Google Doodle celebrates Freddie Mercury moving and singing in 8-bit style
Freddie Mercury, 70-80’s rock idol and lead singer of the Queen, would have been 65 today. Despite dying young, at the age of 45, he left a rich legacy as a songwriter, with songs such as “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions”; even greater however is his legacy as a live performer and entertainer.
Queen guitarist Brian May, wrote on Google’s official blog:
Freddie would have been 65 this year, and even though physically he is not here, his presence seems more potent than ever. Freddie made the last person at the back of the furthest stand in a stadium feel that he was connected. He gave people proof that a man could achieve his dreams.
True to form, Google has designed an animated Doodle, which can be seen on its front search page today. We nominate it as the most entertaining Google Doodle yet.
