Queen’s Brian May has shared a touching tribute to his former bandmate Freddie Mercury on the 29thanniversary of the lead singer’s death.

Brian shared a photo of Freddie, adding: ‘Missing you Freddie, on this day. Rest in Peace. Rock in Eternity. Bri’.

Freddie had died at the age of 45 at his home in Kensington on November 24, 1991, just a day after confirming he had been battling AIDS

The iconic lead singer of Queen was mourned by friends and fans, who covered the outer wall of his home with tributes, something which became a shrine to the singer until it was removed in 2017.

Brian’s tribute came after he spoke out about Queen’s legendary Live Aid performance in 1985, dubbing it ‘kind of ok’.

Reflecting on how the band felt about the 22-minute set after seeing it depicted in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, he told TalkRADIO: ‘It was so strange kind of reliving it for the movie.


‘They recreated it so incredibly faithfully, and to be there on that set was really spine chilling; it brought it all back.

‘And at the time, we weren’t aware of what an epoch-making thing it was, really. We came off [thinking], “Well, that went kind of OK.”

‘But we didn’t realise that it had made such a lasting impression on the ether. … It sort of lives on, doesn’t it?’

He added of Freddie’s unmistakeable stage presence: ‘He had a great spatial awareness, and that’s something very important.

‘Freddie was wonderful for that, and we just clicked from the very beginning.’
