Freddie Mercury birthday: Net worth and greatest hits

September 5 is Freddie Mercury’s birthday and if you’re one of his fans, you must be singing ‘We Will Rock You’ in his memory today.

Known for his flamboyant stage style, Freddie Mercury was undoubtedly one of the greatest frontmen of all time.

He broke down barriers with his impressive four-octave vocal range and artistic direction.

Even after being diagnosed with Aids, Freddie continued to record with his rock band Queen.

He composed many hits for Queen, such as 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' 'Killer Queen' and 'Somebody to Love'.

His Queen career was dramatized in the 2018 biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ starring Rami Malek.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ grossed $910.8 million worldwide against a production budget of about $52 million.

At the time of his death in 1991, Freddie's net worth was approximately $50-60 million.

He has been posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2001) and the UK Music Hall of Fame (2004).
