an incredible, innovative singer and frontman for a band. He was a very dear friend of mine and it was a privilege to have known him for some of his life. He was very funny, he was extremely outrageous, he was very kind and he was a great musician and one of the great frontmen of rock and roll bands." In a concert the next day, Sting dedicated his song "Shadows in the Rain" to Mercury.
18 In September 2010, he was named as "The Greatest Rock Legend Of All Time" in a poll for OnePoll.com, beating the King of Rock N'Roll, Elvis Presley, into second place.
19 His favorite movies were Some Like It Hot (1959), George Cukor's The Women (1939) and Imitation of Life (1959) with Lana Turner.
20 Queen's performance at Live Aid (1985) was voted the "World's Greatest Concert" in a 2005 poll for Channel 4 in the U.K. The historic gig fought off competition from Jimi Hendrix's 1969 Woodstock show in second place and The Sex Pistols' raucous show at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in 1976.
21 He was voted the No.1 'Greatest Singer In Rock' by Classic Rock magazine (May 2009/Issue 131).
22 Queen was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6356 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
23 Used a piano as a headboard for his bed and taught himself to play the piano backwards so if a song idea popped into his head when lying in bed, he could reach backwards and play it or record it.
24 While living in Asia,he listened to many Indian artists. Upon arriving in England, he was very influenced by British bands like The Beatles, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin.
25 Released his first solo album, "Mr. Bad Guy", in 1985.
26 Survived by Jim Hutton, his partner since 1985.
27 Penned the hits "Killer Queen", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Somebody To Love", and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".
28 Wrote "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" in the bathtub.
29 Was a huge fan of actress and Broadway star Liza Minnelli.
30 Queen were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture. [November 2004]
31 Queen won the 1992 Brit Award for British Single for their song "These Are The Days of Our Lives" and Mercury was the posthumous winner of the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution. Only John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Sting have also managed to win the Outstanding Contribution Award as both a member of a band and as an individual.
32 Queen won the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution in 1990. All four members of the band came to the stage to accept the award. It was Mercury's last appearance in front of an audience.
33 Despite being a classically trained pianist, he admitted in an interview (Melody Maker, 2 May 1981) that he could read "very little" sheet music.
34 He was diagnosed HIV positive in the spring of 1987.
35 His baby photo won photograph of the year in 1947 in his hometown.
36 Loved cats, and owned many of them. The song "Delilah" is written about his favorite.
37 There is a breed of yellow rose named after him.
38 Said that Aretha Franklin was one of his favorite singers.
39 Was of Persian descent. His ancestors were Persians who fled to India.
40 Achieved grade IV in practical piano and theory.
41 Had a vocal range of 4 octaves.
42 Designed Queen's famous crest using his and his fellow band mates' birth signs: Two lions for Roger and John (Leo), a crab for Brian (Cancer), and two fairies for himself (Virgo).
43 Was an ardent fan of Jimi Hendrix.
44 While buried in the Zoroastrian tradition, Freddie, himself, seldom practiced the family religion.
45 Came in 58th place in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. [2002]
46 After a revolution in Zanzibar, he and his family were forced to flee to England, where he pursued a Diploma in Art and Graphic Design. This knowledge was to come in useful when he designed Queen's famous crest.
47 His song "Bohemian Rhapsody" (1975) was named Britain's favourite pop single of all time on 2002 in a poll by Guinness World Records (GWR). More than 31,000 people voted in the poll for GWR's "British Hit Singles" book.
48 He was educated at St. Peter's boarding school near Bombay, India, where he had his first musical training (grade four piano, both in practical and theory) and also his first experience of performing onstage, with his band, the Hectics. It was at St. Peter's where he picked up the name 'Freddie', soon even his parents addressed him by that name.
49 Loved his cats, and dedicated his solo-album "Mr. Bad Guy" to them. When he was out touring, he used to phone his cats and talk to them for hours. On one of his waistcoats, he has painted portraits of all of his cats.
50 Was an avid and fastidious philatelist (stamp collector). His extensive collection is still exhibited at stamp shows world-wide as being under the estate of his birth name.

54 In his will, Mercury left the vast majority of his wealth (including his mansion home and recording royalties) to Mary Austin a woman he had a close friendship with (and once had a relationship with). The remainder was left to his parents and sister. He also left £500,000 to his chef Joe Fanelli, £500,000 to his personal assistant Peter Freestone, £100,000 to his driver Terry Giddings, and £500,000 to his partner Jim Hutton.
55 When the rock group Smile (formed by Brian May with Roger Taylor and Tim Stafell) split, Freddie joined Brian and Roger to form Queen.
56 Attended Ealing College of Art.
57 Chose not to to get corrective oral surgery to fix his famous overbite (caused by the presence of four extra teeth which pushed his incisors out). He commented early in his career that he wished to have work done on his teeth, but regretted that he didn't have time to do it out of fear that it would damage his voice. Also, chose not to have surgery to remove polyps on his vocal cords for the same reason. Ironically, Freddie was a smoker.
58 Lead singer and keyboard player of the rock group Queen.
59 His ancestors, the Parsees, originated in Persia and fled to India in the 7th century. The reason being they are Zoroastrians and did not want to get converted to Islam.
60 He was a staunch supporter of the British monarchy and named the band Queen as both a reference to this and for the word's sexual innuendo.

#Quote
1 [complimenting David Bowie on his immaculate powder blue suit at Live Aid (1985)] If I didn't know you any better I'd have to eat you.
2 [on heavy metal fans who don't like anything else] That's their problem.
3 [after playing with Queen to 500,000 people over two nights at Brazil's Rock In Rio Festival in 1985] We came to South America originally because we were invited down. They wanted four wholesome lads to play some nice music. Now I'd like to buy up the entire continent and install myself as President.
4 [in a 1984 interview, 7 years before his death] What will I be doing in twenty years' time? I'll be dead, darling! Are you crazy?
5 [on "We Are The World" by USA for Africa] It's a very good song. I think it's a beautiful song and I was gripped by the video 'cos I mean it's nice to have all those stars, there were no ego trips, to be honest, going from one to the other, it was lovely to see all those stars all together.
6 Paul Young's very good. He does a lot of covers, though, doesn't he? I mean, he's got a beautiful voice. I don't know about his writing talent. His cover versions seem to be the best.
7 [referring to his time in Munich and his love for the Bavarian carnival] I live life to the full, everyday is Fasching for me.
8 [after "I Want to Break Free" became a gay liberation anthem] To start off with, that song was written by John Deacon and he's a very happily married man with about four children. I don't know where you've got that message from, it's got nothing to do with gay people at all. It's basically about everybody, it's just somebody who has a very tough life and he just wants to break free from whatever problems he's got. It's got nothing to do with the gay thing.
9 I've worked hard for money. Nobody's given it to me dear! I've earned it so it's mine to do what I want with. So if I want a pyramid in Kensington and I can afford it, I'll have it.
10 A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It's a theatrical event. I have fun with my clothes onstage; it's not a concert you're seeing, it's a fashion show.
11 Stevie Wonder, writing a ballad, you just can't top that guy.
12 [in 1985] I think right now George Michael is very, very good.
13 We started off on a sort of heavy metal footing in the days of Led Zeppelin. I think Led Zeppelin are still one of the greatest heavy metal bands that ever lived.
14 [on what other people thought his songs were about] If you hear it, darling, then it's there.
15 [on Manhattan in the 1980s] It's sin city, but you have to come away at the right time. Stay a day too long, and it grips you. Very hypnotic. It's all tripping in at 8 or 9 every morning, and taking throat injections so I can still sing. It's a real place. I love it.
16 [on rumors he had AIDS] AIDS changed my life. I was extremely promiscuous but I stopped that. Anyone who is promiscuous should have a test. I'm fine. I'm clear.
17 [speaking at his last concert with Queen at Knebworth Park, August 9th, 1986] Earlier on there were rumors of us splitting up, but I mean - fuck 'em - how can you split up when you have an audience like this?
18 [on Jimi Hendrix] He really had everything a rock & roll star should have - style, presence; he didn't have to force anything. He'd just make an entrance and the whole place would be on fire. He was living out everything I wanted to be.
19 When I'm dead are they going to remember me ? I don't really think about it, it's up to them. When I'm dead, who cares ? I don't.
20 I relax in ways most people can't understand. I can relax by actually just sleeping on a plane when I'm flying for 20 minutes, that's my relaxation. That's all I need. I don't need too much sleep. I don't, you know, I don't need tons of sleep, I can go with 3 or 4 hours sleep every night. That's enough for me. I recharge my batteries in that short a time and I'm up again.
21 It's lovely to hear that We Are The Champions is a song that's been taken up by, you know, football fans 'cause that's a winners' song which keeps coming back, I can't believe that somebody else hasn't written a new song to take it over.
22 In terms of press and things, I'm a very hated person, but I hate the press as well. So that goes both ways, but to me I think I've learned to live with it. I'd be a liar to say I'm not hurt by criticism because I mean everybody is, you know, of course I want everybody to say I'm wonderful and they like my songs, but I mean I don't mind actually a sort of genuine well thought out criticism, but I mean of course you're going to get... just... people review our albums without even listening to them and things like that, but I mean that's the way of the world and before I used to get really mad and start tearing my hair out but now I don't have anymore sleepless nights, so just I learned to live with it. Let them all come.
23 I liked to sing, I don't know, call it natural gift or whatever, you know, I'm not afraid to say it. It's just I like to sing and then I suddenly realized that I could actually write songs and then make my own music rather than before I would, you know, sort of copy Elvis Presley songs and things as I do, then I realized that I could actually write my own songs and do it my own way. Then suddenly, you know, there was a little taste of success.
24 I'm a flamboyant person. I like to live life. I certainly work hard for it, and I want to have a good time. Don't deny me that. It might not come again and I want to enjoy myself a little.
25 I don't want to keep playing the same formula over and over again, otherwise you just go insane. I don't want to become stale. I want to be creative.
26 Something like Bohemian Rhapsody didn't just come out of thin air. I did a bit of research, although it was tongue-in-cheek and it was mock-opera. Why not? I certainly wasn't saying I was an opera fanatic and I knew everything about it.
27 I love George Michael because he moves so well and has a sense of dignity and fun.
28 [admitting his sexual promiscuity] I'm just an old slag who gets up every morning, scratches his head and wonders what he wants to fuck.
29 I like to enjoy myself and what better way to do it than on stage in front of 300,000 people?
30 I don't like to explain what I was thinking when I wrote a song. I think that's awful, just awful. When I'm dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance.
31 [on Queen] We're the bitchiest band on earth, darling. We're at each other's throats. One night Roger Taylor was in a foul mood and he threw his entire bloody drum set across the stage. The thing only just missed me - I might have been killed.
32 One of my early inspirations came from Cabaret (1972). I absolutely adore Liza Minnelli, she's a total wow. The way she delivers her songs, the sheer energy, the way the lights enhance every movement of the show. I think you can see similarities in the excitement and energy of a Queen show. It's not glam rock, you see; we're in the show-business tradition.
33 I don't think I'll make old bones and I don't care. I've lived a full life. I really have done it all and if I'm dead tomorrow I don't care a damn
34 The most important thing, darling, is to live a fabulous life. As long as it's fabulous, I don't care how long it is.
35 I'm a very tragic person, but there's always an element of humour at the end.
36 I always knew I was a star, and now the rest of the world seems to agree with me.
37 I'm not married to music, I'm married to love.
38 [on his band Queen] We're in the music business. It's in my blood. The only thing I can do is to write music and perform. That's what I'm going to be doing and I think all of us are going to be doing until we die.
39 I have to go out every night. I hate staying in one room for too long anyway. I just like to keep moving.
40 I am a manipulator of life.
41 Fame and success have brought me everything, except a loving, on-going relationship. I seem to eat people up and destroy them no matter how hard I try to make things work. Sometimes I wake up in a cold sweat, screaming with fear because I'm so alone. That's why I go out looking for someone who will love me, even if it's just for a one-night stand. I fall in love far too quickly, and I end up getting hurt and scarred. It seems I just can't win.
42 Oh God, I pray I'll never get AIDS. So many friends have it. Some have died, others won't last much longer. I'm terrified that I'll be next. Immediately after each time I have sex I think, 'Suppose that was the one? Suppose the virus is now in my body? I jump in the shower and scrub myself clean, although I know it's useless and anyway it's too late.
43 The Carmen Miranda of rock 'n' roll. But what can I say? I'm a flamboyant personality. I like going out and having a good time.
44 My voice takes a beating. The more vocal gymnastics I do in the studio, the more I have to do on stage.
45 I think I'm totally original. I'm sure there are many people who see themselves in me, but that's to them. I'm me, basically, and that's how I like to be.
46 Modern paintings are like women, you'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them.
47 Oh, I was not made for heaven. No, I don't want to go to heaven. Hell is much better. Think of all the interesting people you're going to meet down there!
48 [statement released on 23 November 1991] Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private in order to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with me in the fight against this terrible disease.
49 [on Mary Austin, late 1970s interview] All my lovers asked me why they couldn't replace Mary but it's simply impossible. The only friend I've got is Mary and I don't want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, thats enough for me. I couldn't fall in love with a man the same way as I have with Mary.
50 [speaking in 1974] I am as gay as a daffodil.
51 Years ago, I thought up the name Queen...It's just a name, but it's very regal obviously, and it sounds splendid...It's a strong name, very universal and immediate. It had a lot of visual potential and was open to all sorts of interpretations. I was certainly aware of the gay connotations, but that was just one facet of it.
52 The bigger the better; in everything.
53 I'm just a musical prostitute my dear
54 If I didn't do this well, I just wouldn't have anything to do...I can't cook, and I'd be a terrible housewife.
