Freddie Mercury doodle by Google celebrates rock star’s life

Google has created a new interactive, animated doodle that celebrates the life of one of rock’s greatest performers, Queen’s Freddie Mercury. The doodle features a large play button that kicks off ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ as the animation cycles through iconic photos and moments of Freddie’s career.

The doodle then launches a Google search for 'Freddie Mercury' bringing up websites, wikis and photos of the great man's career and achievements.
Born on 5 September 1946 to Indian parents in the British Protectorate of Zanzibar, Mercury has continually been celebrated as one of the greatest singers of all time as well as one of rock’s most flamboyant performers. What mesmerised people most was his incredible vocal range.

Major hits with Queen included ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Somebody to Love’, ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Killer Queen’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love.’

Freddie died in 1991 after a four-year battle with AIDS.
