Things we learned about Freddie Mercury after he died
Freddie Mercury didn't just have a legendary singing voice, he also had a legendary strut and a legendary stage presence. He was so charismatic, he could make the legions of people who paid to see him sing do all the singing for him.
With that kind of reputation, you'd be forgiven for assuming that Freddie Mercury loved the spotlight. And though he did clearly adore some aspects of his fame, off stage he was an intensely private person — so private that there were elements of his life that even his own bandmates didn't understand.
