The second knowledge before the music quiz: Who is Freddy Mercury?

What you need to know is that Freddie Mercury is only a pseudonym. His real name is Farrokh Bulsara. He was born on November 24, 1946 in Tanzania (at that time it was still the British protectorate of Zanzibar) and his origins are Persian and Indian. As a young man, he was already very talented in music and the principal of his school proposed to his parents to pay him a musical training. That's when Farrokh started taking piano lessons. After that, and despite his shyness, he joined "The Hectics", a rock band from his school as a pianist.

After Tanzania's independence, his family decided to move to England where he studied art while listening to the music of the Beatles and Elvis Presley, which he covered with the Hectics. Before Queen, he joined the bands Ibex, Wreckage and Sour Milk Sea. While he follows the group Smile very closely, which signed with the American label Mercury Records that Tim Staffell, the singer of the group, proposes to Farrock to replace him.

After he accepted, he imposed on the Smile group the name Queen, which would become a legend 20 years later. And it was on November 24, 1991 that Freddie Mercury died of AIDS.
